Every business has a responsibility to dispose of their waste properly. This is enshrined in regulations that relate to your industry, and the regulators can crack down with harsh penalties, which may include financial penalties, or even preventing you from operating or providing services.
On top of the obvious legal motivations, here are a few reasons to prioritise responsible waste disposal:
- To protect your reputation as a business. Most businesses nowadays are environmentally conscious, but it is easy for practices to lag behind. However, business partners are taking notice of the waste management practices of the businesses they work with, in the interests of sustainability. More and more, sustainable waste management is an expectation.
- To protect your reputation within the community. No one likes or respects a company that dumps their liquid waste or manages it unsafely. If anyone was to notice irresponsible waste disposal, they could no longer patronise your business, or could spread the word that you haven’t been responsible. Conversely, responsible disposal is a marketable selling point.
- To protect the environment and keep the community safe. How you treat waste is a matter of conscience. If one is properly educated about the impacts of irresponsible waste disposal, their conscience will often compel them to dispose of waste responsibly.
So, the question remains – how do you dispose of waste responsibly? Even the businesses with the very best of intentions can get it wrong, simply through not being aware of the correct procedures.
