What is a Zero Waste Consultant?

What is a Zero Waste Consultant? In this short video, we introduce you the concept and how he or she can bring value to your business to ensure the best use of resources. Remember that your trash should be someone else’s treasure.

Every facility, small or large, generate waste. It can be anything from the lunchbox at the canteen, to the broken pallet in the warehouse, or the by-products of a manufacturing process.

In every facility, there are infrastructures to manage waste. They can be as simple as a wheelie bin pushed by the cleaner to a sophisticated system to collect and condition discards. From there, the discards are handed over to a waste collector.

Waste management has a cost, requires manpower, and is a visible sign of inefficiency for a business. The more waste a business generates, the more inefficient it is. That’s where a Zero Waste Consultant can help.

A Zero Waste Consultant is a professional specialised in the optimisation of the use of materials in a business and who has the skills and knowledge to help a business achieving Zero Waste goals. During a waste audit, his role is to identify opportunities to save money, minimise waste, and create value from the discards.

For instance, the Zero Waste Consultant might

  • Assess the viability of a digester to recycle the organic waste of a shopping mall,
  • Investigate reusable packaging and pallets for a logistics company,
  • Identify alternative consumables in a resort,
  • Initiate partnerships between organisations to reuse unsold goods,
  • And a lot more.

Your trash should be someone else’s treasure; a Zero Waste Consultant helps you to identify those opportunities.
