Avoiding Waste Contamination
Contamination is the single biggest problem you are likely to face with waste disposal on your site.
The cost impact of contaminated waste may currently be hidden from your view. Understanding how contamination affects your waste costs is the key to discovering a better approach to waste management. Enviro-Waste will help you solve this rapidly and professionally.
With a series of improvements that Enviro-Waste will help you rapidly implement, you can dramatically reduce those costs while increasing operational efficiency and improving your organization’s green credentials.
Why is contamination such an important issue to investigate?
A failure to separate different kinds of waste means that you:
- pay more to get rid of it,
- lack visibility on exactly what waste you are producing,
- and continue to pollute the environment instead of being part of the solution.
Food waste is the most common culprit: just a bag or two of food waste thrown into mixed recyclables renders the entire binload as nothing but… well… rubbish!
Contact Enviro-Waste to discuss your current waste management, and let us devise a de-contaminated, organized Waste Management Program that restores your green credentials!
Legislation and landfill
When your waste is contaminated it is less likely to be separated properly and find its way to proper recycling. The British government is increasingly pushing stronger legislation to encourage the “circular economy” and flagship property groups, large hotel chains, and catering groups are first in line for scrutiny of environmental credentials.
Soon, contaminated waste will be even more expensive to dispose of.
Turning your site waste flows from essentially a polluting, disorganized problem into a best-practice recycling system is actually relatively fast.
The improvements in processes, training, and equipment that you need to put in place are largely common sense… once you know how. Enviro-Waste supports you throughout the improvement process, from advice and planning, through implementation, training, and ongoing process management.
From a liability to a valued commodity
Unsorted and contaminated waste is a liability, costing you money to take away, and risking harm to your reputation if untidy and overflowing bins and skips become an eyesore and cleanup problem on site.
In contrast, properly sorted waste at the point of disposal will provide a number of new revenue streams, as you have produced transportable categories of recyclables.
Instead of paying carriers to take away contaminated waste from your site, you could be receiving payments for selling recyclables. We sort this out for you including brokering fair prices in the market for your outgoing recyclables.
