Industrial environmental services: we all like to believe that we can have a win : win in life and to be honest, sometimes that is just not possible. The accepted wisdom is that we need to make tough compromises and balance how much we really value different things. This can be particularly valid in the context of the environment when politicians talk about balancing economic development and environmental protection.

 

Waster offers an alternative for industrial environmental services for small and medium businesses, with a real focus on recycling. Check out our prices and service online today to see if recycling more can help you save money:

 

Industrial environmental services – why finding a balance can be more rewarding than you expect

 

Waster is a big promoter of increasing recycling when it can reduce your business costs as well as of course help the environment. There are increasing recycling services available in nearly all metro areas such as cardboard recycling, commingled yellow bin recycling and organic waste services.

 

In most cases implementing a smart waste management plan can result in easy savings – due to the heavy (and increasing) landfill levy on dumping general waste.

 

The accuweather.com website lists 4 other good and easy ways to reduce costs whilst helping the environment (we quote from the article below):

 

Preserve water:  “Little ways to help save water can quickly add up. To help save water, be sure to fix leaky faucets, which, according to the USGS, could account for more than 100 gallons of wasted water a year. Turn running water off when not actively being used during routine chores such as brushing teeth or washing dishes.”

 

Protect bees: “Honey bees have been mysteriously dying off in the millions across the globe. Research plants before adding them to a yard or garden, and focus on adding native plants. Even when buying the right kind of flowers to attract bees, make sure that you buy them organically or know where and how they have been treated.”

 

Turn the lights off: “According to Business Insider, $146 billion is thrown away each year in wasted electricity. Electricity also accounts for 32 percent of the greenhouse gases emitted in the United States, more than transportation or agriculture.”

 

“Turning off lights and appliances in rooms that are no longer being used is one way, but appliances can still draw energy even when they are switched off. Unplugging appliances, such as toasters, flat irons or gaming consoles, when they are not being used can cut down on that energy waste.”

 

Reduce air pollution: “The World Health Organization states that air pollution is not only bad for the environment, but can also add to respiratory problems such as allergies and asthma, or can even contribute to strokes and lung cancer.”

 

“The key to reducing air pollution in small steps is to abide by many other waste-reducing processes. Following the tips above to cut down on electric and landfill waste will help to reduce air pollution. Increasing the efficiency of vehicles by keeping tires properly inflated, walking or using public transportation, when possible, or keeping cars properly maintained will also help save on gas costs and cut down on air pollution.”

 

“People can also help clean the air by taking active steps, such as planting deciduous trees.”
