Port Douglas Shuttle Service Shifting Focus

One of the first businesses to provide Cairns to Port Douglas shuttle services to travelers, Adrenalin Transport, will be shifting its focus from daily shuttle runs to instead prioritize tours and medical services.

According to Adrenalin Transport owner, Mark Wallace, the business is due for a change of pace following half a decade of operating in Port Douglas and surrounding areas, providing Cairns to Port Douglas shuttle services to travelers in the area.

Wallace says that the change in direction for the business is a business move made to keep the business running as many other companies provide the service that his company provided in the five years of its operations, one that’ll be good for the long-term existence of Adrenalin, but one he considers bittersweet, all the same.

The business owner says that, since he took over the business, he’s made a lot of friends handling daily shuttle runs, and that, with these changes, he won’t be able to see them regularly anymore, which he finds sad.

Wallace describes Adrenalin as the first Uber, before Uber was even a thing, which really helped him, he says, get to know the area and the people living there via his shuttle business.

Adrenalin has undergone a few changes in focus over the years, though few as notable as this one, even managing to win some awards and accolades over the years, proving itself as a lucrative business.

That same success, however, attracted the same competition that made the company shift gears, with Wallace saying that the market is now saturated, with a lot of shuttles charging the same as it was half a decade ago, which he describes as problematic due to the fact that rising fuel prices made continued operations difficult.

Adrenalin Transport is working to get funding from the local government for tours, as well as increasing their focus on providing transport to patients in Cairns in need of medical specialists, with Wallace describing the change in focus as embracing personal service as a business philosophy.

Adrenalin is still available for charter for events, like weddings and Christmas parties, and will still be running the overnight trip from Mossman to Cairns, complete with return trip, which they recently introduced earlier in 2019.

5 Benefits Of Recycling Waste

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are the 3 R’s in waste management. Apart from reducing the amount of consumption and thereby the amount of waste generated, and reusing stuff, recycling waste is the need of the hour. Recycling waste helps to decrease the amount of junk that is dumped in landfills and also protects the environment.

Waste management companies across the world and junk hauling Orange County agencies, prefer to recycle waste materials because it offers the following benefits.

  1. Conservation of natural resources

Recycling waste items helps us to conserve our finite natural resources. For example, recycling paper helps to conserve forests, recycling plastics conserves fossil fuels, recycling metals eliminates the need of mining and recycling glass conserves resources like sand.

  1. Protects Wildlife and Ecosystems

Recycling waste products reduces the need of new raw materials. This will in turn reduce the need to exploit natural resources. We can save wildlife and protect the ecosystems as recycling lessens the disruptions to the environment. As the demand for new raw materials reduces, the forests, rivers, oceans etc. are protected from damage.

Recycling will also protect the vulnerable people, who live near the forests and rivers. The demand for new resources effects people the most. The poor people living near forests and rivers are displaced and evicted from their natural habitats.

  1. Saves Energy

Sometimes manufacturing different products from recycled materials consumes very less energy, in comparison to manufacturing them from new raw materials. For example, recycling aluminium consumes 95% less energy when compared to making goods from new raw material, in the same way recycling steel saves 70% energy and recycling paper saves 40% energy.

  1. Slows Down Climate Change

Recycling waste has many advantages and slowing down climate change is the important of them. Recycling old materials reduces the need to source and process new raw materials. Recycling also reduces the amount of waste dumped in landfills, thus decreasing the amount of pollution. Hence reduction of emissions and reducing greenhouse gases helps to control the disastrous effects of climate change.

  1. Creates New Jobs

Recycling can help to boost the economy by creating new employment opportunities. Recycling will turn waste into valuable material and provide jobs for many people.

Recycling offers a number of benefits apart from protecting our planet from harmful pollutants. Many junk hauling Orange County firms and waste management firms opt for recycling waste as it is eco-friendly and saves costs.
