Commercial Waste Management Strategy Tips

Recycling Program

Proper planning is essential for any business that wants to survive and thrive in this economy. It’s a good idea to develop a business waste management plan. Working with commercial waste management consultants can help you come up with the right plan to run more efficiently, save money, and be environmentally-friendly, too. 

Be Proactive

Is your business proactive when it comes to dealing with the waste you produce and how you manage it? Or has waste management been ignored? Sadly, many businesses neglect this issue and end up paying more money than they should to deal with more waste than they should ever have! 

Formulate Goals

Why not start with writing down some goals regarding how you want to change? How much waste does your business currently produce? Make an estimate and take note of what kind of things are getting thrown out, and in what quantities. It could be as simple as examining waste bins, recording their size and how full they are. 

3 R’s

Who is in charge of dealing with your waste? Could more recycling be done? Can some items be sold as scrap to make money from waste? Perhaps. “Reduce, reuse and recycle” are keywords to consider. You can also consider “recover,” whereas you have extra stuff that can be recovered and sold! There’s also energy recovery– what if heat generated from manufacturing processes was recovered and used to, say, heat the building? 

Come up with some goals on your own, and if you need help, hire commercial waste management consultants. Analyze options. Consider new contacts and new contracts. Set some goals and see if you can achieve them within a certain timeframe.  Dealing with waste in a smart way can actually help a business be more profitable. It just takes some time, energy and focus to figure out better ways to deal with waste. And having a waste management plan in place always helps.
