Summary

Transpacific purchased the business and assets of One Stop Garbage Shop Pty Ltd.

Market definition

Relevant markets for the purpose of this competition assessment were the supply of commercial bins in Victoria and for the supply of plastic bins in Australia.

Competition analysis

On 29 April 2008 the ACCC formed the view that the acquisition was unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the relevant markets. Factors informing this view included:
- the availability of supply from WasteTech, KS Environmental, Sulo and other competing suppliers of commercial bins; and
- the availability of supply of plastic bins including wheelibins from domestic and overseas sources such as Sulo, Nylex and Mastec.
Accordingly, the ACCC decided not to oppose the acquisition.
