In addition to optimizing operations in a 24/7 world, managers in the industrial sector also have to worry about ever-changing environmental regulations across the industry and making wise business moves to remain profitable in a competitive playing field.
Taking the time to implement an integrated waste solutions strategy can help significantly reduce operational costs, optimize production flows and achieve environmental compliance.
Our team at NWA helps you do exactly that by combining our 200+ years of collective industry experience and 4 generations of working with industrial plants with our extensive range of waste solution services. We’re more than a waste provider, we’re your waste partner.
Cut Down on Operational Costs by Minimizing Waste
Cutting operational costs is a smart business move. In the industrial world, it can be done through the use of energy-efficient lighting in your facilities, investing in preventative maintenance, or boosting employee productivity. It can be realized by implementing efficient material handling systems and equipment and effective waste strategies like waste minimization.
In fact, 7.6 billion tons of non-hazardous industrial solid waste is created and disposed of in the U.S. each year [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency]. Paired with increasing costs of raw materials and disposal fees, the industrial sector needs real solutions to minimize their waste production to avoid paying for resources when purchasing and again when disposing.
Our experienced team at NWA can help your facility drive significant operational cost savings through waste minimization, especially when paired with source reduction strategies. We are different from other waste providers as we continuously analyze your waste streams to discover the best strategy for cutting your operational and labor costs.
Ensure Environmental Compliance
Did you know that more than 30% of all waste on Earth comes from the U.S. even though we only account for 4% of the world population? Additionally, 1/3 of landfill contents consists of packaging materials like those produced by industrial processes.
Sending your process residuals and other raw materials to the landfill won’t only burn a hole in your wallet - but can also land you in big (and expensive) trouble with environmental law, since the handling of the industry’s waste is governed by many different laws and regulations.
In the hectic day-to-day schedule of the industrial sector, it’s not necessarily an easy task to stay up to date with local and federal environmental waste policies that seem to be in a constant state of flux.
That’s why our team at NWA does it for you. We not only provide you with waste solutions, but also work side-by-side with your team, analyzing and tracking your waste materials to ensure they are handled properly, all the while keeping you compliant.
Reduce, Reuse and Profit from Process Residuals
The industrial sector handles an extremely varied range of raw materials. In a time when Earth’s natural resources are increasingly in short supply - it’s more important than ever to reduce and even reuse wherever possible.
Our team at NWA recognizes simply discarding these valuable resources is no longer an option, especially in the midst of a growing popularity of corporate sustainability strategies like ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) and the growing movement toward a circular economy.
Our sustainable solutions help industrial clients keep their resources in use for as long as possible, extracting the maximum value from them while in use, then recovering and regenerating materials at the end of their service life.
We don’t only work hard to save you money, but we can also isolate recyclables from your waste streams and develop profit streams from post-industrial materials, whenever possible.
