Wasted Resources = Wasted Money
Taking measures to address solid waste generated by an organization reflects environmental financial responsibility. An Integrated Waste Management Plan provides organizations with a comprehensive map to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill by considering waste as a resource.
Organizations understand that wasting resources is the equivalent to wasting money and does not reflect Environmental Stewardship or allow an organization to meet its goals for Environmental Sustainability.
First Step = Waste Sort/Audit
The first step towards a comprehensive program to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill is a Waste Sort/Audit. A Waste Sort assesses current waste generation and makes recommendations to increase diversion from landfill.
A Waste Audit provides the following benchmark data:
Waste Generation Rate
Waste Disposal Rate
Current Diversion Rate
Estimated Participation Rate
Current Capture Rate for Programs Already Implemented
Benefits of a Waste Audit include:
Waste composition data ensures waste management plan will yield the “biggest bang for the buck” (addresses the largest components of the waste stream)
Allows municipalities/institutions to identify gaps in current diversion programs
Provides benchmark data to measure progress
