Organisational waste management system analysis
Analysing material flow processes, with a focus on the amount of waste generated on the output side, can make a significant contribution to reducing the environmental impacts of an organisation’s operations. The main objective of our study is to identify opportunities to maximise the reduction of waste generated. These reductions can be achieved in two aspects: firstly, by finding options for the efficient recovery of the waste generated and, secondly, by finding options to prevent its generation.
In order to know the source, quantity and quality of the waste generated as accurately as possible, it is necessary to monitor the waste generated on an ongoing basis. This can help to identify weaknesses in waste management, which can form the basis for more effective waste treatment. The work will be carried out in continuous consultation with the Client, resulting in an evaluation of the proposed options, taking into account the feasibility and priorities within the organisation.
The main steps of the work:
- Examination of the current situation
This involves an analysis of the current system of local waste collection, its tasks, actors and procedures.
- Proposing modification
Based on the results of the analysis and our experience over several decades, we will propose modifications to the on-site waste collection system.
The proposal for modification will include the necessary changes in tasks and procedures, as well as the identification of any necessary means.
- Summary report
Preparation of an executive summary of the work carried out, its results and recommendations.
