MELBOURNE, Australia, Aug. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to Waste Sense, supplier of waste management service Businesses large and small in Melbourne must play their part to help minimize their contribution to the waste crisis.
Green consumerism is on the rise, and Waste Sense says companies should think about innovative, eco-friendly ways to package products. Many people now expect environmentally friendly alternatives and when a company can demonstrate its commitment to helping the environment, it positions itself ahead of its competitors.
Typical packaging materials include plastic, paper and cardboard. Choosing materials that have a reduced impact on the environment, such as recycled materials, or those that are designed to be reused for something else, can make a huge difference, says Waste Sense. Biodegradable packaging materials can easily be broken down in a commercial composting facility, ensuring the material does not end up in a landfill. Additionally, Waste Sense encourages businesses to go the extra mile and minimize packaging. The more minimalist the packaging, the less waste there is.
Businesses should also look for ways to reduce waste outside of packaging. Businesses generate a significant amount of electronic waste, such as old computers, phones, printers, cables and more. Waste Sense says many people don’t know where to take their unwanted electronics, so they send them to the landfill. As these items often contain hazardous materials, they should be recycled or disposed of properly to avoid environmental damage. Waste Sense works proactively with customers to determine the most cost-effective and responsible disposal options and can arrange for e-waste to be collected from businesses and disposed or recycled appropriately.
Waste Sense advises businesses to ensure their entire team is properly trained and following the correct protocols. Communicating with staff is the easiest way to get everyone involved, so the team can work together to improve efficiency, reduce costs and protect the environment.
