Perth City YHA and Sustainability

Perth City YHA is committed to reducing its environmental footprint and being a responsible community member through a mix of heritage conservation and environmental sustainable practices and services.

Initiatives include: 

YHA Sustainability - Energy

Energy Efficiency:

  • We’re powered by the Sun! Our 37 kW Photo-Voltic solar system (fancy speak for solar panels) generates about 190kWh per day, providing about 20% of our energy and reducing our carbon footprint by around 40 metric tonnes each year! 
  •  Low energy and timed lighting: no need for lights on in empty rooms, same goes for our air-con!

The saving with the use of the solar system is equivalent to eliminating the carbon footprint of 7x average WA’s household´s annual electricity consumption. Made possible by the Sustainable Hostels Fund, we’re thrilled to be making change through solar power

YHA Sustainability - Social

Waste Minimisation:

  • Recycling stations in kitchens, common areas and office areas to recycle anything from printer cartridges or our recycled paper, to tinnies of beer and plastic containers, and even dead batteries!
  • No plastic bottles or plastic bags on site, we only sell reusable, and offer bag sharing for grocery runs.
  • Swap shelves give second hand goods, clothing, food and more, new life
YHA Sustainability - Water

Water Saving:

  • We’re taking efficiency to the next level with dual flush toilets, water efficient showers and front loader washing machines!
  • Get educated with signage encouraging guests to take shorter showers, turn off taps while brushing teeth, report leaks etc.
