Thredbo Chamber Update 

Tomorrow is the Thredbo Top to Bottom. Get up early and get yourself out in the fresh air because this is a race that you won't want to miss! 

Just a reminder to all to please pass on the correct information to your guests and make it known to them that masks and checking in with the QR code is a requirement in all venues in Thredbo. Face masks are compulsory in all indoor venues, including the Gondola and public transport. Face coverings are highly recommended in outdoor areas. A face covering is not a mask. It is a strange and difficult time for everybody so let's all remember to be respectful and considerate to others.

Thredbo Environment and Sustainability Update

 
 Help Thredbo Resort divert 50% of waste away from landfill by 2023!
 
Caring for the environment is a team effort! Thredbo resort currently achieves a recycling rate of 36% and climbing. Working together as a community we aim to divert 50% of waste away from landfill by 2023 and encourage you to be part of protecting the village and mountains we all value so much. You can help by –
 
  • Recycling - Thredbo collects plastic bottles, glass, and cans in yellow bags/bins and paper and cardboard in blue bags. Help divert waste from landfill and tackle the problem at the source by taking a little time to spilt your recycling thoughtfully.
  • Composting - Thredbo now has a new Closed Loop organics recycling machine, doubling our capacity for food waste recycling and allowing us to increase the number of restaurants, lodges and apartments in Thredbo taking part. Interested in recycling your food waste? Contact the friendly Thredbo Environment Team for more info!
  • Buy Smart - Simple switches go a long way. Avoid products with unnecessary packaging and reuse where possible.
Let’s continue to work together towards a more sustainable future, today! For more information, questions or suggestions get in touch with Andy from the Thredbo Environment Team on andy_mudge@evt.com.

Recycling of soft plastics  

Did you know that soft plastic such as GLAD wrap, bubble wrap, snack wrappers and cereal box liners cannot be placed in Thredbo's regular yellow recycling bags. Soft plastics need to be disposed of separately. 

Plastic cannot biodegrade – it breaks down into smaller pieces and accumulates in the environment. Wildlife including fish and birds are threatened by ingesting and becoming entangled in plastics that drift into their habitat. Plastic particles also accumulate in landfill where toxic chemicals may seep into groundwater and downstream water sources. It is estimated that around eight million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year!

As consumers, we need to acknowledge the problem and rethink our consumption of plastics. There are many plastic waste hierarchy’s on the web, but they all have the 4 R's in common.

Refuse single use plastics wherever possible – when grocery shopping purchase loose items not packaged in plastic, bring your own reusable bags and containers for takeaway food.

Reduce your plastic footprint – choose products that contain less plastic packaging and fewer plastic parts – what happens to those products at their end-of-life?

Reuse existing products where possible – glass and stainless steel are long-lasting, durable, healthier alternatives to plastic. If you do end up with plastic containers, you may be able to re-purpose them (storing seeds for the garden, nuts and bolts in the shed)

Recycling programs are struggling to keep up with the massive amounts of plastics they receive. Recycling is a band-aid solution rather than a prevention – and should be considered only if you cannot refuse or reuse. There are REDcycle programs across Australia for soft plastics, and most hard plastics can be recycled. 

The good news is that you can collect your soft plastics and drop them off to the collection point at Woolworths in Jindabyne or Cooma. 

Help keep our beautiful mountain environment plastic free!

Public Health Notice  


Dear Sublessees,

 

The Chief Health Officer has signed a concerns notice under the Public Health (COVID-19 Interstate Travellers) Order (No 3) 2021 with effect from 8pm Thursday 5 August 2021. Under the notice: 

  • All of Victoria is an area of concern and so anyone who has been in Victoria after 8 pm today must comply with the stay at home requirements and only leave home with a reasonable excuse. They will be required to comply with this requirement for 14 days since they were last there (or until the notice is revoked).
    • The previous exemption in place in relation to the NSW/Victorian border region continues in effect
      • NSW border region residents do not have to comply with the stay at home requirements if the only place in Victoria they have been in is the Victorian border region
  • The 11 QLD LGAs continue as an area of concern (the stay at home rules apply)
  • QLD, Vic and SA remain affected areas. This means any person who enters NSW and who has been in one of these areas in the last 14 days must complete a declaration (this continues existing requirement currently in place). The exemption in relation to declarations continue (there is an exemption place in relation to QLD and one in relation to Vic – though there are different)

 

There remain a number of places of high concern (which are likely to change over coming days)

  • People who have been to a close contact place at the time specified in the notice must not enter NSW unless they are a NSW resident (or transiting to the ACT). If they are in NSW, they must self-isolate until it has been 14 days since they were last at the close contact place.
  • People who have been to a casual contact place at the time specified in the notice must not enter NSW unless they are a NSW resident (or transiting to the ACT) or they have had a negative COVID-19 test after being at the venue. If they are in NSW, they must self-isolate until it has been 14 days since they were last at the casual contact place or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test.

If you have any queries, please contact me.
