In Waste Management by David FahrionLeave a Comment

In the dynamic world of manufacturing, where production processes operate at full throttle and resources are in high demand, the issue of waste management often takes a back seat. 

Yet, the consequences of inefficient waste handling can significantly lead to financial losses and have a negative environmental impact. That’s where Waste Control, a leading waste management company, transforms how manufacturing companies tackle waste.

Waste Control’s expertise enables manufacturers to increase their savings and improve operational efficiency through comprehensive waste management solutions. In addition, our company addresses the unique challenges manufacturers face head-on through our integrated waste management solutions. 

Our approach covers specialized services and technologies carefully tailored to optimize total waste management and yield maximum benefits for manufacturing companies. 

From waste auditing and characterization to waste minimization strategies, recycling initiatives, hazardous waste management, and even resource recovery and energy generation, Waste Control provides a holistic suite of solutions that ensure every aspect of waste is handled efficiently.

The Challenges Of Waste Management In Manufacturing

The manufacturing industry globally generates substantial amounts of waste. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the manufacturing industry is responsible for a significant proportion of waste generation in the US. 

In 2018 alone, the manufacturing industry generated 6.7 billion tons of waste, accounting for 29% of the total waste generated in the country.

Even though everyone knows how essential waste management is, manufacturers often face several challenges in dealing with waste. 

Volume and Diversity of Waste Streams

Manufacturing processes generate diverse types of waste, such as hazardous, electronic, and recyclable, which can be challenging to manage. Additionally, the volume of waste generated can be overwhelming, and traditional disposal methods may not be appropriate.

Compliance with Environmental Regulations

Manufacturers are under strict regulations controlling how they handle, dispose of, and transport waste. These regulations aim to protect the environment, promote public health and safety, and conserve natural resources. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in substantial penalties and litigation costs.

Cost Implications of Waste Disposal

It can be costly for manufacturers to dispose of waste through traditional methods, such as landfilling and incineration, which are often not sustainable or environmentally friendly. As the volume of waste generated increases, the cost of waste disposal also increases, impacting companies’ bottom line.

Operational Inefficiencies

Poor waste management practices can negatively impact a manufacturer’s operational efficiency. For instance, waste can cause clogs, damage equipment, and create unnecessary downtime during production. It can also lead to unnecessary labor and transport costs in managing the waste generated.
