Bin Trim Program - Waste solutions for a sustainable business

NSW businesses send more than 1.8 million tonnes of business waste to landfill each year. More than 70% of this could be reused or recycled.

Reducing waste sent to landfill has environmental and economic benefits for everyone.

The Bin Trim Program is the largest business recycling program of its type in Australia and is funded by the Environment Protection Authority NSW (EPA NSW). 

  • It has helped over 22,000 businesses in NSW diverted waste away from landfill and into recycling.
  • It provides free advice and support to the business to increase their recycling and reduce their waste to landfill.
  • Businesses with up to 400 employees (FTEs) are eligible to join the program.

ECCNSW was a grantee of the Bin Trim Round 1 and 2 and successfully completed the projects with great results in waste diversion for ‘hard to reach’ small businesses in Sydney, Newcastle and Central Coast in 9 different languages. 

In Round 3, ECCNSW delivers the Bin Trim program in Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Arabic, Hindi, Tamil and Korean. 

ECCNSW’s bilingual Bin Trim assessors can: 

  • Conduct free waste assessments and review the current waste management systems.
  • Provide a tailored action plan to reduce waste to landfill, increase recycling and potentially save money.
  • Provide support and follow up advice for a business to implement the action plans.
  • Help businesses access potential financial rebates for small scale recycling equipment.
