Waste management service launched for manufacturing sector

A free waste management service that aims to get more manufacturing, processing and distribution businesses to recognise the cost and environmental benefits of baling and compacting waste is being launched.

Wastesaving Audit is being launched by phs Wastekit, one of the biggest divisions in the phs Group. The service includes a free site survey to review businesses’ current waste management practices, a bespoke consultation to advise on where cost savings can be made and a free trial of a baler or compactor machine, plus training in how to use it.

Says phs Wastekit managing director Joe Roberts: “It’s surprising how many businesses are still unaware of the huge cost reductions that they can make using a baler or compactor machine. That’s why we felt compelled to do something to open their eyes to the savings and created the Wastesaving Audit.

“Balers and compactors will - without exception - save businesses up to 90% of their waste disposal costs, which will have a huge impact on their bottom line. The machines work by reducing the volume of general and recyclable waste by compacting it down and baling it, which means businesses can dramatically reduce the number of waste collections they need to pay for."

Roberts continues: “A lot of businesses also don’t realise that they can actually make money from baled recyclables like cardboard and plastic. Selling baled recyclables to recycling companies can generate a whole new revenue stream for them and reduce their landfill tax bill. We work with many businesses to ensure they make the most of that opportunity.”
