Establishing a comprehensive recycling at an industrial facility requires a significant level of effort, that when done properly, can yield some significant results in return. These results potentially include cost savings, a positive perception of the organization by stakeholders, employees, the community, and regulators, and a higher degree of compliance assurance.
For several decades, state, regional, and local programs to reduce materials from going to landfills have been in place and developing industries, such as electronics recycling, have targeted certain hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams for recycling and reuse. Plus, federal and state laws for beneficial use programs are in place to assist companies in finding a possible market for industrial waste streams.
While some regulations will apply to your recycling effort, the main focus should be on how to fine tune the use of raw materials and resources during the entire cycle of activity, namely the receipt, use, and disposal of key materials. It may sound complicated, but if you use a proven and established process, it can be done very effectively.
Join us for an in-depth webinar, where our presenter will show you how to focus on recycling in the context of a life-cycle analysis as applied to key materials.
You and your colleagues will learn:
- The typical materials that are candidates for recycling, including paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, metal, plastic, and wood waste
- Suggested approaches for identifying other candidate materials that are unique to your facility and operations
- Ways to generate management support and interest in your recycling initiative
- The departments in your organization that should be part of your recycling development efforts
- The essential elements to follow when developing and implementing an effective recycling program
- How to perform a "recycling material" assessment, the first, and maybe the most important step in your program
- How to locate and evaluate potential markets and partners into your program, including municipalities, commercial recyclers, and other companies that might see value in your candidate materials
- Case studies and best practices for establishing the logistics and collection components of your program
- Tips on how to effectively communicate your program to key stake holders including employees, regulators, investors, business partners, customers, and the local community
- Legal, contractual, and regulatory issues that need to be considered and how can they be best addressed
- How can you take your program to the next step by "buying" recycled when it is a good business decision
- How to identify and evaluate outside resources to help you in your recycling program efforts

versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
