Does your company generate entirely too much waste? Unfortunately, there’s a good chance that you don’t even know the answer to that question. There are far too many companies out there that don’t audit the amount of waste that they generate on a daily basis, and as a result, they end up generating way more than they should. By simply keeping tabs on how much waste you’re generating and figuring out ways to eliminate some of it, you can reduce waste overall at your company. Here are some other ways you can do it.
Encourage employees to go paperless whenever possible.
Are your employees still printing out all of the important paperwork that they need? If so, ask why they’re doing it. Smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers have made it easier than ever to access whatever paperwork they need without printing it out. By simply cutting back on the amount of stuff that your company prints out, you can significantly cut down on the waste your company generates.
Ban water bottles from your business.
Most people try to drink as much water as they can these days, but that doesn’t mean they need to do it by drinking water bottles. If you haven’t already done this, you should consider installing water dispensers in your business and then providing your employees with reusable water canteens that they can use everyday. It will take an initial investment on your part, but it will save you a lot of money in waste management costs in the long run.
Cut down on the amount of packaging that you use.
If your business uses cardboard boxes, pallets, and other types of packaging on a regular basis, you should consider finding ways to eliminate some of the packaging. You should also figure out ways to reuse packaging. By using cardboard boxes more than once and fixing damaged pallets before putting them back into circulation, you can eliminate the need to throw these items away.
