Zero Waste To Landfill
What is Zero Waste To Landfill? At its core, zero waste-to-landfill is exactly what it sounds like: diverting all wastes from landfill disposal.
Waste and Climate: Reducing Your Footprint
When it comes to addressing climate change, we normally think of carbon pollution from power plants, cars, and heating our homes and businesses. However, how we manage materials and waste has a big impact on the climate.
Health care suppliers, pharmaceutical manufacturers and other organizations often end up with defective, off-spec, returned or out-dated products and merchandise that must be securely destroyed. An added concern is how to handle waste that hasn’t yet been properly classified according to government regulatory standards or has an unclear MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). Companies often have very little storage space for such waste, and they need a solution that can meet all of their sensitive waste disposal needs.
Industrial companies produce both hazardous and non-hazardous wastewater because of their manufacturing and production systems, including wastewater that contains EPA listed and characteristic wastes. The treatment of this wastewater has become a key component to a profitable operation. Companies require a cost-effective effluent treatment solution that can help them manage their entire wastewater stream that meets all federal and local standards, and is environmentally-friendly.
Whether you’ve set a goal of zero waste, zero landfill, sustainable materials management (SMM), diversion or achieving a circular economy, the end results are similar; lower environmental impacts from how we manage waste and materials. Covanta can help you attract the most value from your waste resources, benefiting both the environment and your bottom line.
Our staff and facilities are prepared to receive, clean and dispose of tanks and other containers or vessels used to store hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.
Companies that produce packaged goods, from food to cleaning products, are now accountable for the full life cycle of their products, from production to disposal. The volume of waste they produce is substantial, and the majority of that waste consists of damaged, off-spec, expired or returned products. Costs have increased substantially, particularly for waste hauling and disposal. Companies need ways to manage their product destruction in an economical and responsible manner.
