Waste Management 1
Conduct a waste audit
Why - In New Zealand we discard 15.5 million tonnes of waste each year. That is 3200kg for every Kiwi! Right now, we recycle only 28 percent of this waste. Having a baseline to show how you are improving not only gives a measure of success but also provides valuable information on areas where you can improve further and how your waste provider can assist. Clubs will also see a financial saving by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
How – Use past collection invoices to calculate volumes. This helps to set a benchmark for improvement.
Enlist the support of your waste service providers to help with your audit and check if your current system is working well for your club facility.
