Waste and Recycling Monitoring and Reporting

Managing waste and recycling in buildings requires effective monitoring and reporting processes. This should have the following characteristics:
  • Waste generation should be tracked
  • Waste recycling should be tracked
  • Water generation and recycling should be normalised so that it can be compared with benchmarks and other buildings of a similar type.
  • Water generation and recycling figures should be tracked and presented for a full year
  • Water generation and recycling patterns for the previous year as well as the current year should be presented in order to ascertain whether there are improvements. 
  • Reports should be presented in a simple format so that senior managers and non-technical staff can easily understand these. 
Gauge has developed a system that achieves the above characteristics and is easy to use. The reporting system is available to subscribers and be accessed here. It also supports reporting on energy consumption, water consumption, travel impacts and indoor environmental quality (IEQ).
