Here at Waste Sense, we encourage recycling and recovery where possible. But we also understand that this isn’t always an option, which is why we also cater to the general waste stream. General waste encompasses all the materials that can’t be recovered or recycled.
If your business has waste that requires collection and disposal, we’ll find the perfect service for you. Let us source best-practice solutions for your business.
Paper and cardboard products are produced from tree fibres and represent a large part of the overall waste stream. Most cardboard is produced from recycled paper and it can be recycled many times over.
If your business generates a lot of cardboard and paper waste, invest in a dedicated recycling bin to maximise landfill diversion. It’s good for the planet, it saves money on conventional waste disposal and gives unwanted materials a chance to be useful again.
Comingled waste is the most common recycling stream for households and businesses. Separating these items for recycling will enable you to contribute to the circular economy through landfill diversion.
At Waste Sense, we carefully work with our customers to assist you in choosing the right bin and service method to maximise your recycling potential. We’ll source the best recycling options, so you achieve the best cost and sustainability outcomes.
Many people don’t know where to take their unwanted electronics and IT assets, so they send them to the landfill. But these items often contain hazardous materials and should be recycled or disposed of properly to avoid environmental damage. With a Waste Sense e-waste solution, there’s no need to contribute your electronic waste in landfill.
We’re committed to diverting as much electronic waste from landfill as possible. Let us organise for the e-waste from your business to be collected and recycled or disposed of responsibly. From mobile phones and computers to televisions and power cables, we can make responsible disposal easy.
Document shredding is an important safeguard against data security breaches and intellectual property theft. Secure your confidential information with confidence by destroying all sensitive information with a high-security shredding solution from Waste Sense.
Our secure document collection and destruction service collects and disposes of any items containing confidential data. All confidential papers, records, contracts, files or sensitive printed materials will be securely collected from your premises, shredded and recycled.
Bathrooms are among the most visited places on business premises. A bathroom and sanitary waste solution from Waste Sense provides your business with a reliable service that’s designed to improve the washroom experience for your staff and your customers.
We can deliver washroom services for clients of all industries which are suitable for both large and small businesses. Our tailored approach helps us to understand the environment and what is most suitable for your washroom areas.
It’s extremely important that healthcare providers and medical practices handle their waste with great care. Medical and biohazard waste needs to be dealt with in a careful manner in order to minimise risk to public health or the environment. Waste Sense can make sure this happens.
We can help your medical business to find the right biohazard waste disposal solution that focuses on safety, compliance, and customer satisfaction. Let us create an integrated solution for the identification, collection, transportation, sterilisation or disposal of medical waste.
Like any plastic, polystyrene and foam waste doesn’t easily decompose. As a result, it can cause harm to our environment and the wildlife that may consume it. Unfortunately, it’s also not easy to recycle polystyrene and foam products using council waste collection. But with a polystyrene collection and recycling solution from Waste Sense, it’s simple.
If your business generates a large volume of polystyrene and foam waste, let the Waste Sense team help you find the right solution for responsible recycling and disposal.
Including a plastic waste collection and recycling service as part of your total waste solution is simple, cost-effective and helps your business to reduce its environmental impact. Waste Sense assists Australian businesses of all sizes to sort and recycle their soft plastics with care for the environment.
Want to do your part in reducing plastic waste? We can provide your business with services to recycle soft, flexible plastic types like plastic bags, pallet wrap and shrink wrap.
Wherever possible, wood and timber waste should be recovered from construction sites to be recycled. Recycling used timber can reduce your disposal costs and help to prevent unnecessary logging activity. Recycled timber can be used in a range of applications including construction and furniture making.
Waste Sense can deliver a collection and recycling solution for wood and timber waste in all shapes and sizes. We service all commercial and industrial sectors including transport, building trade suppliers, cabinetmakers, construction and demolition.
Organic waste, sometimes called food waste or green waste, makes up a large portion of collected residual waste. Despite this, it’s one of the least recycled waste streams in Australia. Organic waste management has the potential to divert a significant amount of waste from landfill with a positive impact on recycling.
Our flexible organic waste collection solutions can handle a great variety of inputs and are designed to produce a range of environmentally-friendly outputs.
We can provide a secure, confidential service that helps you to manage your business reputation while recovering as much resource as possible.
Glass is one of the most recyclable materials in the world, which means every piece of glass that goes to a landfill site represents a lost opportunity. Separating and recycling used glass bottles and jars provides an opportunity to process and use the glass locally. Once recycled, your glass waste can be used in road making, decreasing transport costs and emissions and providing local economic benefit.
Waste Sense can work with you to implement a cost-effective, environmentally sustainable solution for recycling your glass waste. We can also help you to minimise your volumes of glass waste, reducing not only the frequency of your waste collections but also your storage and collection costs.
Scrap metal and metal waste from building and renovation projects, car repairs, commercial operations and other applications shouldn’t just be thrown away with your general waste to end up at a landfill site. Metal is a valuable resource that can be recycled and turned into something new.
Does your business have bulky scrap metal that you need to get rid of, but you don’t know how to get it to a recycling centre? Let Waste Sense source a provider to collect and recycle your materials without hassle.
No hazardous waste is too much of a challenge for us at Waste Sense, and this includes liquid waste such as grease and oil. Most liquid waste streams are perfect candidates for resource recovery as they can be transformed into new materials and commodities after treatment.
We can make managing your waste easy by combining liquid waste removal into a single contract with your other waste and recycling services. But liquid waste management goes beyond collection and recycling. We can also help your business identify and implement systems to reuse your waste before collection and processing.
Prescribed Industrial Wastes (PIW) are specific chemical, hazardous or dangerous wastes that according to the law must be handled and disposed of in specific ways.
Waste Sense can work with you to implement a cost-effective, environmentally sustainable solution for disposal of prescribed waste. We can also help you to minimise your volumes of prescribed waste, reducing not only the frequency of collections but also your storage and collection costs.
