Importance & Benefits of Recycling to Your Business

People’s positive perception of recycling has been growing over the past few years. Household owners have never been more committed to recycling their wastes on a daily basis. However, many businesses fail to acknowledge the importance of regular waste recycling and ignore their needs.  Proper waste management, which includes recycling, plays a massive role in keeping our business, clients, and the community safe. This could also help companies to maximize the length of time using their resources, thus saving them money spent on those resources.   The safe and ethical disposal of waste also provides a long-lasting environmental impact. A healthy community and surroundings, on the other hand, can equate to a healthy business. More than ever, now is the time that companies should take waste recycling seriously. By making use of every piece of resources, you can do and achieve more in your business.  How Commercial Recycling Can Benefit Your Business  If you are looking for ways to cut waste costs, recycling your waste is one of the best ways. Many companies resort to cutting staff off to save on business expenses. But cutting on wastage, which is among the reasons for high business operating costs, can help you make a wiser choice.   With commercial waste recycling, not only can you use resources to maximum potential, but you are also saving on landfill costs. By having a commercial waste management business to manage your business’ waste collection, recycling, and disposal needs, you can easily organise things within your business. You can also maximise your staff’s productivity by focusing on their expertise instead of dealing with the wastes.   Now is the time to make smart decisions regarding waste recycling. With a suitable recycling method, you can minimise your effort but still get maximum results. With the help of commercial waste disposal experts, you can develop a recycling system within your company that could provide you with a long-term benefit.  If you want to know more about how your business can benefit from commercial waste recycling, feel free to speak with our specialists at North West Waste Consultants.

Is your wheelie bin overflowing?

If you can answer yes, then North West Waste Consultants wants to help solve a problem that we all suffer with; irregular and insufficient bin collections.

Waste management agency Business Waste says 54% of the public, struggling with collection times and space in their normal household bins, would prefer their council taxes to pay for more frequent bin collections.

Solution?

When our local Council reduced the number of collections for general household waste to two weekly collections it became evident there was a need for a bin bag collection service.

Despite residents’ best efforts to cut back and recycle as much as possible, households are still struggling. Bins are consistently overflowing, or additional bin bags are being placed at the side. This results in vermin such as maggots, flies and potentially rats … this causes some horrific odours that you or your neighbours wouldn’t appreciate, notwithstanding the risk of contamination and disease.

Although we are fully supportive of our local councils who have their hands tied with central government demands, that does not help the situation that virtually every householder finds themselves in.
We are a highly professional and environmentally-friendly company, covering a wide range of different areas, and we’re here to help you dispose of your extra waste at a sensible cost.

Waste Management Tips for Restaurant Owners

More than any other type of trade, the hospitality industry is among the biggest waste generators. For this reason, businesses in this trade, such as pubs and restaurants, require waste management services that will not only help them cut down on the waste they produce but will also help them become environmentally responsible when managing their wastes.  This article will discuss some helpful tips on responsible waste management that will benefit you as a restaurant owner. 
  1. Categorise your waste 
The first step in reducing commercial waste is identifying the type of waste you produce and categorising which ones go to landfills and which ones can be recycled. Having a hard time identifying? A professional commercial waste management company can help you. They can perform a waste audit to help you determine the possibilities of cutting down your waste disposal cost. 
  1. Set up the perfect waste collection method 
After determining the type of wastes your business produce, it is now time to set up a waste collection program that is suitable to your needs and cost-effective. Whether you need to hire skips or bin bags, knowing which type of waste collection method to use will help you save on cost.   For restaurants that produce a large amount of food waste, it is recommended to hire food waste collectors who can divert food waste instead of bringing them to landfills. This will not only help you skip on landfill fees, but they also help your business become more environment-friendly. 
  1. Keep track of your waste collection schedule 
Waste collection is a critical part of doing a food business, especially for hygiene and safety purposes. Store and load waste bins correctly and on time to prevent backlogs of foul-smelling food waste, potential city council fines, or extra expenses on additional waste pick up.  When choosing a waste collection company, make sure to check if they can provide you with skips that suit the type and amount of waste your business produce. 
  1. Guide your staff 
Everyone in your business has a role in making sure waste management is a success. Since they are responsible for preparing the wastes, educate and guide your staff to properly follow the waste management plan. Make sure to give them proper waste management training. You can ask your waste management company to provide the training and educate your staff about their roles.    North West Waste Consultants  For a successful and reliable food waste management service, contact us at North West Waste Consultants.

