NSW Government has recently announced round five of the Bin Trim Program, which Cool Planet are proudly part of.
‘Bin Trim’ is a business waste program aimed at avoiding, reusing, and reducing waste, as well as saving money and cutting carbon emissions. It encourages innovation and collaboration across industry sectors, supply chains and precincts to address problem waste materials.
The project expansion includes $6 million in grants to be awarded to NSW businesses to help them reduce waste and cut emissions over the next year. This step to reaching Australia’s 2030 carbon reduction goals will:
• Divert ~35,000 tonnes of waste from landfills each year.
• Assist 4,000 SMEs across NSW to reduce their carbon output.
Cool Planet has been successful in becoming 1 of 14 projects awarded and will utilise their funding to educate more than 15,000 preschool children and engage 10,000 families on the importance and benefits of recycling and engage staff and families to participate.
As well as mentoring, Cool Planet will divert more than 1,000 tonnes of waste from 400 early childhood education services that include food, soft plastics, and nappies.
Overall, the program is part of the NSW Government’s Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy, which will invest $356 million over five years. Contact Cool Planet today and find out more on saving costs and the environment.
