The Waste Audit Manual includes
a step-by-step explanation on conducting a waste
audit, information on developing an education
plan, implementing the audit findings, usable
sample contract documents, guide to indoor/outdoor
recycling containers, how to finance, etc.
The District will take new steps to reach out to the commercial and industrial sectors to provide technical assistance for recycling, source reduction, reuse and composting. At a minimum, this will be accomplished by contracting, via a targeted mailing, local commercial businesses and industrial operations in order to offer waste audits. The District will target at least four commercial businesses and two industrial operations during each year of the planning period and offer waste audits. These audits will evaluate the waste streams of each business/industry, current disposal practices and costs, current recycling practices and costs, and make recommendations for recycling, source reduction, reuse and composting.
The audits will be offered at the expense of
the District and will be used to help businesses/industries
realize the costs savings associated with the
specific recommendations. The waste audits
will also include a marketing component to help
the business/industries identify outlets for
marketing recyclable materials or reusing the
materials. Waste audits will be offered
no later than the second year of the planning
