Recycling and waste initiatives on the Central Coast will receive more than $600,000 from the Bin Trim program, funded under the NSW Government’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said Mil Tek Waste Solutions, WildBlueGlobal Consulting and WastePro would share in the funding.
“These three organisations will work with local businesses to help them increase their levels of recycling and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill,” Mr Crouch said.
“Mil Tek Waste Solutions is receiving $300,000 to work with businesses and help them achieve 15 per cent diversion from landfill.
“WildBlueGlobal Consulting will focus on the aged care, childcare and hospitality sectors with their grant of $258,790 from the NSW Government.
“Waste-Pro is receiving $134,652.50 to help businesses better recycle plastics, pallets, organics, and overflow paper and cardboard.
“These three organisations are all working towards a common goal of helping to reduce the 1.8 million tonnes of NSW business waste which currently goes to landfill.”
Jason Campbell from Mil-tek Waste Solutions said, “Whilst businesses continue to reinvent, restructure and push forward with the new normal, Mil-tek is working hard to support and implement the most cost-effective waste management solutions available.”
Elisabeth Blik from WildBlueGlobal Consulting said, “WildBlueGlobal was responsible for diverting over 16,000 tonnes of waste from the Central Coast in the last round of BinTrim funding. This new funding allows us to help businesses reduce costs and get back on their feet after COVID-19.”
Christian McLean from WastePro said, “WastePro is excited to be able to bring the benefits of the BinTrim program to Central Coast businesses, which include free professional advice on waste reduction savings and a boost in recycling.”
