Reduce Storage & Logistic Waste Costs


    Warehouse Waste Management Programs Reduce Storage & Logistic Waste Costs

    In warehouses and storage facilities, waste and recycling materials can accumulate from the many huge shipments received. It is not uncommon for items to be repacked into smaller units before leaving the storage or distribution facility again. The resulting bulky cardboard boxes and plastic packaging material waste can accumulate quickly and require space to be stored before being sent to waste disposal facilities.

    In many facilities the standard operating processes involve collecting the packaging waste and carrying it outside to large dumpsters, to be hauled away by waste collection companies. Although this procedure does move solid waste away from the floor, it also takes team member time from more important tasks. Many companies are looking for warehouse and logistics waste management solutions that will reduce costs and improve efficiency in waste management logistics.

    Waste Reduction Lowers Waste Costs

    As a manager of a warehouse and logistics center or related type of facility, you can gain a number of other key advantages from warehouse waste management programs that reduce the generation of waste:

    • More floor space – Shipping, packaging, and inventory waste takes up valuable room that could be used for more productive purposes. There is an opportunity cost when floor space is used for waste storage rather than offsetting the cost of carrying inventory.
    • Increased workplace safety – Storing excess waste in the work environment can also pose a health risk to employees in the facility, especially if these materials are piled up in a haphazard manner. Compaction units and baled recyclables minimize waste, keeping floors clear and reducing the risk of workplace injuries.
    • Regulatory compliance – Depending on the nature of the materials you handle, failure to manage hazardous waste properly can violate local or federal regulations, which in turn could mean heavy fines. GTS can help you with required composting of materials and diverting plastic products and recyclables to meet your regulatory responsibilities.
    • Growing a green reputation – Sustainability and waste reduction initiatives are important to customer relationships and your warehouse and logistics business reputation. Having a green reputation and action plans to protect natural resources can help you increase sales as well as reduce the cost of waste handling.
