A Waste Audit is a snapshot of your building or office’s waste streams (trash, recyclables, and organics). We sort through your waste, then create a report that breaks down:
Contamination of recyclables
Missed recycling opportunities
Potential for composting
Suggestions for waste reduction and diversion
Why Should You Do a Waste Audit?
A waste audit will allow us to determine where your business is succeeding in their waste reduction efforts and where there are opportunities for improvement. We use this information to create a customized plan to help your business set goals, implement changes, and track progress.
We offer three levels of waste audits:
We provide notes, photographs, and suggestions; we do not sort and weigh the bags.
Representative Sample Audit
We sort and weigh as many bags as possible in a given time period, providing notes, photographs, and suggestions based on that information.
We sort and weigh every bag of waste present; the report can be used for LEED or TRUE accreditation.
We take health and safety precautions seriously. Waste auditors wear PPE including goggles, masks, puncture-proof gloves, and coveralls to mitigate risk.
