Why consider the services of a waste management consultant
Effective waste management is so much more than finding an alternative solution for your waste to landfill. It’s about reducing the source of the waste before finding the best solution financially, environmentally and socially.
The Ecoefficiency Group uses the waste hierarchy to guide all their work. The waste hierarchy gives highest priority to waste avoidance and then resource recovery including re-use, recycling, reprocessing and energy recovery and finally disposal in the most environmentally responsible manner.

The old adage “You cant manage what you don’t measure” is particularly true for waste management. Avoiding or eliminating waste at the source involves closely examining your current business operations to identify the root causes of waste and potential opportunities. Waste audits involve physically sorting through waste streams to obtain valuable information on how the waste is produced, including the management decisions and policies, as well as waste quantities and composition.

They understand the value of staff being involved in identifying the root cause of waste and problem solving.
A waste management plan identifies practical strategies and innovative solutions to avoid waste at source; streamline the collection and treatment of waste streams and increase the rate of reuse, recycling and recovery of valuable resources and energy.

The Ecoefficiency Group can help you evaluate and compare different technologies to manage or treat your waste.
