Bin Trim

The Bin Trim Program provides free support to businesses to maximise its recycling and minimise its waste to landfill.

Roughly 70% of things in a business’s general waste bin can be 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.
