Achieving ROI and efficient waste management isn’t exactly a walk in the park. For businesses with regular waste productions, creating a good waste management strategy is important. Here at Greenbank, we can help you with that.
Businesses of all types produce waste. This may be waste from construction sites or cardboard in retail environments. Regardless of the type or the size, there’s always the opportunity to optimise how a business deals with the waste they produce.
For efficient waste management to be achieved, we would recommend working directly with an experienced waste management solutions provider. However, before you start to research potential partners, explore the key considerations that will help you refine what you’re looking for.
Key Considerations for Achieving ROI in Waste Management
Capturing ROI within waste management necessitates working with an experienced waste management solutions provider. These organisations are strategically placed to respond to waste management needs, whether that’s through offering bespoke equipment, advising on best practices or providing on-site services (such as maintenance or auditing).
Below, you’ll find several considerations worth thinking over when approaching a more efficient waste management strategy. All of them revolve around partnering with an experienced waste management solutions provider.
However, these aren’t the full range of considerations. If you’d like to see more, skip to the end of this blog to download our useful considerations checklist.
Q: Does the provider have in-house engineers that can service your machinery?
The best waste management machinery providers will have qualified, in-house engineers with a wide range of knowledge and experience in machinery such as balers and compactors.
Q: Does the provider offer nationwide coverage?
There isn’t much point in working with a provider who isn’t strategically positioned to provide maintenance or repairs on your site. The best provider is one who has engineers on call throughout the UK to minimise downtime and carbon footprint associated with repair.
Q: Does the provider have a working knowledge of current waste management legislation and enable you to remain compliant?
Businesses need to be wary of the regulations that exist regarding waste management and disposal. The right waste management provider will have an in-house SHEQ (safety, health, environment and quality) manager on board to keep an eye on compliance.
Q: Can the provider tailor the installation to requirements discovered in an audit?
No two sites are the same. Each one will require different installation and set-up considerations and solutions. Choose a provider that’s flexible and fully supports the installation process.
We realise that questions like these don’t come around often. In general, most businesses, along with their facility and site managers, will be concerned with the day-to-day processes. However, there comes a point where waste management strategies are called into question. Are they as efficient as possible? Do they guarantee ROI? Are they too expensive?
Here at Greenbank, our methods and service offerings give the best possible answers to those questions.
The Greenbank Approach
Here’s what we offer.
A Complimentary On-Site Waste Audit
Here at Greenbank, we can provide advice and insight to help you determine a potential ROI from onboarding waste management machinery in the form of a complimentary waste audit.
An onsite waste audit helps identify the current waste management performance of an entire waste management process. If this process doesn’t exist, the audit can offer potential solutions based on the type and amount of waste produced, with considerations regarding site set-up and collections.
A Tailored Range of Products
After a waste audit, onboarding waste management machinery is the only way that an organisation can truly optimise their waste management processes. Whether you want to reduce the volume of waste, ensure a safer, more hygienic environment or even create a potential revenue stream, waste management machinery is the answer.
Our product range is incredibly varied and satisfies the needs of a variety of waste management concerns.
- Vertical balers
- Semi-automatic balers
- Static compactors
- Fully-automatic balers
- Portable compactors
- Polystyrene compactors
- Quality used equipment
Intelligent Waste Management Solutions
Waste management is currently experiencing a renaissance. Gone are the days when waste was simply thrown away. Now, not only can we effectively deal with waste through bespoke waste management machinery, we can also track waste production.
Here at Greenbank, we offer two fantastic solutions; the Bramidan Intelligence system, otherwise known as BRA-IN, and the Greenbank PULSE system. PULSE and BRA-IN allow businesses to:
- Discover how many bales are being produced.
- Monitor the status of machines.
- Evaluate weekly throughput.
- Remotely diagnose issues.
- Discover where particular machines are stationed.
- Receive notifications for errors and other issues.
For more information on reducing things like downtime with waste management software, read our blog on the subject here.
Overall, a mixture of these solutions will guarantee both ROI and efficient waste management. While the cost of waste management machinery may seem like something to avoid if you’re looking to reduce overheads, the truth isn’t so clear cut.
Implementing waste management machinery will actually achieve cost savings over a period of time by reducing the need for waste collections, reducing the risk of non-compliance and creating new avenues for revenue generation (namely selling recycled material, such as polystyrene).
However, before all of this, you’ll need to identify which waste management solutions provider is right for you. Keep reading to find out how.
