What is a waste management audit and how does it work?

Blog from a guest contributor from SUEZ recycling and recovery UK

How well do you understand your business’s waste streams? How much waste do you produce? What percentage is recyclable? Could you reduce your waste further? Chances are, there are areas in your waste streams where you can improve efficiency, minimise waste and save money. And it all starts with a waste management audit.

A waste management audit will help to identify the types of waste and amount of waste your business generates. It’ll also examine the effectiveness of current waste management strategies and identify areas where general waste sent to landfill can be reduced and recycling increased.

For many small businesses, completing a waste audit can seem like a daunting prospect. It takes time, knowledge and objectivity, so we’d recommend engaging a specialist waste management company like SUEZ recycling and recovery UK.
