The best way to reduce your general waste disposal costs and help the environment is to recycle. Recycling is good for your business and the environment.

General Waste items ie food, nappies, clothes, non-recyclable packaging (when mixed together) go to landfill. The waste levy imposed by the state government means increasing general waste disposal costs for your business. Good News! There is something you can do to prevent these rising levy costs:


Recycling is simple and involves separating your waste into different bins before it is collected by your waste provider or Council.  To ensure your waste is recovered and recycled correctly, you can talk to SUEZ Recycling & Recovery to see what bin sizes and collection services are available for your business.
