A practical guide to reduce your business waste and save you money

This guide has been designed by Westcountry Rivers Trust to help reduce the impact businesses can have on plastics entering our environment. The simple tools and templates within apply to all waste streams and all business types.

There is no ‘one-way fits all’ approach to business waste reduction. At its core it is about examining how business is undertaken and identifying the significant flows of waste and raw materials.  There are many techniques that can be used – this guide gives our interpretation of a few of them.
