Title: Cut waste, save money : how your business can get ahead with waste minimisation
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet aims to analyse how a business can get ahead with waste minimisation. Waste minimisation is the prevention or reduction of the generation of waste at source and includes efficient use of energy, water and raw materials. Concern for our resources and man's impact on the environment are major issues for the 1990s. Waste minimisation encourages the economic and efficient use of raw materials and other resources. Recent legislation has driven up costs of waste disposal and companies face more stringent regulation. In addition to the disposal costs, there are those resulting from wasted materials, water, energy and the actual time used in creating the waste. So waste minimisation is becoming an increasingly attractive option for businesses. Waste minimisation not only helps to reduce the impact of an industry on the environment, but it also makes sound commercial sense.
