Quick Tips to Deal with Manufacturing Waste

industrial waste collection

Even if you aren’t known to be the “citizen of the world”, it’s now essential that you take steps that harvest benefits to the environment; and this, both on personal and professional level. Because, with the rising concerns of global warming and pollution, governments around the world have come up with strict guidelines that even facilitate penalizing those who go against the trend. So, the onus lies big on manufacturers, of diverse industries, who are often (rightly) accused of emitting pollution with no checks and balances. Hence, in case, if you’re one of such manufacturers, still running loose with least concern for the world’s sustainability, it’s time now you buck up.

Now “buck up” doesn’t mean you wind up your business and look for a ‘green alternative’ to meet your (and your family’s) ends. For manufacturers, dealing with industrial waste is easier than ever. In fact, it just requires few tweaks here and there-nothing necessarily too big that can hinder the business. The first step in the process is measuring the waste your plant is producing; unless you know that, how will you limit the required margin of waste emission. So, get to know about the amount of waste you’re producing. Next step is knowing how much you need to curb. Just check out the guidelines of your local government, you will get the answer.

Move on to fix the “leakages” of your manufacturing plant. Make sure it’s working at its optimum best. Next, hire a reputed industrial waste disposal company and also, at the same time, take up good organic waste management practices. Alongside, here are few other steps to take:

Limit the number of packaging and plastic usage
Recycle items that can be recycled
Install large and separate green bins for recycling and disposal
Cut back on the use of natural resources; for electricity, use solar power
Look for opportunities to reuse waste
Invest money to keep the machinery and equipment in the best working condition

These small measures, in the end, can make a big difference, eventually turning you into an environment-conscious business owner.

Broken a Fluorescent Tube? These Best Cleaning Practices Will Keep You Safe

LS350 Lockable Container

Using a fluorescent tube or CFL light is becoming very common with households, corporate areas as well as commercial areas all over the world. The fact that it saves energy by 75% or more compared to an ordinary incandescent bulb is extremely attractive people who are genuinely worried about the environment. However, not many of us can deny that these innovative lighting solutions, amazing as they may be, are also prone to cracking and breaking, which is usually not considered a very happy scheme of things.

Besides being more expensive than their regular yellow counterparts, CFLs and other fluorescent lighting systems contain a certain amount of mercury which gets instantly released into the air when these lights shatter. Exposure to mercury poisoning bears many health risks that are best when avoided. This is one of the reasons why people are usually seen to panic when a mini accident as this takes place. Taking a clue or two from the experts, users facing such accidents can actually clean up the mess with no health damage at all.

Basically when the bulb / fluorescent tube breaks, users should have the area cleared instantly. If it is a household, pets, children and other members should stay away from the area. Airing the room by opening all windows and preferably switching on the ceiling fan at moderate speed is advised. Covering nose and mouth is also a good decision to stay on the safer side of things. Once the room is amply aired, the glass debris needs to be collected. Vacuuming is never advised for picking up debris for fluorescent bulbs. It is always better to use a carpet brush and plastic dust collector to pick the pieces, put it in a thick plastic / paper bag and dispose it in a safe disposal area.

The rest will be taken care of by the fluorescent tubes recycling units that are equipped to rid any remaining traces of mercury from the glass and put the material to fresh use. Basically, there is not much reason to panic on cracking or breaking a fluorescent tube or CFL light bulb considering the fact that the manufacturers of these options are really turning down on the amount of mercury that they use in the same. While the content may vary depending upon the size of the bulbs, they are never too toxic to cause worrisome results. So, unless you break a whole carton of these, all you need to take care of is the broken shards of glass and safe disposal of the same.
