Waste Audit Mobile App

An effective waste reduction program must be based on current and accurate information on the quantity and composition of the waste stream. Therefore, the first step is a “waste audit,” a systematic procedure to review operations and subsequently, waste generation.

Performing a waste audit will define the composition of your discards by examining how materials enter and exit your facility. All operations produce waste and there is nothing shameful or wrong by recognizing it. However, today’s concern over waste generation and increasing costs of collection and disposal are good reasons to find out how to reduce waste, increase recycling, and try to cut costs. The waste audit process alone will not lead to waste reduction at your business. Rather, it is the starting point that will enable your business to make informed decisions on how to allocate resources for source reduction, waste management and recycling programs.
