Local small businesses in a number of industry sectors have found ways to save money through improving waste management practices as part of a program supported by Midwaste and Mid Coast Council. Businesses have also found ways to reduce labour and materials use, and have established cleaner and safer workplaces. Now resources are being made available to help other businesses gain the same benefits.

The Small Business Waste Reduction Toolkit presents a simple step by step process for site assessment and a review of opportunities, with easy to use templates and check-lists. Case studies show why it makes good business sense with examples of what can be achieved.

With waste disposal fees continuing to increase due to state and federal levies, businesses have a real opportunity to access some of the great new information and services available to reduce your costs.
