Waste Management Services

Waste Audits and Waste Recovery Programs:
Due to the ever increasing costs of waste treatment it is essential to consider product recovery and re-use whenever possible. As part of a complete environmental program, Pollutech provides staff to conduct waste audits and prepare waste reduction workplans and conduct feasibility tests and economic assessments for most waste recovery and waste utilization systems.
Typical examples of Pollutech's experience with Waste Audits and Waste Recovery and Utilization include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Annual facility audits of recyclable and general waste streams and preparation of Waste Reduction Workplans and Source Separation Programs as outlinedin Reg 102/103;
