    Wastage within a company who can do more to better themselves

    I work for a construction company in the UK who employ round 1000 people.

    There is potential for them to save between £1000.00 to £100,000.00 per year from reducing wastage.

    • Reduce paper usage
    • Reduce colour printing
    • Upgrading software & hardware that is at least 5 years old.
    • Reuse/recycle unused materials fron construction (wow alot of money can be saved like at least 5% of a build)
    • Reuse/recycle office supply (had there been storage space, no need for items to go in bin and to buy again later.) 100% saving potential.
    So what is it like in your company? Has there/will there be any improvements in your company?

    Do you know what kind of studies can be done for reducing waste amount.
    Reducing cartoon, pallet, nylon waste.
    for example out suppliers use cartoon boxes and nylon bags for our raw materials. If I say them don't use or reduce the box amount, what is the alternative way for cartoon boxes? For example if they don't use nylon bags for plastic parts, plastic parts can have quality problems.
    do you know any studies about this?
