Handybin cleans up award

HANDYBIN Waste Services has been recognised for outstanding productivity and energy savings through a NSW Government sustainability program.

The member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser said Handybin Waste Services was among 34 leading busineses and organisations recognised for saving $6.3 million annually.

The business was recognised with the coveted Sustainability Advantage Silver Partner status.

"State-wide, 630 organisations are saving $97 million through the program; their savings include more than 157,000 megawatt hours of electricity, almost 793,000 gigajoules of gas, 5,400 megalitres of water and more than 120,000 tonnes of waste a year," Environment Minister Robyn Parker said at an awards ceremony in Sydney on Monday.

"These businesses are realising a common goal - to do better by our environment and the business bottom line. They are to be congratulated and deserve to be recognised as Partners in the program for their improved environmental performance."

Business which participate in Sustainability Advantage and associated NSW programs have claimed more than $7 million of the $8 million, or 86 per cent, of funding made available from the recently announced AusIndustry Clean Technology Investment grants.
