This project provides the information and documents needed to help the Fire Protection Association Australia take a leadership role in reducing the environmental impact of hazardous waste generated from routine maintenance of fire protection systems. Our team observed, surveyed, and interviewed representatives from fire protection maintenance companies. We also interviewed suppliers and recyclers of fire protection equipment. An economic analysis was performed to compare current industry practices with recommended best practices. Many companies were not aware of proper disposal methods for batteries and fluorescent tubes. We created two good practice guides and a position statement for FPA Australia to distribute and promote environmental practices within the fire protection industry.
