Why Business Waste Matters

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.  Reducing waste is good for business and valuable water, energy and natural resources. By reducing the demand on raw materials you can lessen the impact on the environment and reduce purchasing and waste disposal costs in your business.


The Business Waste Reduction Project has been designed to support business to reduce their waste. The benefits to business are often reduced waste disposal costs, a leaner and more sustainable business, and the ability to deliver on customer’s expectations that the businesses they frequent impact minimally on our environment.
