The Estádio Olímpico João Havelange, home of athletics during the RIO 2016 Olympics can hold 46,931 spectators. That’s a massive amount of people. What’s even more massive is how large the team effort would have been to construct such a marvel. What’s even larger is the amount of waste that will be created every day at the Olympics. Everyone creates waste in their day-to-day lives. All this waste has to be disposed of safely and hygienically. This is why it is paramount that any business has a waste management plan.

How Do You Plan For Waste?

Although In 2013 the UK Government revoked the regulations it is still highly advisable that you create a waste management plan. When you have a large number of people in an area, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed with waste. 100 people eat lunch, that’s 100 lunches to hygienically deal with. Let’s say they all have a sandwich, a banana and a drink, that’s still 300 items of waste that need to be managed. What can be recycled, what can’t and how are you going to deal with it all?

There’s no need to panic, your problems can be reduced with a waste management plan. Here at Skippy Nationwide, our team can assist in the preparation and implementation of a waste management plan.

Save Time, Stress And Money

By planning ahead of time you can save yourself some stress, you could also save yourself some money as well with services such as bulk recycling orders. If you know roughly how much you need to recycle, it’s much easier to budget for it.

So What Can Be Recycled?

The easiest way to check if something can be recycled is by looking on the side of the product and looking at the information. For example, empty aerosol cans. Around 60% of them are made from tinplated steel and around 40% are made from aluminium, both those metals are recyclable so you’re good to go. Fun fact, according to Recycle Now if everyone in the UK recycled 1 empty can of air freshener; it would save enough energy to run a TV in 273,000 homes for a year. If you’re unsure on whether or not your waste can be recycled, Recycle Now also has a great search feature that tells you what can be recycled.
