Waste audit

what's going in your bins?

It’s important to take a systematic approach to managing and reducing waste. A waste audit is the first step – once you understand the waste you’re creating, you can set reduction targets, monitor progress and evaluate your efforts. Concentrate on the biggest volumes of waste first, to have the biggest impact.
