Waste & Recycling Audit

download (1)Waste & Recycling Audit

Rumpke works with businesses to perform waste and recycling audits, which involves closely reviewing a work location’s overall waste stream to identify materials that can be recycled. This is the starting point for developing a successful and cost-effective recycling program.

Rumpke will visually inspect and detail the types and volumes of trash. This analysis will provide information for Rumpke to design a comprehensive recycling program customized to meet your company’s needs.

If you’re already recycling, an audit may help identify additional ways to recycle more materials.

Benefits of a Waste & Recycling Audit

  • Identify and provide a breakdown of all materials currently generated.
  • Determine which items can be recycled.
  • Review options for recycling rather than landfilling.
  • Compare the cost of landfilling to the cost of implementing a recycling program.
