Facility Waste and Recycling Management

Wanless is committed to supporting the facility and property sector through the provision of reliable waste collections that deliver strong environmental performance to meet your building or portfolio’s sustainability goals, including NABERS ratings. Managing waste services across multiple tenancies, buildings and stakeholders including visitors, tenants and cleaners can be a complex environment. Wanless makes it simple, providing customised solutions that drive successful environmental outcomes. We assist you to manage your waste more effectively and inline with your annual budgets.

Our account managers are experienced across the facility and property sector – providing your business with a “Total Waste Management Solution”. We effectively bundle all your waste, recycling, liquid waste, medical and hygiene services into ONE simple-to-manage contract – saving you time and cost managing multiple vendors. Wanless works strategically in partnership to assess, manage and continuously improve the performance of the contract through the term.

Our project management process

Facility Management 2


We commence by assessing your portfolio via a detailed waste assessment or physical waste audit to determine waste stream identification, waste destination mapping from source to disposal, waste diversion opportunities, equipment and collections requirements, your staff’s current awareness of recycling and culture and contamination levels. This gives us a baseline of current environmental performance. Our staff can also provide a detailed cost analysis, highlighting savings with a new Wanless offer.

We use our detailed assessment to identify the simplest, cost-effective and labour-intensive processes to separate at the source, collect and dispose of waste & recycling throughout your facility. During the execution stage we may change equipment – ensuring its use is specific to your requirements, is colour-coded to Australian standards and has matching signage. We also ensure you are adequately set up to separate recycling at the source – maximising recovery whilst minimising landfill disposal.

We support the facility and property sector with an effective engagement program that promotes awareness and encourages good recycling practices and outcomes across your portfolio – as we believe it is critical to achieving your environmental targets and to maintaining building ratings. We provide innovative activities that promote source separation, a greater level of awareness of your building or portfolio’s environmental goals, an understanding of the correct waste handling procedures, understanding contamination and the role everyone plays at work in an away-from-home recycling program. We also engage with your onsite cleaning teams, as they often handle more than 65% of total waste – collecting it from tenancies, as well as transporting waste and recycling to its final disposal destination in the dock.

We provide a suite of monthly reports so we can monitor the environmental performance of the contract and ensure continuous improvement throughout the term. Our reporting suite allows customers of all sizes either at a single site view, state view or national view to better understand financial costs per month as well as recycling rates by stream. We use reporting as a discussion point in monthly meetings to pinpoint contract performance, and we use gap analysis and recycling results to analyse changes to drive further improvement. Reporting can reveal trends across locations with the ability to benchmark sites of similar size and output, as well as an understanding of staff culture for a targeted engagement campaign.

Wanless can also provide assistance with onsite Waste management staff who are dedicated to resource recovery, dock management, managing collections and working alongside your tenants with engagement activities. By investing in dedicated resources your recycling results improve and that of the recycling culture across the building or portfolio as our staff are highly qualified and experienced with customer engagement.
