Being LEAN is a continuous process, a methodology that sustains growth. It never stops and you can always find ways to adopt continuous improvements to waste management.
When was the last time you conducted a time in motion study?
When was the last time you conducted a time in motion study to rid yourself of the redundant and wasteful motions of the everyday tasks? For instance, the innocent indoor waste bin or under desk indoor recycling bins.
- How many of these bins are your cleaning force emptying every day?
- How many man-hours does it take?
- What does this one simple task cost?
- Can this cost be better invested elsewhere?
Is there a better way?
Using the principles of 5S as a benchmark of 'what good would look like' then yes, there is. Why have a multitude of bins when you can have one?
Bins have evolved and now offer solutions for you to better manage your waste. A growing number of businesses are now opting for recycling stations for offices, communal breakout areas, staff restaurants or office kitchens. Here are just some examples.
