Waste Audits & Reduction


We use a three-step approach to helping our customers understand their waste management needs and put a strategy into action.  

Our free waste services can identify recyclable or reusable items in your waste stream, helping you reduce waste, recycle more, and save money. Audits also ensure compliance with new regulations. (link to Webinar on legislation)

Case Study - Royal Opera House

When partnering with First Mile, Royal Opera House were keen to monitor and increase their sustainability through recycling more, but required a strategy put into action.

Our solution was to carry out two waste audits, one for theatres visitors and another for their staff to better understand their waste and recycling needs.

From the Waste Audit, we worked with Royal Opera House to develop strategies to increase their recycling such as the implimentation of a Compostables Recycling Stream, resulting in a 20% recycling rate increase and 30% decrease in General Waste.
