Waste management software: why use it in my company?

Existing legislation provides that companies dispose of their waste in a way that has the least possible impact on the environment. In order to comply with the legislation, it is necessary for the company to prepare a Solid Waste Management Plan. The plan foresees the handling, treatment and final destination of the waste, including keeping the documents that show the waste disposal.

The manual control of this information is laborious, subject to errors and loss of evidence in cases of environmental audits. For this, investing in technology in its waste management, mainly in digitalization, optimizes the entire process, in addition to significantly reducing waste and costs within the company.

The technology assists in total management control, automatically generating legal documents and reports, managing suppliers, managing licenses, conditions and other documents related to waste management.

Thus, everyone involved in management works in a systematic and organized manner, increasing the efficiency of waste management. The follow-ups can be done in a totally safe and online environment, which allows for the agility of the processes and a series of benefits such as:
