Waste Land: A Look at How Central Arizona Project Leverages Technology to Better Manage Waste Streams

by | Sep 25, 2019

Managing various hazardous and universal waste streams throughout your company’s footprint can present numerous challenges and risks, including knowing what is onsite, how long it has been onsite, and managing shipping and disposal costs. For decades, companies have relied on paper forms, spreadsheets, and emails to manage the complex process of tracking and shipping waste streams offsite, which has resulted in inefficiencies, increased costs, and for some, regulatory violations.

  • What to look for when evaluating environmental and waste management solutions
