Waste may be costing your organisation a lot more than you realise.
Waste disposal bills are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the true cost of your waste.
When you factor in material purchase costs along with transportation, storage, packaging and human resource costs, it’s estimated that the total cost of wasted materials can be up to 10 times the cost of their disposal. That means for every £1k you give your waste contractor to take away materials, your organisation has already invested up to £10k in those materials.
