Waste Management & Recycling

A growing number of Australian businesses are actively making a positive change to the impact that their operations have on the environment.

Partnering with ZIFS to conduct an organised waste management and recycling program in your premises will enhance the performance of the cleaning services that we are providing for you. Through increased recycling efforts, the carbon footprint of your business can be lowered and in turn, achieve a reduction in disposal costs.

Working Together For A Cleaner Future

At ZIFS we are committed to reducing the volume of waste that is being dumped in landfill. By working with local businesses, we are increasing participation in recycling programs. Together, we are contributing to a cleaner, greener future.

Your Client Services Manager will already have a good understanding about your business and your cleaning requirements. As part of establishing your waste management and recycling program, we will assess the materials that you are using in your business by conducting a free waste audit. This process helps us to determine the best way to meet your recycling targets. Then, we will design a tailored system that will make recycling easy for your team.

Clients across a host of sectors are benefitting from having us manage their recycling needs. We are well-experienced in supporting healthcare providers including medical centres, doctor’s clinics, and hospitals to safely manage bio-waste, pharmaceutical and medical waste.

We assist businesses in the hospitality industry, in retail, and in entertainment centres. Aged care facilities, schools, and government and council offices are also enjoying our easy to use waste systems. The colour coded bins that we install make it simple to know which materials or waste products can be placed inside for proper disposal. Whether you need bins for general waste, dry and co-mingled recycling, food and garden organic waste, electronic waste, or confidential shredding, we have got you covered.

To help you to understand how to correctly sort your waste and dispose of each item, we will fully train your staff and provide mentoring about the recycling processes.

Measure It To Management It

We will provide you with comprehensive reports that capture your business’ recycling and waste information. Using this data, your organisation will be able to see how your dedication to increasing your recycling is lessening your environmental impact. The reports can be based on cost centre volumes, waste by volume and weight, recycling by volume, types of waste, types of recycling, and disposal costs, to ensure you get the full assessment of your efforts.

By recycling just one tonne of paper over the course of your cleaning program, you will have saved more than four cubic metres of landfill waste. By slowing the production of new, uncoated office paper, you will have spared numerous resources: around 24 trees, more than two barrels of oil, more than 40,000 kilowatt hours of electricity, and more than 30,000 litres of water.

Recycling one tonne of steel cans saves 800kg of greenhouse gases. Making aluminium cans from used cans requires 95 per cent less energy than making them from the raw bauxite. And, as crushed glass melts at lower temperatures than using raw materials including sand, limestone, and soda ash, recycling glass cuts the use of energy resources by 30 per cent.
