Waste Prevention & Diversion
Maximizing diversion, conversion and reuse are the keys to creating a sustainable environment. Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. Waste diversion programs implemented by businesses aim to reduce the amount of recyclable material being thrown away and ultimately wasted by disposal in the landfills.
Although many company’s may already have recycling programs to some degree, our experience has been that there is many times more uncounted recycling that could occur. The financial benefits of an effective waste diversion program are undeniable.
Our proven ingenuity for people and planet helps protect your profits! The result is our ability to provide solutions that not only convert biodegradable waste into valuable resources quickly, but provide significant labor savings, decrease disposal costs, and may even decrease your regulatory compliance burden.
Three Part Programs:
- Increase Waste Diversion
- Disposal Strategies
- Source Reduction (Substitution)
- Environmentally Preferable Purchasing
Businesses are the source of up to 75% of all landfill waste. Studies have shown that food scraps, food-soiled paper and yard trimmings make up nearly a third of that total.
These are rich materials for compost. Removing food waste from the waste stream significantly reduces the impact to landfills as well as waste hauling costs.
Benefits of Waste Diversion Programs:
- prevents pollution
- lower regulatory burden
- less costly than conventional methods of cleaning contaminated soil.
