Peter Bitto
Executive Director

Peter has a Master of Science degree, specialising in Applied and Analytical Chemistry. He came to Australia in 1969 from Czechoslovakia and shortly after his arrival, was employed as an R&D Chemist and later as the Chief Chemist and National Technical Manager by Collie and Co, at that time, the largest printing ink manufacturer in Australia.

In 1986, after the Collie and Co take over by Adsteam, Peter started his own Chemical company – DS Chemport Australia P/L, which under 18 years of his leadership grew at an average rate of 33% P.A. and became the largest manufacturer and supplier of printing chemicals in Australia, as well as a substantial exporter into more than 30 countries worldwide, including Japan, USA, UK, Canada and most Asian counties.

In 1989 DS Chemport entered directly into the Asian market, by establishing an equal 3 party joint venture company in Malaysia with German and Malaysian partners and the same year entered also into the New Zealand market by starting up DS Chemport N.Z. based in Auckland.

Like DS Chemport Australia, the Malaysian and New Zealand companies also exhibited rapid growth and by 2002, when the whole group was sold to Fuji Hunt, all 3 companies dominated their respective markets.

After the sale of the business to Fuji Hunt, Peter bought a substantial share in Advanced Recycling Australasia, (ARA) a company specialising in recycling Mercury containing waste, such as Fluorescent Tubes, HID lamps and Dental Amalgam. In 2003 ARA was sold to Southern Rocycling P/L, one of the largest non-Ferrous metals recyclers in Australia. In 2007 Southern Rocycling was purchased by CMA Australia.

Peter is currently employed by CMA Australia (CMV) as a National Sales and Marketing Manager and is also a director of Enviropoles.

Enviropoles have been working with over 300 organisations to reduce cigarette butt litter, offering high quality servicing options and support.

Recent health related legislation and smoke-free policies has forced smoking outdoors, and onto the streets, resulting in a significant increase in visibility, and gaining the attention of the community.

Enviropoles currently service a range of industry groups and sectors, including:

  • Federal Government
  • Local Government
  • State Government
  • universities
  • retail and shopping precincts 
  • office and residential buildings.

Enviropoles also offer a complimentary consultative service, to assist you in planning your cigarette litter management strategy. As part of this our experienced team will provide guidance on pole placement, service scheduling and design of spaces to ensure you are achieving the best possible outcomes.

With an aim of reducing cigarette litter world-wide, we are expanding into the UK, Japan, Canada, North America and Europe.
