Charitable Recycling Australia congratulates Bingo Industries which has been selected as the successful tenderer for the ‘AU-980521 – Multi-site Waste Collection, Recycling and Disposal Contract for Charitable Recycling Organisations’.

The key driver of this tender was for the launch and implementation of Weight Based Billing for charitable recycling organisations in New South Wales. This ground-breaking initiative could not have been possible without the vision and work of MRA Consulting, nor the funding and support of the NSW EPA/DPIE over what has been a two year project. Huge thanks to both organisations.

What makes Weight Based Billing so innovative, is the transparency and accountability of costs linked directly to weight of waste to landfill, that provides a direct lever for waste reduction, delivers cost efficiency and savings for charitable organisations, and the opportunity to access the NSW Community Service Exemption through a contractor providing the required reporting protocols.

This promises to be an important step and indicator of the future of waste collections for our sector.
