Free waste management assessment to help save money
Local businesses in south east NSW are being urged to register for a free waste management assessment that helps them save money and time and boosts profit.
This opportunity for local businesses is being provided by the Southern Regional Waste Alliance (SRWA) – an alliance between the Southern Region Business Enterprise Centre and the Canberra Regional Joint Organisation Waste services group of local councils – under a NSW Government Bin Trim program.
SRWA program manager Geoff Pryor said the program aims to reduce costs, save time, build staff morale and enhance corporate reputations. Generating less waste also saves valuable water, energy and raw materials.
NSW businesses send more than 2.5 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. Over the next 18 months, the present Bin Trim project aims to help 12,000 businesses across NSW.
Trained waste assessors will provide a free waste assessment to small and medium businesses across the region. They will work collaboratively with business owners and managers to find practical and creative ways to address their waste issues.
Pryor said, “To be part of this program, companies need to register with the Alliance office – details below. Once registered, which is a simple process, a visit will be organised to the company premises by a member of our team of experienced assessors.
“In our region, the Southern Regional Waste alliance aim is to help more than 500 companies divert commercial and industrial waste from landfill.” Registration details are below.
