Increase Recycling without Increasing Costs - Cost of Waste Disposal
Most people are beginning to recognise the benefits that recycling has for our planet and many businesses are now looking for a longer term sustainable waste solution that helps to minimise their carbon footprint and helps keep our planet green. But when it comes to business recycling, many companies worry that the cost of waste disposal will make it hard to increase their recycling efforts without increasing costs. However, it does pay to run an environmentally friendly business.
Running a business recycling programme not only helps your workplace to reduce the impact on our environment but it helps to save you money too. In fact, an environmentally friendly business will become more efficient and have lower operational costs – all the while protecting New Zealand’s environment for future years to come. The reality is, that the decisions we make right now have long-term effects on our earth in the future. Read about the government’s environmental priorities for New Zealand in the next 20 years here.
Green Business, Greener Pastures
If your company is looking to increase business recycling while still keeping the cost of waste disposal to a minimum, here are three initial points that we recommend to get you started on a greener path:
The key to creating a sustainable and efficient waste solution within your business is to change your attitude towards waste. Learn to view waste as a commodity and a resource, rather than rubbish. This ethos should be led from the top and filter down through departments - not only to those producing the waste but also to those involved in procurement and supply, it is often easier to reduce waste packaging at procurment than recycle.
When creating a sustainable waste solution for business recycling, it’s also important to look at ‘value.’ The cost of waste disposal is often measured in dollars, money-saving exercises are made on ‘like for like’ products that often don’t take innovation or value into account. In essence, short-term savings can actually be detrimental to maintaining a creative and efficient waste solution in the long-term. We find that businesses who are prepared to embrace a fresh approach to recycling and sustainabilty benefit greater from smarter and more sustainable waste management.
Have a clear objective of what your business is hoping to achieve with your recycling efforts and reducing packaging. Creating timescales and ways to measure your success means that you and your staff have benchmarks to work towards and it helps you and your team push on to achieve meaningful results.
