The Bin Trim rebate enabled Horgans Furniture and homeware wholesaler to purchase a shredder to handle their cardboard waste in-house. Horgans now save 6.1 tonnes of cardboard per year from reaching landfill as well as cost savings for their business.

The Paramount Hotel had its sights set on achieving zero waste to landfill which is a big challenge for a rapidly expanding enterprise. With some good ideas, and a NSW EPA Bin Trim rebate, it’s now Sydney’s first zero waste hotel - and they save thousands of dollars each year.

For this yacht club, on-site worm farming has turned an expensive waste into a valuable resource. A Bin Trim rebate helped the club to purchase a worm farm which now deals with 90% of its food waste and turns it into compost and fertiliser for the club’s extensive grounds and gardens.
