Bin Trim Program – South East NSW

Rana Environmental and has received funding under the Business Advisory Services grants program to deliver the NSW EPA Bin Trim Program to businesses in South East NSW.

The Bin Trim Program involves providing businesses with customised waste assessments, indicating the potential for waste avoidance and recycling, a tailored action plan with waste and cost saving recommendations, as well as specialist support, advice and resources to help with implementation of the action plan. What’s more, participation in the Program is free.

Businesses that participate in the Bin Trim Program are also eligible to apply for financial assistance to install recycling equipment such as compactors, balers and other small scale on-site processing equipment. Successful applicants will receive funds to cover 50% of the capital cost of equipment, up to a maximum of $100,000.

Rana Environmental piloted the Program in the Illawarra in 2013, subsequently delivered Round 1, 2 and 3 of the Program, and is contracted to deliver Round 4 of the Program until August 2021.

This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the Waste Levy.
