What is waste management?

The process for operational waste management is used to collect, transport, dispose of and, if necessary, treat commercial municipal waste. In various industries, this system increases environmental awareness and promotes public health and safety.

The waste management checklist supports the waste management officer and his team in complying with legal standards. It helps to assess whether waste separation and disposal processes are being properly implemented and followed by the organisation. A waste management checklist helps avoid environmental problems and legal penalties.

In 4 steps to optimal waste management

Waste management is a time-consuming task as well as a balancing of many factors. Not only legal regulations but also environmental protection, responsibility and practicability play a role in the implementation of measures. It is therefore important to structure a plan as far as possible and to optimise each step in the best possible way. With the following 4 steps you can deal with waste disposal in your company responsibly and thoroughly:

  1. Inform yourself
    Find out about local and national regulations for waste management in companies. You should also carefully consider your options for waste disposal and be able to distinguish between different types of waste. These 4 types are commonly classified as follows:

    1. Commercial municipal waste
    2. Infectious waste
    3. Hazardous waste
    4. Industrial waste

  2. Review
    Check the existing plan (if available) and examine the individual disposal steps. The possible types of solid waste management disposal methods are:

    1. Recycling
    2. Composting
    3. combustion
    4. Sanitary landfills

    You should also evaluate office management: Where can packaging material be saved on office supplies? Are there work steps that can be digitized to save paper? By overhauling certain outdated processes you can also save costs.

  3. Implement
    The implementation of solid waste management disposal methods should be well planned. This should be determined: Who is responsible for waste disposal? There should be at least one person responsible for waste management in the company. The disposal channels should also be thoroughly assessed for effectiveness. Are the paths as short as possible? Is the disposal as climate-friendly as possible?

  4. Control
    It is certainly not enough to order individual solid waste management disposal methods, but the planning and implementation of waste management should be a long-term process. Introduced measures should always be checked for effectiveness and timeliness. For this purpose, it is particularly suitable to create a checklist for legal and internal company regulations, which serves as a guideline for evaluating the system.
