Why reduce or prevent dangerous waste?

Creating, managing, and disposing of dangerous waste costs your business money. The less waste you generate, the less you have to manage and pay to dispose of.

Preventing waste may also help your business:

  • Increase worker safety and satisfaction.
  • Reduce complex regulatory overhead.
  • Avoid waste spills and costly cleanups.
  • Reduce cost of waste treatment and disposal.
  • Decrease liability now and in the future.

Last, but not least, your business can stand out from the competition by offering less toxic products. Consumers are increasingly looking for products and services that use fewer toxic chemicals and have little impact on the environment.
