Planning an effective commercial waste disposal strategy

In this day and age businesses need to be environmentally conscious. Doing so has a number of benefits which will help to save money, create new opportunities and improve the environmental footprint of the business. By incorporating an ethos of recycling, reuse and recovery in a waste management plan will help the business benefit in several ways.

One of the first steps in the process of implementing an efficient waste management plan is to conduct a thorough waste audit in order to identify areas of your business that are working efficiently, and those which are not and need improving upon. By identifying areas for improvement and implementing the appropriate processes to limit this wastage you will be able to manage your waste streams more effectively.



One of the best ways to avoid wastage is to reuse where possible. This can easily be achieved no matter what industry sector you in by cleaning, checking, repairing and refurbishment. This will ensure waste items are reused within the business where possible. This can be something as simple as reusing waste photocopied paper in the printer for non official purposes or reusing food containers for storage.

Recycle and Recover

In a commercial waste management plan after reuse the next stage will be to recycle and recover where possible, but you will need to make sure you do so inline with the appropriate directives. For example electrical businesses need to make sure they meet criteria set out in the WEE Directive. Businesses also need to think about whether the waste they produce can be recycled in other ways in order to turn them into valuable energy resources. With advances in recycling technology it is now possible to turn waste such as food into energy through processes such as anaerobic digestion or combustion.

Waste disposal

Once you have thoroughly taken all your other options into account, then the final stage available to you is waste disposal. In doing so you will need to be sure your waste disposal is carried out under the latest UK and EU legislation guidelines.
