1. Minimum Waste Generation
Businesses tend to generate large amounts of plastic or e-waste sometimes both, which becomes a hassle to manage for both the generator of the waste and the local municipal authorities.

2. Segregate your waste at source and store the plastic waste separately
Waste generated on-site are of different types, disposing and storing will be challenging. To make it easy for your business and employees having colour coded and labeled bin is the first step towards segregation of waste.
3. Train your employees and housekeeping staff to dispose of the waste responsibly
Employees and staff in your facility play a very important role in effective waste management. Training them and bringing the required awareness will significantly transform the way they approach a process that generates waste and that must be disposed of consciously.

4. Ensure that the housekeeping staff uses adequate safety measures while collecting
Waste accumulated often has mixed types of waste that could be potentially toxic or cause scrapes, cuts or release toxic emissions especially in the case of e-waste. The staff handling waste must be provided with safety gear such as PPE Kits, Gloves, Masks, Eye Goggles, Gumboots, and others based on the type of waste that they are exposed to on-site.
Adopting OH&S measures is a win-win for both your staff and your organisation.
