Due to the unprecedented implications of COVID-19, businesses are being more pro-active than ever in exploring ways to reduce costs.

As a business owner with so much going on, the cost of trade waste to your business probably isn’t something that you often think about. However, by working with a waste management company, these costs can be significantly cut.

With our headquarters based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, at KCM Waste Management we are proud to serve businesses with our trade waste services throughout the surrounding areas.We typically cover Rotherham, Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster, Worksop, Chesterfield, and more.

If you’re looking for ways to cut costs and to reduce the amount of waste that you produce, then take a look at our top 3 methods below:

1) Hire FREE Trade Waste Bins!

At KCM, our trade waste disposal collections are designed for trade and commercial clients such as pubs, offices, schools, restaurants, takeaways, and shops.

We can provide free hire of various lightweight trade bins. All you have to do is choose your size and inform us of the number of bins required. We will then collect and dispose of their contents on your desired basis. All you have to pay for is the collection fee!

We know that waste management is one of the less glamorous aspects of your business. That’s why our bins and bin bags are discreet and are easy to move and manage. Plus, we collect on time, safely, and efficiently.

Working with a professional waste management company such as KCM means your waste can be recycled and won’t end up in landfill where it will damage the environment by polluting the air and soil. This means that they can help reduce your carbon footprint, which is great for the environment as well as great for your reputation.

Our trade waste bins will also save you money! Landfill taxes are increasing dramatically, so recycling with our trade waste service has never been easier or cheaper.

2) Purchase & Work More Efficiently

Reduce the waste that your business generates by efficient purchasing and working!

It’s a great idea to keep a waste management log so that you’re able to see what you’re ordering, and what you’re wasting. From there you can review your monthly purchases to ensure you’re not over-spending and only purchasing the materials that you actually need.

In terms of buying, you could purchase merchandise and stock in bulk to avoid pointless monthly ordering. This could also help reduce the amount of waste that’s created from excess packaging.

If you’re based within commercial business premises such as an office, do you create and circulate electronic meeting documents, rather than print? Do you proactively promote recycling and encourage employees to recycle?

If you’re a public-facing business such as a restaurant, takeaway, or shop, when ordering stock do you ask suppliers to send with limited packaging? Do you have signage to encourage your customers to dispose of items in the correct way?

There are so many simple habits you could introduce to your workplace to help reduce your waste costs. If you need any help with this, then you can book a free consultation with KCM to discuss your needs and implement a waste management plan.

3) Implement Simple Recycling Procedures

Everyone at your business should do their bit to help recycle and reduce the amount of commercial waste you produce. Try small things to begin with such as implementing recycle bins within your canteen, and boxes for paper to be recycled.

Educate your team on the 3 Rs:

  • REDUCE – Do we need to have so much?
  • REUSE – Can this be used for something else, rather than wasted?
  • RECYCLE – If you can’t reuse it but it can be recycled, dispose of it in the correct location.

It’s important to also stay on top of the disposing of your confidential waste. If you let it build-up to the end of the year, then it can become a costly and stressful job.

At KCM, we provide our clients throughout South Yorkshire with either containers or recyclable bags for all of their secure documents.

We then recycle the remains of the shredded documents to be reused for a variety of purposes. We can schedule document collection as frequently as you need it or on an irregular, ad hoc basis.
