Cost Reduction Through Waste Reduction: Chapter 07: The Cost of Waste
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 7 of 12 for this video. The cost of waste has traditionally been thought of in term of how much it costs to dispose of the waste. However, there is much more to waste costs. For example, use of a solvent not only has the raw material waste associated with use, but there are air emission problems, storage space for liquids, handling time for disposal, record keeping and reporting, increased employee sick time, on-site and off-site liability, and production of poorer quality products all cost money and could potentially effect the bottom line.
