Business Waste Management & Recycling

Many Australian businesses are becoming increasingly conscious of how their operations are affecting the environment. If you are looking to lower the carbon footprint of your business, adding a structured corporate waste management and recycling program to your Zippy cleaning services package will deliver you a number of benefits with ease.

BE REWARDED FOR RECYCLING

Your existing Client Services Manager will oversee the management of diverting your business’ waste from landfill by sorting it into recycling streams. This solution provides you with a two-fold benefit: the performance of your cleaning program is improved over the life of your contract, while your waste disposal costs are reduced.

We are managing the recycling needs for clients in the hospitality industry; retail spaces; entertainment precincts; healthcare premises including medical centres, doctors’ clinics, and hospitals; aged care facilities; schools; and government and council offices. Our services include the management of general waste, dry and co-mingled recycling; food and garden organic waste; bio-waste, pharmaceutical and medical waste; electronic waste; and confidential shredding.

RESOURCES REINVENTED

We believe that working with organisations to increase participation in recycling initiatives will achieve our goals of reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfill. Recycling just one tonne of new and uncoated printing and office paper spares four cubic metres of waste going to landfill. In addition, it saves around 24 trees, more than two barrels of oil, 41,000 kilowatt hours of electricity, and 31,870 litres of water from having to be used.

Recycling one tonne of glass saves more than the equivalent weight in raw materials, including sand, limestone, and soda ash, and cuts energy use by 30 per cent because crushed glass melts at a lower temperature. More than 800 kg of greenhouse gases are saved by recycling one tonne of steel cans. Aluminium cans made from recycled cans requires 95 per cent less energy than producing them new from raw bauxite.

RECYCLING MADE EASY

It is important for you and your staff to become familiar with how to sort your waste and dispose of it correctly, and we will provide full training and mentorship to help your understanding. In addition, we will arrange the delivery of easy to use waste systems to your organisation. Colour coded bins are installed that indicate the materials or waste products that can be disposed of in each container.

REPORTS HIGHLIGHT YOUR RECYCLING EFFORTS

As a customer of Zippy’s waste management and recycling program, you will be provided with comprehensive reports about your business’ recycling and waste data. This information helps organisations to determine how their commitment to recycling more of their waste has reduced their impact on the environment. The reports can be based on cost centre volumes, waste volumes and weights, waste types, recycling volumes, recycling types, and disposal costs, to ensure you are getting the full picture.

MAKING POSITIVE CHANGES

Waste management is now a science that enables us to work towards a cleaner, greener future. We are proud to help our clients to make positive changes to the state of the environment.

Call us today to talk about the materials that you are using in your business. We will conduct a free waste audit to determine the most effective way to achieve your recycling targets. Then, we will work with you to create a tailored solution to lower your waste to landfill along with your disposal costs.

Commercial Cleaning

We tailor our commercial cleaning services to a variety of industries across South Australia and the Northern Territory; including federal, state and local Government departments, health centres and aged care facilities, education facilities, corporate office buildings, and commercial properties, both big and small.