How can I reduce my waste this Christmas?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, time to put on your Christmas jumpers, fill your face with mince pies and watch the Home Alone movies for only the 50th time. Christmas however is not as wonderful for landfill sites as we include tinsel, wrapping paper, toy packaging and Christmas cards to the long list of items we throw away. Landfill sites across the UK receive the following for Christmas every year:

  • • 125,000 tonnes of plastic waste
  • • 6 million Christmas trees
  • • 1,500 tonnes of fairy lights
  • • 227,000 miles of recyclable wrapping paper
  • • 50,000 trees’ worth of Christmas cards
  • • 230,000 tonnes of food waste

    Whilst the amount of Christmas waste itself is shocking there are simple things every household can do to minimise this waste.

    Wrapping Paper

    One of the most common mistakes recyclers find in the General Waste Bins during this time of year is gift wrap. However, most Christmas wrapping papers are not recyclable, especially if they are made of foil or metallic materials.

    Why not try some recycled brown wrapping paper to make your gifts environmentally friendly? Other ‘green’ wrapping paper substitutes include the Sunday comics or the sports section of your newspaper.


    Don’t forget about the box

    Online shopping is growing every year and so is the number of boxes we use for these items. Most cardboard boxes are high-value recyclables, but the sheer volume of them means they often overflow the recycling bins and end up in the trash.

    If you receive gifts by mail this year, break down the cardboard boxes to save space and make sure they end up in the recycling pile.

    Home composting

    Instead of throwing all your potato peelings, and leftover vegetables in the bin, put them to good use and turn them into compost. It’s great for your garden and even better for the environment. Egg boxes, newspapers, tea bags, fruit scraps and veggie peelings can all be composted. Composting can remove 20-50% from your household waste stream, reducing the burden on landfills while replenishing your lawn, trees, houseplants, or garden for free.

    Make your own

    Get creative and give someone a one of a kind gift. Are you a keen cook? Cakes, jams and chutneys can make useful and thoughtful presents, and cut down on food waste.

    Homemade Christmas gifts like goodies, bread or Christmas ornaments and decorations made of materials from around your home make meaningful and resourceful gifts.

    For all your Christmas waste needs please get in touch with North West Waste Consultants via our Christmas collection page or call us now on 01744 758 349 for more details about how we can help with your overflowing bins this Christmas.

  • How to make your business environmentally friendly

    How to make your business environmentally friendly

    Unlike hundreds of years ago, most of our waste increasingly belongs in the biodegradable category. This means simple waste management techniques such as burying and burning aren’t as effective any more. Here’s a few reasons why waste management is very important today…

     

    Waste management can be profitable

    Recycling and waste management can lead to bigger profits for companies – especially in the food industry. Simply by planning and portioning ingredients, as well as keeping an efficient supply chain, companies such as restaurants, supermarkets and food factories can boost profits by as much as 10%. This also applies to other industries such as construction – where tightening up stock control can save on waste and increase profits.

     

    Boost company reputation

    Efficient waste management and recycling can boost your reputation in your industry. Potential and existing customers will see you as a responsible and sustainable company that cares about the environment, the future and the population.

     

    It preserves the environment

    Unfortunately we can’t simply burn all waste we come across. This is because it releases toxins, pollutes the air and can even contribute towards the destruction of the ozone layer. Some waste is hazardous and may cause harm to the environment. This includes plants, animals and habitats. Toxic materials can kill off living things and pollute bodies of water such as lakes and rivers.

     

    Reduces production costs

    An incredible benefit of waste management is it can cut overall production costs in the long run. Recycling helps to conserve natural resources such as glass, plastic, paper and oil. Reusing these materials will place less strain on our natural resources and lower the cost of production.

     

    Increases safety in the workplace and community

    Waste materials can be harmful to your workers, as well as the surrounding environment. It can save your employees and visitors from illness and accidents at work. This could include anything from putting your rubbish in the bin to sorting out waste into the correct recycling containers.

     

    Adheres to CO2 targets

    Carbon Reduction Commitment targets can be set by local authorities, designed to reduce CO2 emissions. The 2008 Climate Change Act in the UK is one of the world’s first legal climate change initiatives. The idea is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% between the years 1990 and 2050. Effective waste management can cover this act, so your company will be up to date with all legal requirements regarding waste.
