How does it work?

Waste management audit

We visit your waste generation site and conduct a total waste management audit looking at all your waste streams and affected areas and devise a solution that is personalised to your specific on-site waste management needs.

Sample assessment

We assess a waste stream sample taken from your site to determine the most suitable disposal solution.

Bins provided

We supply you with all the necessary bins you will need for on-site containment of your waste.

On-site labour

From janitors who execute a cleaning and waste sorting portfolio to automotive cleaning robots and high-capability operators who operate heavy machinery and equipment, we provide you with the necessary staff to expertly execute your bespoke on-site solution.

On-site machinery

If your site is spacious enough to accommodate heavy machinery, we supply the necessary equipment, such as bailers or smaller blending platforms, for on-site handling of waste before a certified Averda vehicle moves the waste off-site for recycling, landfill diversion, or to one of our treatment facilities for expertly managed disposal.

Staff training

We offer tailor-made on-site staff training, ensuring your employees are fully equipped with the knowledge of how to correctly handle your waste, from canteen waste through to high-hazardous waste.

Our on-site waste management solutions assist you in achieving your zero-waste to landfill, waste-minimisation, and sustainability targets. We ensure your business waste is responsibly handled to the highest level of compliance with environmental and human safety legislation.

We have a division set up specifically for on-site management, with highly trained staff, that are aligned to your specific requirements based on your on-site waste management solution. This ensures a collaborative engagement with you throughout the whole process.
