Waste Prevention Tools at Work: Chapter 04: Developing a Waste Management Plan
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 4 of 5 for this video. All of the gathered information must be considered when developing an effective waste management plan. After the information is analyzed, a report will be given to the business containing a summary of findings, and possible solutions. Some successful solutions include: giving away items that are no longer useful; using email instead of paper memos; reuse of materials; buy and sell in bulk; use durable, repairable or washable items rather than disposables; store records electronically; use energy efficient light bulbs; use refillable toner cartridges; make double-sided copies; participate in a waste exchange; offer half portions of food and compost food waste. Any waste management program will be more successful if it involves the employees.
