What Is A
Zero Waste Audit & Composition Study?

A Zero Waste Audit & Composition Study represents a baseline waste reduction assessment, focusing on measuring the amount of material discards generated by a facility over ‌time, as well as characterizing its composition.

The HSR Zero Waste staff will collect, sort, and weigh a representative sample of the waste generated by the facility to record its quantities and types of materials. We develop a deep analysis of the findings in a facilities assessment containing feedback from our zero waste experts.

This facilities assessment measures the effectiveness of the facility’s separate collection program. We collect the data to identify opportunities for intervention toward better resource management, waste reduction, cost savings, and the adoption of zero waste practices.

A primarily qualitative waste reduction review or Zero Waste Facility Assessment complements a Zero Waste Composition Study. Together, these baseline facilities assessments represent a facility’s current level of performance, creating a basis from which to document the facility’s progress toward zero waste‌.
