A while back we changed the name of our Wastewater Services business unit to Water Recycling Services.
Why Water Recycling?
By referring to ‘water recycling’ rather than ‘waste water’, we hope to change perceptions about water use. No water is ‘waste’ water, it’s a precious resource we borrow, use, clean and carefully recycle, again and again.
It’s all part of our Love Every Drop strategy – if we can change the relationship we all have with water, we’re likely to use it more responsibly and efficiently.
Everyday 927 million litres of used water flushes through 76,200km of sewers to 1,119 water recycling centres. We collect and treat used water from 2.44 million households and over 110,000 businesses.
We also have a Keep It Clear campaign as part of our commitment to reduce sewer blockages - find out more here.
