A great legacy and a great bloke. Congratulations Greg enjoy your travels

This man has done more for waste management and environmental sustainability within Metro North than any other person and on retirement will leave a legacy many will endeavour to follow. Thanks for your commitment, values and absolute passion for MNHHS Gregg, all the best to you and your future endeavours!!!

Greg is awesome. He has guided us to manage our waste & recycle a lot of our consumables. Always happy to help & give advice. 😊😊😊

Greg has consistently provided Metro North with the very best advice and instruction on waste management. A real team player, he has worked tirelessly with little acclaim. Congratulations Greg on your retirement. It is well deserved.

Hi Greg hope you are well.

Plenty of time now to feed your cruising addiction Happy Retirement Thanks for your dedication

I’d love to see a coffee cup recycling program on campus and a incentive for those who don’t use single use cups. We’re getting there and lots more to be done. C’mon Metro North values in action here together in TEAMWORK, and HIGH PERFORMANCE we could learn a thing or two from out buddies in Metro South Health who are doing great things recycling coffee waste and clinical consumables making money to maintain gardens for the enjoyment of staff and visitors as seen on #WarOnWasteAU

Caring for tiny lives is a team effort. Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland is a special piece of the puzzle, providing accomodation for families of babies undergoing treatment at #RBWH. Often, these very same babies require our Milk Bank donations. RMH SEQ Volunteer Anna, pictured, gives up two days every week to support families by welcoming them to the house, cooking meals, playing with children and offering a listening ear to parents.
