Waste Audits

A waste audit is the study of waste produced at a designated entity. The results from your waste audit serves as the foundation for developing the waste reduction work plan.

G F Environmental Waste Audit process involves:

  • Identifying the manner by which waste is managed.
  • Measuring the quantity of waste.
  • Identifying the composition of waste.
  • Revealing problem areas and finding solutions to those areas.

Waste Audits in Ontario, Canada are mandatory for specific buildings in the IC&I sectors because they are required by law to comply with regulations. Waste Audits will save your business money as such,  all organizations are strongly encouraged to audit their waste streams as they will also reap huge rewards by doing so.

Zero Waste Programs and Events

Zero waste events are waste reduction activities conducted on clients’ site to raise awareness and engage their staff.  For example, a barbecue event is planned and organized by the client and G F Environmental staff will be onsite to ensure recyclables are diverted efficiently from the waste stream.

Waste and recycling generated onsite are weighed and a report is presented to the client. Conducting such events annually is also a great way to monitor waste reduction progress and improve communication among staff.

 

Education and Outreach

Our educational programs are delivered to management, staff, and tenants, and other stakeholders in a variety of formats from our customized website and blog to seminars, flyers, labels, newsletters and signage.

We offer in-person presentations for your staff or tenants. We assist our clients with special events in form of games and displays; events to mark Earth day, Waste reduction Week and more.

 

We also offer training programs for your cleaning staff. We bring your custodial staff up to speed with how waste should be collected within your organization. If your organization has recycling programs in place, it is important for waste and recycling streams to be properly segregated.

Regular meeting is recommended to ensure your cleaners are well informed of your waste management policy and if there are any issues, the meetings and information sessions would help clarify them.
