Waste Audits

A waste audit is a process that inspects, documents and analyzes the waste generated by a business or organization.

The primary objective of a waste audit is to better understand the composition and amount of waste being generated.

Then this information can be used to track waste management effectiveness, possible areas of improvement, and opportunities for implementing other waste diversion streams.

Green Action Centre conducts waste audits that align with BOMA and LEED standards.

What to Expect

We facilitate hassle-free waste audits in 4 steps:

Planning and Preparation

Green Action Centre will come prepared with all the materials necessary to conduct a comprehensive waste audit. To make the process as smooth as possible, a contact person from your organization will be needed to assist in scheduling the audit, coordinating the collection of waste to be audited, and arranging a space for sorting.

Auditing Process

We offer single-day auditing services to sort, weigh, and measure waste from garbage, recycling, and composting streams. Due to safety reasons, bathroom waste, hazardous waste, and PPE waste will not be collected.

Assessments and Analysis

Once the audit is complete, the results will be analyzed to understand the proportion and composition of various waste types, while also pinpointing opportunities for improvement.

Reporting and Recommendations

You will receive a waste audit report complete with audit data, recommendations for improvement, and actionable steps that could be taken specific to your organization.
