WASTE COMPOSITION & GENERATION STUDIES

KCI KNOWS YOUR TRASH!

 

 

 

KCI is a leader in conducting waste and recyclables composition studies, as well as generation studies. Understanding the composition of what is still being disposed is the first step in developing and implementing successful waste diversion programs.

KCI conducts composition studies throughout North America, and has conducted more sorts in the Southeast than any other firm. We also help our clients utilize the study results. Waste composition results are used to identify practical, economically viable programmatic and operational changes to increase waste diversion and achieve higher recycling rates. Recyclables study results are used to evaluate contamination levels and to develop revenue formulas that allow clients to equitably share in commodity market values.

Whether the study is large in scope or small – from countywide composition studies to individual business waste audits – KCI has the experience and expertise to design a study that meets your objectives and budget.

“Through the results of these audits, we have been given the tools we need to promote waste reduction on our campus, and continue toward our zero waste commitments. We believe that their creativity and knowledge of waste auditing strategies helped lead to these successes.”
