Waste management is an important issue for UK businesses and factories. Firms are under more pressure than ever before to reduce their environmental impact and save money at the same time.
Effective waste management is vital, regulations must be adhered to, and businesses should always dispose of hazardous and non-hazardous materials responsibly. Here we have a few tips for reducing waste disposal and collecting and moving rubbish.
If your company has a severe problem, it may be time to recruit an industrial waste management firm to analyse your business and adopt new strategies.
Industrial Waste Management
Improving your industrial waste management begins with monitoring your waste to know how much you are creating. With a little record-keeping, you can set targets and see if you achieve them. Don’t forget to monitor specific waste types and the departments where rubbish is generated because this can give you great insights as to where to get started.
A thorough review of your processes should also consider your recycling strategy. Are recyclable materials finding their way into the right bins, and do containers have signage to promote their use and indicate which is for plastic, paper, composting, and glass?
Where possible, your firm might choose to buy in bulk to reduce packaging. You can also investigate exchange opportunities with other businesses because what you see as rubbish might be a valuable resource for another company.
It is not just the shop floor where you can make an impact, though. You could consider switching from bottled water in your break room to drinking glasses, or you could find a bottled water supplier who uses reusable bottles.
