Reducing waste at work is not only the environmental thing to do – it also makes good economic sense. Often implementing a waste reduction strategy can reduce the amount of materials that companies pay to send to disposal, thereby reducing garbage disposal costs. Implementing a waste diversion program is mandatory for businesses that fall under the criteria of Regulation 102/94.
Although this regulation is specific to larger sized businesses, the standards that it requires can and should be followed by smaller businesses as well. Regardless of size, introducing a comprehensive waste diversion program can assist businesses in reducing their wastes and costs.
