Recycling Services: Some Great Resources To Help You Recycle or Freecycle!
Recycling Services: At waster.com.au – we are always seeking to help customers reduce their waste bill by recycling more. In Sydney – where the landfill levy is so expensive – recycling is nearly always a great way to save money for your business. Of course, this can also be appropriate for households also – who seek to get rid of some rubbish but do the right thing by the environment.
For example, one of the most common calls we receive at Waster is when households have cardboard boxes they need to have removed – i.e. after a house move or if they have bought some large items such as lots of furniture. In this case – the easiest way to get rid of the cardboard is to take it to a council waste site (who will nearly always take the cardboard for free).
Waster provides all bin collections and recycling services to small and medium Australian companies. You can arrange all your waste bins and recycling services such as cardboard, commingled recycling (bottles and cans) etc through our website and enjoy leading customer service.
