Waste Audit Form for Businesses
One way to help your business determine what to concentrate your efforts on when it comes to waste reduction and recycling is to do a waste audit. You simply plug in the types of wastes that you are generating (by weight &/or volume) and it automatically calculates the percentage each waste type represents and it generates pie charts showing the waste composition by weight and volume.
From deskside recycling boxes to stickers and posters, we have a variety of materials that we can send you for free! Click above to see what we have available and simply email us to let us know what materials you need and how many of each type.
One way to help your business determine how much energy your business is wasting due to computers, monitors, copy machines and appliances that are left on at night and on weekends is to do an electronics audit. Our electronics/appliances audit form is downloadable in the "Resources" section of our EarthWISE website. You simply count how many machines have been left on and enter it into the spreadsheet and it automatically calculates the kWh being wasted and how much money your business is losing because of it. Feel free to adapt our
sample policy requiring people to turn off their computers .
