Our Four Best Tips for Corporate Waste Reduction

April 17, 2022 davidcrossan@googlemail.com Comments Off

Corporate and commercial waste can be a significant issue for a large number of firms. British law imposes a duty on businesses to
properly dispose of their garbage, and quite rightly so! However, this does not negate the fact that it is a source of frustration for many
supervisors. As the first choice for many organisations when it comes to disposing of commercial garbage (our customers include
Vodafone, United Utilities, and Forest Holidays), we felt it would be worthwhile to share our four best tips for dealing with commercial
waste.

1. Conduct preliminary research: How much money do you really need?

Prior to the stage of recruiting, it’s critical to pay attention to the statistics. Overordering materials is to blame for the annual waste of 60
million tonnes of building materials. For comparison, that weight is about equivalent to around 8,200 Eiffel Towers”quite a lot! To begin
reducing this waste, you’ll want to do a thorough analysis of the amount of raw materials you order each year and attempt to reduce it to
only what you need. This can entail building supplies for a construction merchant, yet paper is by far the largest similar expense for the
average office.

2. Consider Sustainability-Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

For the supplies you do order, you can save money (and help the environment) by reusing and recycling as much as possible before
hiring a skip. It almost always requires less energy to produce recycled materials than it does to produce “virgin” materials, which makes
them more affordable. Additionally, increasing the life of your present materials can help you save money in the long run by requiring you
to make new purchases less frequently.

3. Implement a Waste Prevention Program

Because achieving a goal is usually simpler when you work in a team, you may discover that implementing a dedicated waste reduction
programme will help you meet your sustainability and recycling goals far more quickly and with considerably less effort. You may wish to
assign distinct sustainability targets to different departments or to hire a waste management coordinator who can assist in identifying local
recyclers. Finally, fostering collaboration and communication within your team is critical to the success of any programme.

4. Sort and organise your waste and materials

This is a step that should be included in your waste reduction programme, but it is so critical that we felt it was worth emphasising.
Businesses of all sizes and types are equally guilty of untidy storage. To begin with, this is potentially harmful, as dangerously stored
things are liable to injure someone who is unprepared to deal with them. Even if an employee escapes injury, it is possible for materials to
be damaged, and if the damage is severe enough to demand their disposal, this is a classic case of avoidable waste! Weather is rarely
helpful in these situations either”rain may readily destroy wood and paper, for example.

Creating a separate, flat-level storage room for palletized merchandise and an off-ground, covered storage area for plasterboard, lumber,
and similar materials can protect them from damage, saving you money while also ensuring the safety of your staff. (We discussed how to
appropriately preserve things in greater depth in a few previous blog postings.)
