Cost Reduction Opportunity for St Kilda Traders

The Port Phillip Council is committed to assisting businesses to reduce operating costs whilst improving their environmental sustainability, particularly in the areas of electricity and recycling/waste management.

The Port Phillip EcoCentre has been commissioned to conduct an assessment of cost reduction opportunities for St Kilda Traders. This will be done via a face to face interview with the owner (or nominated business manager) by an EcoCentre staffer. The interview will take about 10-15 minutes and businesses that participate in the survey will qualify for benefits and support. 

To participate in the survey please contact:

Yasmin at the EcoCentre on 9534 0670 or email

Or contact Jeff Elliot, City of Port Phillip (Economic Development), on 9209 9676 or email

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.
