On average, more than 70 per cent of materials in your general waste bin can be reused or recycled, including packing wrap, cardboard boxes, metals, timber and food.
Avoiding, reducing or reusing your waste makes good business sense and saves valuable water, energy and raw materials.
Follow these steps to arrange a free Bin Trim consultation to determine how much you are throwing away and how much could be avoided, reused or recycled:
Step 1 Details
Contact Scott & Associates Consulting on 0408415196 to register your business with the Bin Trim program.
Step 2 Waste survey
A trained Bin Trim assessor will visit your business and complete a survey of your waste.
Step 3 Bin Trim plan
The Bin Trim assessor will help you to create a waste reduction action plan.
Your assessor can help obtain quotes for new recycling services and equipment from your existing service provider.
You may be eligible for a rebate of between $2000 and $25,000 to help with the cost of purchasing recycling equipment. Rebates are only available to businesses assessed by an EPA-funded Bin Trim assessor.
