Boosting Your Profits by reducing waste management costs

As we do not own landfills, we have no incentive to minimise your recycling and hence boost our profits. We align our goals with yours. We want you to reduce your costs and boost your recycling percentage.


What does a smart business owner need to know about Gold Coast commercial bin collections in 2020?

Whilst the fundamentals of bin collection do not change hugely year to year, there have been some big changes in waste management in Queensland since 2019 that you should be aware of!


The first thing to be aware of is that the Queensland Government reintroduced a waste levy – i.e. an extra fee for dumping general waste at a landfill. As of February 2024 (when this blog is being written) – the landfill disposal levy in Queensland is $105 per tonne.


Whilst this levy is certainly less than in NSW, it is a real and significant increase in costs for Gold Coast-based businesses.


Check out our video below, covering some of the main issues relating to the landfill levy implementation.

Note that the levy is expected to rise every year. For this reason, recycling is the best method of ensuring your waste management costs stay reasonable over time.


Let us also discuss three simple tips on saving money on your waste services.


Arrange flexible services with no lock-in contract

If you arrange you required waste management services on a flexible 30-day agreement (you could describe it as “pay as you go” – you are only committed to a 30 day notice period). You thus protect yourself against being locked into a long term, exclusive contract that does not suit your needs.


Of course, a business can be a very different entity in a year or two years time. By signing up to a flexible agreement, you also do not have to worry about rollover clauses or automatic renewal clauses – that are common in standard waste services contracts from other suppliers.


Check out the detail on Waster’s pricing inclusions and flexible terms and conditions here.


Do not pay additional fees for commercial waste removal Gold Coast services

Cutting costs is vital when it does not impinge on the quality of service. Waster does not charge unexpected or hidden fees. This includes fees such as site fees, environmental fees, rental fees or any other additional charge. With Waster, when you sign up for a bin collection service (or dumpster services as some people say), say a weekly collection of an 1100 litre General Waste bin, you simply pay 4 times (or 5 if it is a five-week month) at the end of the month. You can also pay by direct debit or on an invoice.


You never pay more than you had budgeted for and you do not need to worry about the small print in our agreement. Although, of course, you should still read it!


Consolidate all your services under one supplier and save

As Waster can offer all your waste and recycling services, you should consider consolidating them under one supplier: namely us! (that may be a bit biased). When all your services are consolidated through Waster, you will receive one invoice at the end of the month and enjoy flexible agreements from all your services.

Did you know that some parts of the Gold Coast region are “closed shires”?

So first things first, what exactly is a closed shire when it comes to waste management Gold Coast bin hire?


In some areas of the Gold Coast – such as Broadbeach, for example – only one permitted company provides commercial waste and recycling services to local businesses.


The local council has made an arrangement with a waste management provider. Now, only that allowed company services businesses in that area.

One contender for the gold medal: Gold Coast rubbish removal

When we ask “what can be recycled?“, the answer is more and more each day and partly that is due to people making constant improvements such as the Dutchman Boyan Slat.


Boyan has been awarded numerous prizes and awards for his innovative methods aimed at cleaning up our oceans.


“Taking care of the world’s ocean garbage problem is one of the largest environmental challenges mankind faces today,” Slat stated in a blog post. “Not only will this first cleanup array contribute to cleaner waters and coasts but it simultaneously is an essential step towards our goal of cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This deployment will enable us to study the system’s efficiency and durability over time.”


He founded “The Ocean Cleanup” when he was 17, aiming to clean up the world’s oceans. He has raised c.$15m in funding to date for the organisation.


If you want some hope in the future and gain confidence that we can overcome major issues with ingenuity and application, check out the TEDx given by Boyan on the topic below:
