10 Ways Waste Management Makes Managers Lives Easier
We all look for ways to make our working lives simpler. The problem however, is this often comes with the risk of losing quality or productivity. When it comes to waste management solutions, we know tried and tested ways of making a manager’s life easier that don’t affect quality or productivity. And they don’t cost the earth, either.
Effective waste management makes a huge difference within any company. Here are 10 ways it benefits every manager:
- Less time spent dealing with waste management companies
- Maximise staff’s productivity
- Fewer collections are needed, saving you money
- Modified equipment works around you
- Waste management companies can identify inefficiencies
- It helps build a greener company
- Recycling can bring in additional revenue
- Reduced risk of vermin
- Waste users can be invoiced individually
1. Less time spent dealing with waste management companies
Use waste management solutions you can rely on and you’ll be surprised how much time it saves. A good waste management company works closely with your business and knows when collections are needed, which materials are being recycled and so on. They then plan regular collections around this. An agreement is set in place and less time is spent on the phone dealing with issues and arranging extra collections.
2. Maximise staff’s productivity
The better your waste management systems, the less time staff spend dealing with issues. If machinery is working, up to date and easy to use, staff can carry out waste disposal jobs quickly and spend more time on other duties thus maximising productivity.
3. Fewer collections are needed, saving you money
When you manage waste properly and use efficient machinery, you reduce the number of collections required. Many of our customers have experienced this first hand.
“Not only have we been able to significantly drive down costs, we have also reduced our carbon footprint as the number of skip collections required has reduced from twice a week to once a fortnight” – Deli Solutions
Modern equipment is more compact. From compactors to balers, our equipment takes up less floor space. If you have very limited space, speak to us. We can often modify equipment to suit your premises.
5. Modified equipment works around you
A Greenbank client with block paved flooring needed to site their waste disposal. We modified compactors and made the necessary technical adjustments. The client now has machinery that fits in their workspace and saves staff time and effort. Everything is right where it needs to be and the disposal process runs smoothly.
We always make waste management solutions work around you. If there’s a problem that needs solving our team are on hand to help. Speak to us to see how.
6. Waste management companies can identify inefficiencies
For example, did you know, our advisers can visit your site and recommend the best equipment and processes for you? We’ve done this for many customers.
We worked with the Trinity Centre in Leeds, identifying how we could use a bin lifting system to enable automatic off dock loading. This made emptying bins quicker and easier, saving staff time.
We also worked with WHSmith distribution centres, where we managed to improve the waste disposal process by changing the order of operations, again making staff more efficient.
7. It helps build a greener company
Your waste management company is an integral part of your supply chain. Work with greener companies and they will help you adopt sustainable practices.
Greenbank promotes a circular economy. We remanufacture equipment to give clients efficient systems without having to buy new. We also promote recycling, and will advise you on what materials can be recycled as well as arranging collections to suit.
In addition, we place a huge focus on efficiency. Efficient waste disposal methods mean fewer collections, reducing the number of trucks on the road that vastly reduce the carbon footprint of a company.
8. Recycling can bring in additional revenue
Some materials have to be recycled by law, and some are so in demand that recyclers will pay you to bring them in. We help you identify what can be recycled and reused, and take it to the appropriate recycling centres so you can turn waste into revenue.
9. Reduced risk of vermin
Clean premises significantly reduce the risk of vermin, and make for a clean and safe work environment. Keeping machinery running effectively and adhering to strict waste disposal practices will decrease the risk of vermin,and the associated time spent with pest control, environmental health issues and so on.
10. Waste users can be invoiced individually
For retail centres and business parks with tenants, or any situation where many people are using the same compactor, it’s important to get invoicing right. Light users don’t want to pay the same fees as heavy users. With our C’Bizz system, each user is invoiced individually according to the amount they actually use. The compactor uses an intelligent weighing system to record data for each user. The system has proven hugely successful to date, resulting in much happier tenants and managers.
Could your waste management be more effective?
Nothing is more valuable than your time and it has to be focused on making your company perform as well as possible. Losing time on inefficient systems is more than an inconvenience; it’s a draining resource that has far-reaching effects on other areas of your organisation.
