Assessing businesses for a 'bin trim' to help recycling

SMALL and medium sized businesses in the Richmond Valley are invited to register for a free waste assessment to determine if their business is eligible for a 'Bin Trim' recycling rebate.

Clarence Nationals MP, Chris Gulaptis said as part of National Recycling Week, the NSW Government has announced it would double the recycling rebate to encourage more businesses to reduce waste.

"Up to $50,000 (instead of $25,000) is now available through the Bin Trim rebate for small and medium sized enterprises to purchase small-scale recycling equipment.," he said.

"It's is a great way for businesses to save money and reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill each year."

To be eligible for the rebate, an SME must undertake a free waste assessment by an approved Environment Protection Authority assessor and develop a waste-reduction action plan. If the assessment concludes that recycling equipment will help divert more waste from landfill, the SME can then apply for a rebate to cover half its capital costs of acquiring the small scale recycling equipment.

The program, which is funded through the $35 million allocated to the Business Recycling Program, was established under the government's Waste Less, Recycling More initiative.
