What is a Waste Audit?

A waste audit is a comprehensive examination of your business’s waste management practices. It involves analysing the types and amounts of waste your company generates, how that waste is handled, and identifying areas where improvements can be made. The goal is to uncover inefficiencies, pinpoint opportunities for cost savings, and enhance overall waste management processes.

During a waste audit, our experts will conduct a site inspection, review waste disposal records, and analyse waste streams to determine the composition and volume of waste produced. This thorough assessment provides valuable insights into how waste is being managed and where changes can be implemented to reduce waste, improve recycling rates, and achieve sustainability goals.

By understanding the specifics of your waste generation and management, a waste audit helps create a tailored strategy that optimises your waste handling processes, ensuring they are efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly.

Why Does My Business Need a Waste Audit?

A waste audit is essential for businesses looking to improve their waste management and reach sustainability goals. By conducting a waste audit, you gain a clear understanding of your current waste streams, allowing you to spot inefficiencies and areas for improvement. This insight helps you develop effective strategies to reduce waste, increase recycling, and lessen environmental impact.

Additionally, a waste audit helps ensure you comply with environmental regulations, avoiding fines and legal issues. Regular audits keep you ahead of regulatory requirements and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability, which can attract eco-conscious customers and partners. Furthermore, a waste audit can uncover opportunities for cost savings by identifying and eliminating inefficiencies in your waste handling processes, ultimately improving your bottom line.

What is included in a Waste Audit?

When you take advantage of a free waste audit with us, you're taking a significant step towards streamlining your waste management practices and boosting your sustainability efforts. A waste management audit has the potential to completely revolutionise your recycling processes, offering various benefits to your business, from reducing costs to helping you increase your rebates. Here's what a typical waste audit call looks like:


Understanding your waste throughputs

We’ll start the audit by asking a few key questions - your answers will help us understand your current processes, what’s working for you and what isn’t. If you don't have the information readily available, don't worry – we'll guide you through the process of finding it.


Addressing your business's challenges

Every business has its unique waste challenges. Whether it's dealing with overflowing polystyrene waste posing safety concerns in your warehouse or aiming to cut down on labour expenses, we'll delve into your specific pain points. This part of the audit ensures that we grasp the core issues you're facing.


Tailored Strategies and Machinery Recommendations

Based on the data collected and your challenges, we provide you with actionable strategies and machinery recommendations that align with your business’ requirements. Our goal is to provide you with recommendations that will reduce your waste handling costs, your carbon footprint and potentially help you create a new revenue stream.


Calculating ROI and Data-Backed Decisions

We understand that investing in waste management machinery is a significant decision. That's why we'll go the extra mile to calculate the potential Return on Investment (ROI) from your machinery investment. Armed with concrete data, you can make an informed decision that's not just based on speculation, but on actual figures.

What are the benefits of a Waste Audit?

Reduce Waste Collection Costs

A waste management audit can help you identify parts of your waste/recycling processes that present opportunities for optimisation – whether that be ways to reduce the amount of time your employees spend on recycling tasks or reducing the number of bins that have to be collected weekly. Finding simple solutions to efficient processes can yield great cost reductions for your business.

Increase Sustainability

Similarly to how a waste management audit can identify areas where you can reduce costs, it can identify ways in which you can increase sustainability. This includes finding processes that can be optimised to reduce waste production in your business or reducing the labour involved in the process, as well as increasing the amount of that waste that is recycled.

Increase Rebates

By baling your recyclable materials – such as cardboard, polystyrene or aluminium, you can sell them to recyclers, thereby creating a new stream of income for your business. A waste management audit with Robin will help identify opportunities where you can start making money from your waste by installing balers and/or compactors . If you already have balers installed, there are still recommendations that we can make to help increase your rebates – such as improved segregation.

Reduce Contamination

Waste contamination can make your entire bale unrecyclable, and therefore, no rebates can be achieved – this is why reducing waste contamination is so important. A waste management audit will help you identify the sources of contamination so that you can clamp down on them quickly. This may include anything from the inefficient sorting of recyclable materials to using the wrong machinery.

Achieve ISO Accreditation

An ISO accreditation means that you’re been audited by a third party who confirmed that your business has demonstrated its ability to meet the latest waste management standards set by the International Standards Organization. A waste management audit can help you identify whether you have the correct waste management processes in place in order to achieve the various ISO accreditations for quality management.

Save Staff Time

Identifying opportunities for automation is another benefit of an audit with Robin. Automating your recycling processes as much as possible will help you reduce the amount of time your staff spend recycling, freeing up more time for them to get on with more important tasks.
