Waste management, recycling, and sustainability practices have become essential for businesses that aim to optimise their operations while reducing their environmental impact.

The 2024 Global Waste Management Outlook highlights the importance of changing the way we manage waste.

Instead of following a linear approach, we must actively reintegrate discarded materials into the value chain. Implementing strategies such as zero waste and a circular economy is crucial to ensuring the rights of future generations are protected.

Simplify The Process

 

Reducing the confusion around how to recycle, results in improved recycling rates, time and money savings, and substantial CO2 reduction.

Our design-led recycling stations engage and communicate clearly with colour coded waste stream signage and apertures.

This removes the ‘2-second pause’ and reduces the risk of contaminated waste.

Staff Training and Buy-in


In order to effectively achieve sustainability targets, it is not enough to place recycling bins around the workplace. It is essential to raise awareness among all employees about the importance of proper waste management and recycling. 


Develop a culture of sustainability to establish successful long-term waste management practices within your organisation.

We provide comprehensive training sessions that are specifically aimed to improve workplace recycling engagement. These sessions are designed to educate employees and management on the importance of recycling, clarify local and regional recycling laws, and provide practical tips for effectively implementing recycling practices. By fostering a culture of sustainability, companies can reduce their environmental impact and inspire positive behavioural change among their teams.

Our training sessions aim to empower participants with the knowledge, tools, and motivation necessary to enhance recycling efforts within their organisation, ultimately contributing to a greener and more sustainable workplace.

Prioritise Circular Economy Principles


Adopting circular economy principles is essential to ensuring sustainable resource management. 

But what exactly is the Circular Economy?

It is a model that prioritises sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing, and recycling materials and products to extend their lifespan as much as possible.

At Unisan, we strongly advocate for adopting circularity strategies that emphasise resource recovery, reuse, and closed-loop systems. 

By integrating recycled materials into products, implementing reverse logistics processes, and collaborating with suppliers to minimise waste generation, organisations can reduce their environmental impact and also drive innovation and economic growth.


Follow the Waste Hierarchy


The Waste Hierarchy is a framework for prioritising waste management strategies based on their environmental impact.

We continuously encourage organisations to adhere to the Waste Hierarchy framework, which includes the following principles:

Prevention: Minimise waste generation by implementing efficient processes and reducing consumption.

Reuse: Prioritise reuse of materials and products whenever possible to extend their lifespan and minimise the need for disposal.

Recycling: Maximise recycling efforts to recover valuable resources and divert waste from landfills.

Recovery: Explore alternative waste treatment methods, such as energy recovery, to extract value from non-recyclable materials.

Disposal: As a last resort, dispose of waste in an environmentally responsible manner, prioritising methods such as landfill diversion and waste-to-energy technologies.

Waste Hierarchy Framework


Organisations can promote sustainable development and minimise environmental impact by aligning waste management practices with the Waste Hierarchy to optimise resource utilisation.


By leveraging our expertise, organisations can transform their approach to waste management in 2024 and beyond.

By working together, we can create a more sustainable future.

At Unisan, you can find comprehensive recycling, waste, and hygiene solutions for all industries. We also provide end-to-end support to help organisations optimise their sustainability efforts stress-free.
