    competitive industries.

Energy And Recycling

    viability of changing process to reduce waste.

14
More Production Area Issues
  • Is there a waste volume differential in other
    shifts?
  • Is more raw material used in one shift as opposed
    to another?
  • Are there standardized processes that can reduce
    waste or overuse of raw materials?
  • How is the housekeeping in the production area?

15
Dumpsters And Disposal Areas
  • Dumpster Dive perform a waste stream audit of
    materials disposed. The audit may be extensive
    or cursory, depending on the situation.

  • Are pulls on a regular schedule or on a
    per-call basis?
