Balloons in our Cemeteries

South Australians are committed to the environment and have a reputation as leaders in innovative and responsible waste management.

In keeping with our reputation, Adelaide Cemeteries has moved to ban helium balloons from its cemeteries. In July last year, Adelaide Cemeteries Authority (the Authority) became the first cemetery in Australia to obtain the International Standard, ISO140001 Environmental Management accreditation. This standard means the Authority is committed to improving its environmental performance over time.
