What Is a Total Waste Program?

Most businesses have the best of intentions in their efforts to recycle and conserve, but many fail to follow through because there is no specific person empowered to instill a culture of recycling and waste management. An internally driven campaign will only be as effective as the initiative is valued from leadership and someone who is empowered and passionate about carrying the banner.

By using a professional environmental service company you can achieve your vision for recycling, effective and efficient waste removal, and achieve significant savings in the long run. You also free your people to do what your company does best whether it be manufacturing, consulting, sales, or providing services.

A strong professional environmental service company will customize a plan that is specifically tailored to your unique waste and recycling needs instead of forcing you to pick a prearranged package. By receiving a professional environmental and waste analysis you can relax and leave the heavy lifting to the pros.

How does it work? A highly-trained analyst performs an on-site Waste Analysis Study. The analyst will talk with management and production staff to examine and analyze your waste stream and determine their source of content. This helps provide the provider with a total picture of your operations so they can develop a plan. In addition to the analysis and customized plan the best providers also deliver on-site training for the management and production staff so everyone understands the new waste management system.

The analysis will also include any hazmat streams and include plans for its removal. Sustainability and a commitment to preservation, conservation and the environment should be a priority of any environmental service provider. A certified provider will also be current and certified on all EPA regulations as well as state and local laws/permits regarding waste management. Making sure you are legally compliant should be a benchmark of the provider’s services including their own operation and services.
