Integrated Waste Analyst’s (IWA) professionals can analyze and improve any business’s waste stream through a detailed waste stream audit.

Integrated Waste Analysts offers clients with an additional level of waste analysis surpassing other was disposal programs. This program takes a deeper look into a client’s waste stream and breaks the waste down into individual materials and weights in a custom report.

How does a waste audit work?

Pie Chart

A waste audit is a breakdown, study, and analysis of a client’s waste stream. They are performed at the client’s location by taking a sample of waste from their collection bin. IWA professionals then sift through this waste, sorting it into over 30 different material types. All items and materials are then weighted and recorded so that a report can be generated. After the completion of a waste audit, IWA employees will load the waste back into the collection bin so that it can be picked up by the regular vendor.

Notice: It is required that if you use a trash compactor that a days worth of waste is held aside from the compactor for auditing.
