Cut Costs & Waste: Free Online Tool
There is no question that reducing waste is good for the environment. It’s good for your bottom line, too. EPA WasteWise is a free and voluntary online tool that can save you money and help you meet your corporate sustainability goals.
“EPA WasteWise helped us see that finding a use for our short paper fiber waste was the most effective way to reach our impact reduction goals,” says Environmental Manager Brian Maloy. Monadnock has been an EPA WasteWise partner since 2012.
Waste to Wonderful
Short paper fiber is wood fiber that is just too small to remain on the paper machine during production. Resource Management, Inc. (RMI) takes about 1.3 million pounds of that waste each year and converts it into compost, soil amendment, and animal bedding, moving us much closer to our objective of zero waste to landfill.
“Our partnership with RMI saves us the expense of handling, transporting and disposal,” says Maloy.
Easy to Use
WasteWise is easy to use. You can establish a baseline, set reduction goals, and track progress year over year. Inputs to WasteWise include plastics, metal, paper and glass, recycling and using recycled materials. If your organization has the capacity to quantify these materials, you are ready to plug in and get started.
With the help of WasteWise tools, Monadnock has achieved a significant reduction in municipal solid waste and saved money.
