Doing Your Thing to Reduce Waste

Reducing Business Waste

Reducing your business waste is usually easy to initiate and will usually cost little to do.  Doing your thing to reduce waste means understanding how your business operates and studying the processes in which you do business.   Looking for more efficient procedures, processes and products.

Improving waste management generally reduces the costs incurred when dealing with waste.

Reduce Waste, Be More Efficient, Reuse and Recycle

To begin to reduce the amount of waste produced by your business you will need to ask yourself five key questions:

  1. Can you improve the efficiency of your production processes to eliminate or prevent waste?
  2. Can you reduce or limit the amount of waste produced in your business process and support areas?
  3. Can any of the waste products be reused?
  4. Can any of the waste products be recycled?
  5. Can you dispose your waste in a more environmentally friendly manner?

Doing Your Thing to Reduce Waste

Reducing waste at all stages of production will result in less waste to landfill and consequently a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions due to the decomposition of waste.

Producing less waste will also result in reduced costs associated with storing and transporting waste.

Reduce ~ Reuse ~ Recycle !
