To close the loop on as many commodities as possible and support a local zero waste economy.
Implement a process where as much material as possible from the facility is taking advantage of local reuse, recycling, or upcycling options. Buy back or use products or materials made from your materials.
Assess opportunities in local markets for reuse, recycling or upcycling of materials generated on site. Your operation may generate different waste that can be turned around easily into a new product locally. Set up agreements with the local companies or organizations that provide these services. Develop a policy or standard practice to ensure the new products or materials they produce come back on site.
- Narrative of which company(s) waste goes to and how it is closing the loop and coming back on site.
- Documentation verifying agreements with local companies or organizations such as contracts, agreements, invoices, or official letter outlining the relationship. Documentation will also need to be provided showing acquirement of products or materials (receipts, invoices).
