Businesses throughout the country have implemented waste reduction programs and found that there are many benefits to be gained from such an approach to the management of resources. Reducing the amount of waste your business generates can help you:
When buying new equipment, look for equipment that will minimize both the amount of toxic materials used and the amount of waste produced.
Reassess the shop’s operations and waste handling practices periodically with an eye to avoiding the temptation of slipping back into old, more wasteful ways of doing things and to identifying additional waste reduction possibilities.
Publicize the firm’s commitment to waste reduction. Customers will feel good about doing business with a company that is environmentally responsible.
