A waste audit is an assessment of an organization's waste generation practices. Its purpose is to identify the source and composition of waste materials, find opportunities for waste reduction, and determine the effectiveness of existing recycling programs.
The benefits of a waste audit include:
- Acquire additional information about the source and composition of waste
generated at your facility.
- Establish a baseline by which future waste reduction progress will be measured.
- Identify specific opportunities for waste reduction and cost savings.
- Improve your facility's image in terms of environmental awareness.
In addition to the above benefits, conducting an annual waste audit will ensure you are compliant with current environmental regulations.
