What is a waste audit?

Request ServiceA waste audit is an analysis of your building’s waste stream. Waste audits identify what types of recyclable materials and waste your business generates and how much of each type is recovered for recycling or is discarded. By using the data we collect, we can help your business identify the feasibility of enhancing its recycling efforts and potential cost savings by identifying:

  • Municipal Waste
  • Electronic Waste
  • Recyclable Material
  • Yard Waste
  • Hazardous Waste (solvents, waste containing heavy metals, oil-based paint, etc.)
  • Universal Waste (fluorescent bulbs, batteries, pesticides, thermostats, etc.)
  • Other Waste

What are the benefits of a free waste audit?

  • Peace of mind knowing your business is meeting legal disposal requirements.
  • Your business will recycle more, which diverts useful materials from the landfill, reduces air and water pollution, and conserves natural resources.
  • Your business may reduce the volume and/or frequency of solid waste disposal and hauling costs.

Through recycling and proper composting, your business can save money by avoiding disposal and hauling costs. Many recyclable items can be sold on the market as a source of revenue. A waste audit by Waste Connections of Colorado – Denver can help your organization identify these potential savings and revenue opportunities in your current commercial waste service.
