The term “waste” doesn’t exactly conjure up connotations of sustainability and environmental consciousness, but fortunately there are ways to go green in your waste management. This is especially true for commercial projects and facilities which generate high levels of waste. Here is a brief look at how you can go green with your commercial waste management and how Western Elite can help make your commercial waste management more sustainable.
Look for ways to reduce waste.
Whether you run a hotel, casino, resort, or office building, the first step to going green with your commercial waste management is to minimize the amount of waste you generate in the first place. Even just a few small measures can go a long way when it comes to commercial waste. Ask the employees within your company what activities produce the most waste, and look for ways in which you can cut down on that waste.
Work with a waste collection company that is committed to sustainability.
Of course, minimizing waste can only take you so far, and those who deal with commercial waste understand more than anyone just how much waste commercial facilities can generate. If you deal with commercial waste and want to be more sustainable in waste disposal, it is vitally important to find a reputable waste collection company with a commitment to sustainability.
At Western Elite, for example, we offer both front load and roll off containers for commercial projects. Upon collection, we haul away the segregated recyclable material from the site and take it to our 393,000 square-foot site, which includes a material recovery facility. Then, at the material recovery facility, all recyclable material is removed. This minimizes the amount of waste that travels to a landfill, and it allows all recyclable materials to fill a need once again.
The best thing about going green with your commercial waste management is that it’s easy. Beyond establishing ways in which you as a company or facility can reduce the amount of waste you generate, going greener is really as simple as finding the right waste collection company to take care of your waste management needs.
