How New Businesses Can Improve Their Waste Management

Many new business owners underestimate the importance of their waste management and recycling strategy. Your strategy will dictate how your business produces and deals with waste, ultimately predicting its environmental sustainability — and public perception. It will also cost you money.

With better habits and strategies in place, a new business can save money, increase its efficiency, and improve its environmental friendliness simultaneously.

The Importance of Waste Auditing

The most important step you can take is conducting a waste audit. Working with a professional waste auditor, you’ll take a deep dive into your waste management and recycling habits, evaluating your waste management practices, existing contracts, and plans for the future.

Through an independent waste audit, you’ll discover the ways you’re overspending on waste management. Likewise, you’ll identify opportunities for savings. Depending on what you find and how you apply those insights, you may be able to reduce your overall waste spending by 35 to 40 percent.
