Waste management could have a bigger impact on your business than you think…
Do you know what happens to your business’s waste once it’s been collected? Not many businesses do, and even less are businesses are interested in what happens to it.
It’s this way of thinking that can result in your business’s negative environmental impact and can also mean that you’re not getting good value for money with your waste management services.
But as the waste producer, your business is legally required to know where your waste is going as part of your Duty of Care. So if you are aware of where your waste is going, why not go that extra step further to ensure that it’s not going to landfill?
We’re going to show you why by highlighting these 5 simple benefits that recycling can have for your business…
1. Minimise your environmental impact
Choosing a waste service company that promises to divert your waste from landfill will effectively reduce your environmental impact. With more of your waste being recycled/reused, this also means your business is contributing towards a circular economy by extracting the most value from your materials.
2. Save your business money
Yes, that’s right – recycling waste can help your business to save money. As landfill tax continues to rise, diverting waste from landfill offers a much more cost-effective solution for your business.
3. Your business’s reputation
If your business is going green, it’s something to be proud of, which is why many businesses like to showcase their sustainability. This is because having a green solution in place for your business waste shows that you care about your social and environmental impact. This can help your business earn respect from customers and the general public.
4. A competitive edge
Promoting your business as being sustainable and environmentally conscious can help give you a competitive edge over your competitors.
Having that environmental aspect to your brand can increase your business’s credibility, as well as improving the desirability of your product/service to people who are equally environmentally conscious.
5. Peace of mind
Committing to sustainable waste management can actually help to give you a clearer vision on what your business needs to do, such as segregating waste onsite or speaking with your waste service provider on how you can encourage more waste to be recycled.
The bonus of having a waste service provider that you can trust is you can be confident your waste is being handled effectively and sustainably. This means you can stop worrying about waste and focus on what really matters – running your business.
