How can my business achieve Zero waste to landfill status?

A landfill is essentially a receptacle for waste that can’t be recycled or incinerated. It is the most inefficient form of waste management, as rubbish can sit on a landfill and decompose for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.

“Zero to landfill” is a waste-management concept that describes the total diversion of waste away from landfills. Zero waste to landfill methods build on the practices outlined under the Waste Hierarchy, placing the most value on waste reduction and the least on waste disposal.

How can waste management be improved?

At Axil, our total waste management approach is based on the waste management hierarchy: reduce, reuse, recycle, recovery and disposal.

These steps outline how waste should be treated, with waste reduction having the highest priority and disposal the lowest. We recommend integrating these practices into your business to improve your waste management outcomes.
