Benefits of Proper Waste Disposal in Australia

Wastech Engineering aims to help businesses achieve better sustainability practices and avoid potential disadvantages of waste management. We do this through the design, engineering and manufacturing of state-of-the-art equipment. Through decades at the forefront of the industry, we know the importance of waste disposal and have learned the best ways to deal with waste created by a host of industries. Here’s how the best sustainability practices help the environment.

The Importance of Correct Waste Disposal

Correct waste disposal is more important to businesses than it has ever been before. While always a concern for those environmentally minded, business owners and managers are now realising the benefits of sustainability practices and advanced recycling methods.

Effective waste management leads to:

  • Improved air and water quality as there are fewer pollutants
  • A reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • Minimising the unnecessary use of natural resources
  • Environmental protection
  • A healthier population

Benefits for Business

In addition to the above, businesses can benefit more directly from sound sustainability practices. This comes through reductions in the costs of waste management and the potential for waste revenue streams. Often, effectively sorted and recycled products become valuable secondary raw materials in creating new products.

Good waste management can also help businesses avoid fines and penalties associated with not meeting goals and open the potential eligibility for government grants and subsidies.

How to Manage Waste in the Community

There are a host of industries that will benefit from great waste management practices. The easiest place to start is where a business creates a lot of cardboard or plastic waste. This is relevant to most industries but perhaps, especially to retail, hospitality and any other businesses that regularly discard packaging materials. Horizontal and vertical balers, crushers and compactors assist in reducing the costs of disposing of such materials and create opportunities to sell them as secondary raw materials.

Mining, healthcare and construction businesses all have more complex sustainability challenges however, those industries can also benefit from purpose-built recycling equipment.

Purpose-Built Recycling Equipment

While there are unique challenges that face different industries, we are confident of having a solution to help you meet your goals. Whether you need a small vertical baler or a custom-made recycling plant, we have the experience and expertise to help make your business more sustainable.

We recommend getting in touch to speak to one of our experienced staff members to advise you on the best way to take your next step. Not only do we provide support equipment to help you become sustainable, but we also ensure all our equipment is manufactured using our own 85kw solar array. This means we can keep costs down and pass them on to our customers while also saving the environment.
