At Perup: Nature’s Guesthouse sustainability is at the core of everything we do.
The centre runs almost entirely on solar power, with a diesel generator as backup. A planned upgrade to the solar power system in early 2018 will see the site run entirely on power provided by the sun.
All of the water used on site is rainwater collected from the roofs of the buildings. As such we encourage all of our guests to be restrained in their use of this very precious resource. Nearly all of our hot water systems on site are also solar powered to reduce the amount of energy we use.
We recycle everything we can onsite, including all organic waste, which is composted before being taken offsite. All recyclable materials are taken to the Boyup Brook transfer station before being taken to Perth for recycling. We are constantly reviewing our purchases for all of the items we use at Perup to ensure that we are minimising the amount of packaging that comes on site and ensuring that what packaging does come on site is recyclable.
We encourage all of our quests to help us reduce the waste produced at the Perup:Nature’s Guesthouse by ensuring that all recyclable material and organic waste is placed in the appropriate bins.
