During the first week of October 2012, the Let’s Talk Trash team conducted a Commercial Waste Audit of 16 local businesses. The intention of this waste composition study was to glean information on waste habits and patterns and identify opportunities for improved waste reduction.
Benefits to local businesses for participating in this waste composition study include:
- Reduction in Waste Disposal Costs
- Improving Internal Waste Disposal and Recycling Systems
- Maximizing Resource Recovery
Thank you to the local businesses for providing us with this opportunity!
