waste: an opportunity

A key challenge for waste handling is physically managing different types (streams) of waste, on-site storage receptacles, on-site treatment equipment, and waste removal. Other challenges include documentation, data capture and reporting, and driving positive behaviour around waste management practices. Whatever your challenges, we can help. 

Our waste services, data capture and reporting help you meet your legislative responsibilities, minimise waste transfer costs, and maximise recycling opportunities – in particular, reducing contamination, the biggest barrier to waste stream management. 

The environmental impact of how we use and dispose of resources is crucial. We advocate moving to a circular economy (internally and externally) that uses resources for as long as possible, extracts the most value from them, and then recovers and re-uses products and materials at the end of their service life.  

Developing a waste strategy 

The increasing legislative burden on waste treatment costs means every facility needs to have a waste management strategy, based on the “waste hierarchy”, that maximises sustainability and corporate social responsibility.  

We look to accommodate the physical limitations of facilities, particularly around storage space, which directly impacts how often waste is collected and its associated costs. We also account for specific customer sustainability strategies, plans, and objectives. 

Typical commercial waste management objectives include: 

  • Waste audit-led strategy 
  • Zero waste to landfill or incineration 
  • General waste control and reduction 
  • Cardboard and paper reclamation 
  • Maximising dry, mixed recyclables and/or discrete waste streams (eg glass and paper) 
  • Minimising transport costs 
  • Communicating with and educating occupiers 
  • Measuring waste stream volume at source 
  • Detailed reporting for governance and behavioural education. 

General waste is the most expensive waste stream to process, so moving to dry, mixed recyclables offers substantial cost savings. Separating waste into streams also offers opportunities to generate income. Cardboard, paper and glass are the most common, but research and development in recycling plastic waste is rapidly maturing.
