Many companies simply rely on their waste service providers to manage their waste, but how do you develop your own strategy or understand your own waste plan if you are not familiar with your waste streams yourself? Understanding how to better manage your waste ultimately helps you increase efficiency of your operations, lowers your costs, and helps you divert even more materials from landfill.
Take the example of a Mississauga business – Robert Bosch Inc. They had a corporate zero waste policy, but needed a plan to achieve their waste goals. The first step they took to manage their waste was to understand it. They conducted their very first internal waste audit, with support from Partners in Project Green, and executed an employee waste engagement lunch & learn. They were able to involve staff to reduce contamination, and identify problematic materials that were being landfilled that could be diverted. Robert Bosch Inc. created a new diversion plan and increased their diversion significantly.
