Dear Colleagues,
 
As per attached flyer and information below we have a limited number of free Waste Assessments available.
This offer is across all of Victoria so local businesses need to act fast as we have limited numbers of audits available.
Businesses receive a free report detailing the findings from the assessment including cost saving, waste avoidance/minimisation recommendations.
 
Essentially we are seeking small to medium size businesses in the Accommodation, Food Services (restaurants & cafes etc) and Manufacturing industries to participate in a waste assessment and materials efficiency project. If the business generates approximately 240 litres of landfill waste per day and are willing to have a consultant conduct a waste assessment on site they will receive access to this as a free service.
 
Ideally, if you could please let your customers and contacts know about this offer ASAP I would be grateful.
FYI all the details are included in attached PDF and below email.
Or for further details please contact Liza Coventry on 8662 5147.
 
Thanks for your support.
 
Regards,
