CitySwitch Waste Assessment Tool

CitySwitch has a simple waste assessment tool that gives you a snapshot of what is going in your bins, such as take away coffee cups, and provides a report outlining solutions for your office.

  • An Executive Summary detailing:
    • current waste generation and recycling rates
    • recycling potential
    • the composition of your waste   
  • An Action Plan with specific actions tailored to your office
  • A detailed overview of your waste generation by waste stream and location
  • A contamination and leakage overview identifying areas of improvement

Please note this tool was updated in October 2022.
