Bin Trim

The Bin Trim program is here to provide free help and support to NSW businesses to maximise its recycling and minimise its waste to landfill. It also helps save time and money, while caring for the environment.

Roughly 70% of the things in a business’s general waste bin can be reused or recycled. From cardboard, paper and plastic through to food waste – so much of this ends up in the general waste bin, when it could be avoided, reused or recycled.

Minimising the amount of waste you send to landfill is not just good for the planet; it is good for your business, helping to

  • attract more customers by showing your environmental awareness
  • increase staff morale
  • gain recognition for actions taken
  • reduce impact on the environment

95% of businesses that have added a recycling service are diverting more waste and improving its productivity and efficiency. Are you ready to join them?

Your business may also be eligible for a rebate of between $1,000 and $50,000 to help with the purchase price of recycling equipment. If you are interested in accessing a rebate, email bintrim.rebates@epa.nsw.gov.au.

Benefits to the community

NSW businesses send more than 1.8 million tonnes of business waste to landfill each year. More than 70% of this could be reused or recycled. Reducing waste sent to landfill has environmental and economic benefits for everyone.
