One of the ways Alpha CPS can help our customers reduce their impact on the environment is to help them manage their waste stream more effectively to reduce waste going to landfill. Each waste stream can be measured and compared to illustrate trends and prompt changes in behaviour to improve the facilities sustainability approach.
Some of the initiatives we have helped introduce are:
- Organic waste bins for food waste. These can facilitate downstream processing in on-premises work farms to provide nutrients for plants and gardens.
- Paper and cardboard bins to separate from plastic and metal recyclable waste.
- Desktop bins for paper disposal into consolidated 240L central waste bins. This offers employees the opportunity to easily participate in recycling programs.
- Toolbox training held with representatives implementing changes to recycling and colour coding of bins managing the waste stream.
