Waste and recycling services for businesses
NSW businesses send more than 1.8 million tonnes of business waste to landfill each year. Would you like to reduce your waste?
‘Bin Trim’ is an innovative waste and recycling initiative run by the NSW Environment Protection Authority to assist businesses to reduce waste and save money. Businesses with fewer than 400 employees could be eligible for a free waste assessment from an EPA ‘Bin Trim’ assessor. This includes receiving a detailed waste report, an easy to implement action plan and ongoing support. You could also save money with access to generous rebates of between $1000 and $50,000 to help with the cost of purchasing recycling equipment. For more information go to www.epa.nsw.gov.au/Bintrim
