Reduce and recycle waste

Rental companies deal with different kinds of waste. By sorting and recycling waste, they can reduce the need for natural resources, save energy and reduce pollution.

Suggested actions for rental companies:

  • Provide all depots with clearly labelled containers for different types of hazardous waste. Contain used oil in bunded tanks.
  • Demand one waste contractor to collect waste for recycling or licensed disposal such as oils and filters, batteries, ink cartridges, etc.
  • Ensure safe systems to handle the waste produced in during operations.
