Business waste, or commercial waste, can range from regular office paper waste, to old equipment like copiers and computers, to hazardous waste that’s an industry byproduct. No matter what your business is, it is your responsibility as a business owner to take care of the waste ethically and legally. For some business owners, arranging for the removal is a task they have to accomplish. There is much to consider when it comes to commercial waste management.
Most people wouldn’t just toss their empty chip bag into their backyard or toss a water bottle out of their car on the highway. Likewise, businesses aren’t likely to toss their old printers on the side of the road. It’s our environmental responsibility to make sure our waste is properly disposed.
Legalities of Commercial Waste Management
According to the EPA, your business is required by law to ensure that the waste created is disposed of correctly. Properly vetting reputable waste management companies, specifically those that have experience in commercial waste management, can help ensure you are meeting your legal requirements.
Companies with smaller carbon footprints, or appear to be green, have a better appeal to customers and clients that care about the environment. Business park owners can attract new renters and businesses with a solid commercial waste management program.
