New South Wales government environmental protection programs are in place with initiatives to provide free help and support to businesses. By educating businesses, government environmental protection initiatives help maximise recycling by diverting waste that would otherwise be abandoned to landfill. It also helps save time and money, while caring for our environment.

Roughly 70% of the things in a business’s general waste bin can be reused or recycled. From cardboard, paper, aluminium and plastic through to food waste – so much of this ends up in the general waste bin, when it could be repurposed, converted or recycled.

Minimising the amount of waste your business sends to landfill is not just good for the planet, it is commercially good for your business, helping to:

> Attract more customers by demonstrating your sustainability vision & values.
> Increase staff engagement and morale.
> Gain recognition for initiatives taken
> Reduce impact on the environment

95% of businesses that have added a recycling service are diverting more waste, improving productivity and efficiency. Are you ready to join them?

Green Industries South Australia. Increasing and maintaining the capacity of South Australia’s recycling systems and reprocessing infrastructure is a key priority for Green Industries SA.

The waste management and resource recovery industry is a major player in South Australia’s economy with approximately 4,800 people employed. For every 10,000 tonnes of waste recycled there are 9.2 full time jobs created compared to 2.8 jobs when sent to landfill.

More than 50 local companies reprocess paper, metal, glass, plastics, concrete, asphalt, timber, electronic waste and organics with Green Industries SA stimulating the industry’s development through REAP Grants.

South Australia’s leadership in innovative practices and reforms in waste management, recycling and resource recovery means that is in a good position to ensure resources circulate more, as evidenced by the well-developed reprocessing industry.

The transition to a Circular Economy needs innovation, along with investment and development of new infrastructure and technology, to enhance resource efficiency and create business opportunities both locally and overseas. As Australia is beginning to think ‘circular’ there is much that can be learned from South Australia’s experiences and practices.
