Providing Waste Audits throughout North America
While waste audits are mandatory in Ontario, our award winning waste audit team has been providing waste audits throughout North America for companies who’s trust we’ve earned. They rely on our guidance in waste and recycling management programs site to site.
A non-hazardous waste audit is the process through which information about existing waste management practices is collected and analyzed in order to identify efficiencies and deficiencies.
Using the Standard Waste Audit Methodology (SWAM), the PragmaTech audit team conducts a fine sort to determine all streams of waste generated within a facility – by department and as a whole – to identify opportunities for improved waste reduction and diversion. Following the physical sort, audit results are presented in an audit report, and any issues of non-compliance are noted, as per all applicable waste management regulations, for immediate attention.
