Conduct your own waste audit.
Not only will a waste audit help you gain a better understanding of where your organization currently is in terms of waste management, but it will also help you clearly see opportunities for efficiencies and improvements – both for the environment and your bottom line.
The audit involves collecting, measuring and monitoring all waste for three consecutive days as well as taking a look at other practices such as waste hauling schedules and bin placement. The information gathered will help determine your current diversion rate and identify areas for improvement. You’ll find everything you need to conduct your waste audit in the following PDF, and of course, if you have any questions, we’re always happy to help.
