Waste Management

Shaw helps clients analyze and itemize their waste stream for optimal reuse and recovery opportunities. We help organizations perform overall company plans and strategies to achieve sustainability.

Studies show that seventy-five percent of all waste that goes to landfills comes from businesses. Many companies have found sustainable waste management as a means of moving beyond compliance-based business practices to more efficient business operations and to improve their environmental performance. They are applying the sustainability principles of: Plan; Reduce; Recycle; Reuse; Compost.

Reducing waste means there is less waste to manage. Each ton of waste diverted can save an organization's bottom line. And waste reduction is a process people can get behind. When they see their neighboring enterprises performing as conscientious stewards of the environment in which they live, they are more likely to lend their loyalties to that enterprise.

Shaw can help organizations with items such as:

  • Preparing a detailed, customized waste management plan with recommendations
  • Reviewing purchasing and consumption patterns
  • Analyzing waste to identify recycling possibilities
  • Identifying the best recycling resources
  • Identifying realistic reuse options
  • Compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs and environmental releases
  • Evaluating the potential environmental impacts associated with identified inputs and releases
  • Interpreting results to help decision-makers make a more informed decision
