BIFM Updates Recycling & Waste Management Guide

facilities-managementThe British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has published a revised edition of its ‘Good Practice Guide to Recycling and Waste Management’.

The new guide explores the key drivers and principles behind recycling and waste management best practice and offers practical tips and considerations for facilities management professionals looking to improve their recycling and waste management strategy.

“Not only has waste and recycling become increasingly regulated over the last decade but, as part of CSR (corporate social responsibility) organisations are realising the true value of taking a more effective approach by relying on an expert and experienced waste management partner to keep them ahead of the game.”

The guide considers the “Green Agenda” and good environmental practice as well as the extensive legislative requirements in this area.

BIFM research and information executive Annie Horsley said: “Businesses are under increasing pressure from all directions to ensure their waste and recycling practices stand up to scrutiny and FMs are at the forefront of helping to reduce an organisation’s impact on the environment, meet legislation and manage waste in the most cost effective way.

“The principles of good practice and sustainable waste management include economic value, environmental value and social value; by embracing these principles and taking a proactive approach there are significant savings to be made – demonstrating compliance should involve much more than simply ticking a box.”

RecyclingandWasteManagement-211x300Tony Windsor, managing director at WCRS, added: “Facilities management professionals have an increasingly complex challenge when it comes to their recycling and waste management operations and practices.

“Not only has waste and recycling become increasingly regulated over the last decade but, as part of CSR (corporate social responsibility) organisations are realising the true value of taking a more effective approach by relying on an expert and experienced waste management partner to keep them ahead of the game.

“WCRS are pleased to be working with BIFM and supporting the Good Practice Guide, providing an invaluable reference of the current issues and considerations for all FMs across all sectors of industry.”
