With the Single-use and Other Plastics Products (Waste Avoidance) Act 2020 coming into effect in South Australia from 1 March, Winc is working with customers to promote and support better waste management practices. This includes:
To assist this process, customers with prohibited single-use plastics on their contract or hosted catalogues are being notified and alternatives offered.
Winc is also working with customers in the Aged Care and Medical sectors to ensure that single-use plastic straws continue to be made available to people with a disability or medical need.
The Single-use and Other Plastics Products (Waste Avoidance) Act 2020 is the first legislation of its kind in Australia and a positive step to avoiding waste. Winc is committed to supporting customers with their sustainability goals. The full list of Winc’s sustainable cutlery, straws and stirrers can be viewed here.
Winc has worked with new and existing local and international suppliers to ensure the availability of items in high demand as businesses return to working on-site. Hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial wipes, masks, hand towel, toilet paper, hand wash and anti-bacterial sprays are available for immediate delivery. All new sources of supply have been carefully evaluated to comply with Winc’s strict social and ethical procurement policies and product quality standards.
While Vinyl Disposable Gloves are now in plentiful supply, due to lower factory output in South East Asia, Winc is experiencing low supply of all Latex and Nitrile Disposable Glove options.
Contactless deliveries are offered by all Winc drivers. This means keeping a distance of 1.5 metres wherever possible and signing for orders on behalf of every customer.
If your organisation and employees are continuing to work from home, Winc can support by delivering everything for the home office to individual residential locations, at your contracted prices. To sign your organisation up to the Winc Home Delivery Service, please contact your Winc Account Manager or register your interesthere. Winc Home Delivery is available to all contract customers.
