Just a year ago, a study revealed that Australian businesses are falling behind the rest of the world when it comes to recycling. The study, conducted by the nation’s leading waste and recycling experts Business Waste, found that most companies are without a green policy and fail to separate their waste into recyclables and non-recyclables. Ultimately, this means that business waste is being sent straight to landfill.
Unfortunately, our poor track record when it comes to recycling is not through lack of infrastructure; it is simply a case of businesses not having the correct policies in place to dispose of their waste in an environmentally friendly manner.
And the number one material being improperly disposed of? Paper!
Business Waste’s research also revealed that some businesses are disposing of their waste at the household tip. It is indeed a dangerous habit to get into as businesses that do not adhere to their waste management duty of care are liable to pay hefty fines.
