by definition, Waste is everything that is not used in human activities, from industries, businesses and residences. solid waste, as the name says, are unused materials that are in the solid state.
“Current leaders have a critical role in waste management, due to the direct and indirect impacts that they can cause in the respective countries. Nonetheless, Waste management is no longer an issue that governments could resolve internally in an integrated manner.: waste and poverty, waste and international market, waste and social movements, waste and politics, waste and economy, waste and technology, are examples of relationships that give waste a structural complexity that goes beyond the borders of each country. ” (Martin and Gonçalves, 2000, p.15).
The Importance and Achievement of Management
Organizations are continually charged, both by government bodies and by society, for safer and more sustainable practices from an environmental point of view. Increasingly growing demands for commitments to the Environment are no longer required only by legal requirement, and are now demanded by customers and stakeholders as part of the company's day-to-day practices.
Thus, following our vision of contributing to sustainable development, and fulfilling our mission of advising clients in the area of environment and sustainability, through integrated and effective solutions, it is with great success that we announce that biO3 offers the Waste Management service, working in the fields of agriculture, industry and retail.
Waste Management involves mapping a company's processes, the analysis, classification and quantification of waste generated by each process, the storage and identification, and the destination. Strategic ways to deal with each waste are studied and developed, respecting its characteristics and the norms of this process.
The main objectives are to minimize the negative impacts resulting from the generation of waste in the environment, addressing business challenges, to avoid unexpected costs and penalties that could lead to the unfeasibility of the business.
The National Solid Waste Policy (PNRS), Lei nº 12.305/2010, determines that the management of waste generated, both natural and legal persons, needs to ensure maximum reuse and recycling, as well as the reduction of waste, which are the materials that are not technically and economically viable for the recycling process.
Thus, in partnership with Pevidor Consultoria we have a Waste Management System (SGR), that provides a series of benefits and advantages for effective management at all stages of management. Pevidor Consultoria e Gestão Empresarial aims to provide consultancy in the areas of quality, safety, health, environment and food safety, in addition to developing, improve and automate Management Tools and Spreadsheets.
Control and validity of environmental licenses, continuous updating of the waste inventory generated by the company and management of waste stocks are just some of the benefits of the SGR.
When dealing with waste management, it is necessary to remember the Solid Waste Management Plan, regulated by Law no. 12.305/2010, a technical document that identifies the typology and quantity of generation of each type of waste and indicates the environmentally correct forms of handling. the most attractive, in corporate eyes, is the advantage of allowing the company to profit from the waste generated in the enterprise. The document and the recent approval by CETESB that establishes the Term of Reference for the elaboration of the PGRS are better explained in terms of structure and objectives in the latest content published by biO3, available at the link. It is worth mentioning, combining the dots, that we are able to help and verify the situation of the enterprise, whether or not it qualifies as obliged to prepare the Plan.
Another set of documents that deserves due attention and in which we can help is the PGRSS, Health Service Waste Management Plan, which also present actions required by environmental agencies and health surveillance by waste generators from any establishment linked to the health area. It aims to minimize or eliminate the generation of waste, and ensure its correct routing, for the protection of workers, of the environment and public health (for this there is the obligation of monitoring from generation to final disposal of waste, evaluating the possible risks).
A FRAMES, issued by CETESB and the CONAMA Inventory 313, are other documents, in addition to instruments, of environmental interest that address the referral, characteristics and final disposal of waste produced.
