Reducing waste is good for business – it can reduce costs, save time, build staff morale and enhance your corporate reputation. Generating less waste also saves valuable water, energy and raw materials.

Bin Trim has been designed to help small and medium sized businesses quickly identify simple actions they can take to start cutting waste and boost profits.

Free assessments and rebates

If your business employs between one and 199 employees, a Bin Trim assessor may be able to conduct a free waste and recycling assessment and produce an action plan for your business.

Your business may also be eligible for a rebate of between $1,000 and $50,000 to help with the cost of recycling equipment. Your Bin Trim assessor will help you to apply.

NSW businesses send more than 1.8 million tonnes of business waste to landfill each year. The good news is more than 70 per cent of this could be reused or recycled.

Trial the Bin Trim tool

Enter some basic information about your business and the Bin Trim tool will produce an action plan that identifies which materials you could be recycling or re-using.

Reducing waste sent to landfill has environmental and economic benefits for the whole community.
