What makes Cascades Recovery+ so different?
We do not own landfills and we are not in the business of “waste management” we focus on Discarded Material Management.
What is Discarded Material Management (DMM)?
It’s a perspective change. It’s the ability to see all waste as a resource to the point you don’t see waste at all. All materials are discards and all discards have the ability to be collected, processed and returned as a resource in the supply chain. Referring to these materials as waste predetermines their destiny.
Shifting the mindset from “waste management” to Discarded Material Management will allow you to achieve the highest level of diversion since you are focused on recycling and not waste. It allows us to analyze products and packaging and ensure there is positive end of life design and challenge upstream producers where required. The 5 Step C.A.R.M.A process allows for us to understand what, where and how much is being discarded and the best way to collect those discards - reducing the financial impact of “waste” on your business.
Five steps C.A.R.M.A Process
- Minimize waste cost & increase diversion
- Understand the flow of discards
- Identify problematic materials adding to your “waste”
