Data on solid waste production has lagged behind the many changes in how and where companies do business, While the visible waste at company headquarters may appear lower, businesses need to make sure that they have not simply moved their waste products into someone else’s backyard. This requires a change in terminology from “public garbage service” or “public trash pickup” to progressive waste systems that define discarded solid materials as feedstock material for production, not waste. We need to move past the public works trash service concept to public collection systems for these materials. This begins with the business owner.
Conduct business remotely. Provide electronic business cards, sales materials, and training manuals to every employee, customer, and supplier. Purchase materials with minimal packaging if they cannot be reused or recycled. Keep production and distribution hubs local when possible.
Besides creating a more attractive neighborhood, businesses that produce as little waste as possible between the factory and the family home serve as examples of responsible management. Thus, the full service waste removal service of the past must focus on the collection of feedstock material and move past old models that simply transfer the real waste problem from one location to another.
