GUIDELINES & TIPS | 5 DEC 2018 | Jacky Tee
 
  1. Understand your waste types
    • No matter which industry you’re running, waste management has been becoming the most frustrating operation part that cost you money and you don’t even know what you pay for every month. Understand your waste types of your business to determine whether there’s an opportunity to go recycling. Diverting waste into recycling is the smartest move to have a more cost-saving waste management. For general business, there’re food waste, paper, cardboards, aluminium and plastic bottles. These general recyclables always have the highest chance to get diverted from your general waste bin.


  2. Track and overview your sustainability effort
    • For every business that runs sustainability programs always has the urge to track how far they have made towards sustainability milestones. As a business owner, an overview of your sustainability result monthly is important to keep your diverting effort moving. At least, you know how much waste you’ve contributed to landfill or how much waste you’ve diverted from the landfill. Hence, these sustainability insights which purely generated from your business can be shared within your stakeholders like customers, investors, suppliers and shareholders.


  3. Multiple containers set up
    • You’re no longer to treat your bin as a general waste bin anymore after knowing what types of waste your business will be generating. Setting up multiple containers for general recycling may help your business diversion rate goes up, so you know how to separate your recycling into the right bin. Only those are not recyclables end up in your general waste bin. Labelling your bin containers into “Recycling” and “Landfill” might help workers or customers to identify which bin their waste supposed to go into.
