As a result of recent climate-based changes, more and more companies are striving to become as environmentally conscious as possible.
A business can take as many steps as possible to strive towards being sustainable and having a positive effect on the environment, but these changes need to include effective waste management.
Here at E&E Waste, we have put together seven reasons waste management is key for business sustainability, and why you need to put it at the heart of your company.
1. Keep Unsustainable Companies Accountable
The first step that your company can take towards using waste management for sustainable purposes is by making good decisions with your commercial partners. For example, paying an unsustainable landfill business to pollute the land they own is only going to encourage that behaviour.
Instead, you can pay a sustainable waste removal company to do the work for you, and vote with your wallets.
2. Long Term Pollutants
In almost every batch of waste you remove, you’ll almost certainly have a high quantity of plastics. Plastics can take hundreds of years to decompose, so taking plastic waste to a recycling facility will save the environment from centuries of plastic waste.
3. Limit Toxic Waste
A lot of the waste that we put into the environment can be highly toxic. From printer ink cartridges to some of the metals in electronic devices, this waste entering the environment can severely harm wildlife. By limiting this you play a part in protecting the world around you.
4. Reduce Landfill Gases
In addition to the objects in landfills decomposing, landfill sites often emit a range of extremely harmful gases. These include methane and carbon dioxide, which can lead to significant health hazards for people and the environment alike.
5. Identify Your Biggest Pollutant
For the vast majority of companies, waste management is your main pollutant. In all likelihood you’re not burning through too much energy or fossil fuels, so you should expect to produce most of your waste through standard means. This makes it the easiest source through which you can boost sustainability for your business.
6. Use Developing Technologies
Many companies may not be aware, but there are plenty of opportunities to use developing technologies to improve your waste management.
With new ways of recycling waste, you should always be on the lookout for a company that can make the most of all of your waste with cutting-edge methods.
7. Include Your Employees
It’s simple to include your employees in waste management drives. It is a tangible thing that they can interact with and see a positive impact as your company progresses, which can have a visible environmental impact.
