Recycling Pilot Programs
RTS engaged with on-site staff to evaluate recycling programs, including blue-wrap recycling, plastic film recycling and waste diversion. As part of the evaluation, RTS also defined sustainability reporting metrics to save employees’ time on program data entry and analysis. Once programs were refined, RTS developed and executed a pilot roll-out plan to ensure designated staff were trained and recycling was monitored to measure success.
Simplify Resourcing Requirements
Due to the expansive campus, the RTS mobile app notification significantly reduced the amount of time operations spent verifying contracted services were performed. In addition, RTS provided consolidated reporting and billing services, which eliminated challenges the team previously faced in gathering service documentation from multiple vendors.
Equipment and Maintenance Evaluation
RTS identified multiple waste containers and compactors that could be repaired, thus extending the life of existing equipment. As a result, maintenance schedules were updated, and the team avoided purchasing costly new equipment.
