Small Business Waste Audits

Businesses in Tucson can recycle too! In fact, most businesses have more materials to recycle than most home. If you are a City of Tucson commercial customer, ask us how recycling could save you money by scheduling a waste audit.

How Does it Work?

Though the word "audit" instills fear in many of us, a waste audit is actually easy, fun and interesting. You may schedule a waste audit for your business when it is most convenient for you. A typical waste audit will take only 30-minutes of your time, and will not impact your business functions or be visible to your customers. It is best to have a representative of your business on-hand for the audit who is most familiar with the facility and who can guide the waste auditor to various areas of your business where waste is generated. A friendly ES Representative will come to your business and help you identify the quantities and types of waste generated at your business that are fully recyclable in Tucson, and will make recommendations for easy ways to collect recyclables from the various areas in your business where they are generated.

If you are already a City of Tucson waste collection customer, the auditor can also provide you with estimated costs to add recycling collection at your business, based on information obtained during the audit. Keep in mind that in many instances, there is actually a reduction of monthly trash collection fees when recycling is added. Most businesses are very surprised at the total percentage of waste that is recyclable, and how easy and cost-effective it is to begin a recycling program.

The free waste audit is being offered to Environmental Services customers only. If you are interested in having a waste audit conducted at your business, please call Environmental Services Customer Service at 520-791-3171.
