The truth about Business Waste in Australia (and why a skip bin is the answer!)

Small to medium-sized businesses send more than 6.5 million tonnes of business waste to landfills every year. While recycling of business waste does take place to an extent, every business owner needs to understand the importance of recycling waste.

At 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we’re in the business of removing commercial waste in an environmentally friendly manner. Therefore, we like to keep our finger on the pulse of all the latest reports and studies surrounding waste in Australia. Recently, I came across a report published by Planet Ark, which offers some great insights on business waste in Australia.

In this post, I will be sharing a brief summary of the findings of this report. So, continue reading to discover the truth about business waste in our country. I’m sure that after reading through, you’ll consider environmentally friendly processing of your business waste; such as hiring one of our skip bins to better manage your waste.

The current state of business waste in Australia

It is estimated that almost 76% of Australian businesses treat waste removal with a lot of importance. Many companies believe that good waste management will improve the public perception of their company. This is somewhat true, given that companies who sign the green mandate find it easier to recruit and retain talent. It also promotes efficiency, reduces costs and of course, minimises waste from being dumped into landfills.

Unfortunately, most businesses still view waste removal as a fixed operating cost which cannot be reduced. To make things worse, some businesses also perceive recycling to be more expensive than improper waste disposal, even when it isn’t true.

One third of Australian SMEs have also stated that they lack the knowledge to improve their waste management. In fact, many have no record of how much waste they produce and how to treat it.

If you’re one such business owner, then let me tell you that skip bins are the answer. Hiring a skip bin makes business waste disposal incredibly easy, efficient and affordable. Most importantly, your waste will always be taken for proper disposal.

It may seem like some businesses still don’t take waste management seriously. But, 14% of SMEs have stated that they are planning to implement a recycling and waste management policy within one year.
