There are a number of programmes and resources available to assist businesses with reducing waste and being more environmentally friendly.
A waste audit is the best way to measure how much waste your company generates; what it’s composed of; and how much could be reduced, reused or diverted by recycling. You can do a visual audit or a ‘sort and weigh’ audit.
We also offer waste audits to institutions and households who want to get their waste sorted. Audits show you how much of what you send to landfill could have been recycled or composted. It involves collecting, weighing and sorting a full day’s waste.
Adopting cleaner production principles enables businesses to be resource efficient and minimise waste. This helps your business’ bottom line and the environment too. Taking action to minimise waste will also help ensure you’re doing what consumers want.
