The audit must go beyond measuring the quantity of waste and identifying its composition, to identifying the underlying reasons and operational factors for waste generation.
Under the regulation, all waste audits must address:
- the amount, nature and composition of the waste generated in all Functional areas of an establishment;
- how the waste is produced, including relevant management policies and Practices; and
- how the waste is managed.
Developing a Waste Reduction Work Plan
The information from the waste audit is the basis for developing the waste Reduction work plan. The work plan addresses 3Rs opportunities to be Implemented.
Regulation 102/94 requires that all completed waste reduction work plans must include all reasonable actions that can be taken. These actions must follow the 3Rs hierarchy, with reduction as first priority, followed by reuse, and then recycling.
