In warehouses and storage facilities, waste and recycling materials can accumulate from the many huge shipments received. It is not uncommon for items to be repacked into smaller units before leaving the storage or distribution facility again. The resulting bulky cardboard boxes and plastic packaging material waste can accumulate quickly and require space to be stored before being sent to waste disposal facilities.
In many facilities the standard operating processes involve collecting the packaging waste and carrying it outside to large dumpsters, to be hauled away by waste collection companies. Although this procedure does move solid waste away from the floor, it also takes team member time from more important tasks. Many companies are looking for warehouse and logistics waste management solutions that will reduce costs and improve efficiency in waste management logistics.
