01 - Understanding your current waste management process
One thing we have learnt over the years is that the status quo must be challenged; your current program may be working but could it be better? Could it be wasting less and saving you more?
Our Cascades Recovery+ environmental consultants come into play to challenge the current program. Do you know the answers to the following questions about your current program?
- What is being generated?
- Where is it being generated?
- How much is being generated?
Only once these questions are answered can you maximize your sustainability efforts. Our team answers these questions for you to eliminate key gaps in your current program, which will have significant impacts on overall waste costs and diversion.
