Providers of recycling can promote their services on the website
A new website will help businesses, especially small to medium businesses, locate recycling, safe disposal and waste transport services across Australia.
The Business Recycling directory will also help providers of recycling and waste disposal services to promote their business.
Business Recycling is a partnership between Planet Ark, the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, which recognised the need for better information for businesses to access recycling services, and Pitney Bowes a company committed to educating its clients about waste minimisation.
Reducing business waste is important in New South Wales, where waste from the commercial, industrial, construction and demolition sectors makes up 68 per cent of the waste going to landfill.
Given the fact there are 670,000 small businesses in NSW (employing 96 per cent of all workers); the amount of business waste produced every single day is staggering.
Businesses can locate services that will re-use their waste products
"This is a unique opportunity for recycling service providers to promote their business to a key market," says Brad Gray, campaigns manager at Planet Ark.
"We encourage all re-use, recycling, waste disposal and waste transport companies to take advantage of this free promotion and list their services on Business Recycling."
Companies can add their details to the site simply by filling in the on-line registration form. "It is free for recyclers to list their services and all listings can be made directly onto the site," says Gray. "Business recycling is about centralising information and making it easier for businesses to find the solutions they need."
