Waste Audits and Reduction Work Plans

Hazardous Waste AuditWaste Audits are performed to track the types and quantities of wastes being generated at a facility by building occupants, or during construction, renovation or demolition projects. They can be detailed, with data on specific functional areas, or generalized for an entire building or group of buildings.

Based on the findings of the Waste Audit (actual daily or weekly measurement of the quantity of each type of waste produced), a Waste Reduction Work Plan can be prepared to identify and evaluate waste reduction opportunities. Waste reduction opportunities consider the 3Rs hierarchy: Reduction; Reuse; then Recycling.

Waste Reduction Work PlansWaste audits (either hazardous or non-hazardous) and Waste Reduction Work Plans are typically performed for a variety of reasons:

  • Regulatory requirements (e.g. Ontario)
  • Environmental best practice in accordance with government recommendations
  • To meet components of ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems or the LEED Green Building Rating System™
  • To save money through waste minimization

 

Regardless of whether your facility is in a jurisdiction that mandates waste audits, it is good business practice to carry out a periodic Waste Audit and Waste Reduction Work Plan.
