We have the knowledge and experience to provide audits that meet and exceed regulatory requirements, with analysis that will help clients stay compliant and achieve sustainability goals.
A waste audit involves the gathering of data about current waste production, whether by a business or community. It includes information on waste handling practices for each subset of waste. This information is tied to specific areas of the organization and to the activities occurring within each area.
As such, you can get a handle on where your waste is coming from, how it’s being handled and where it’s going.

A waste audit takes a deep dive into the amounts and types of waste being discarded and where they came from. In practice this involves taking all – or a representative sample – of the waste thrown away and sorting, weighing and recording the different quantities and types of waste, from organics (banana peels and coffee grounds) to paper and cardboard, diapers, take-out food containers, plastics and cat litter.
