The 2nd edition of BIFM’s Good Practice Guide for Recycling and Waste Management sponsored by WCRS has now been published.
The 36-page guide looks at the key drivers and the principles behind best practice, giving practical tips and considerations for facilities management professionals looking to improve their recycling, manage their risk and safeguard their organisation’s reputation.
Since the last guide was published in 2013 there has been a significant shift in the way the industry views best practice for managing waste resources and many changes in legislation.
Tony Windsor, Managing Director at WCRS commented: “Facilities management professionals have an increasingly complex challenge when it comes to their recycling and waste management operations and practices. Not only has waste and recycling become increasingly regulated over the last decade but as part of CSR, organisations are realising the true value of taking a more effective approach, by relying on an expert and experienced waste management partner to keep them ahead of the game.
WCRS are pleased to be working with BIFM and supporting the Good Practice Guide, providing an invaluable reference of the current issues and considerations for all FM’s across all sectors of industry.”
BIFM research and information executive Annie Horsley said: “Businesses are under increasing pressure from all directions to ensure their waste and recycling practices stand up to scrutiny, and FMs are at the forefront of helping to reduce an organisation’s impact on the environment, meet legislation and manage waste in the most cost effective way.
“The principles of good practice and sustainable waste management include economic value, environmental value and social value; by embracing these principles and taking a proactive approach there are significant savings to be made – demonstrating compliance should involve much more than simply ticking a box.”
“WCRS are great supporters of BIFM and our work in this sector. In addition to sponsoring this latest Good Practice Guide, they supported us in 2016 on our 10th annual Sustainability Report.”
