Waste Chem Pty Ltd

Since our firm is about resolving waste issues, we have to consider what kind of businesses are already out there trying to find solutions to the same problem. I have come across a firm called WasteChem which offers a variety of services

Their strong approach to waste minimisation and environmental responsibility has focused them to significantly reduce waste to landfill by enhancing the recovery of resources. They believe ‘reducing waste to landfill is not as complicated or expensive as some may have thought. By having in place a waste management program that addresses the needs and requirements of the site, now an din years to come many companies will release real cost savings and significantly improve their environmental footprint.

They believe that education is the key and at the commencement of any contract they will propose an education program that is supported throughout the full contract term. This could be linked back to the type of business model discussed from the 26th of June lecture about Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship. In order for this firm to create value, they have considered improving their customer relationship through this education program. Thus, creating an atmosphere of trust and acceptance between the people and the firm.

One of our firm’s goal is to create a relationship full of trust with our target market for us to be able to successfully contribute for the better of their lives. But before that, the people need to acknowledge the problem first and educate them with what they could do for their environment. This is the ‘Discover’ part of our mantra. Once we’ve gain their trust, it will be easier to present them our main focus. This is called the ‘Connect’ part of our mantra. Once they have acknowledged the problem, engaged with our firm for solutions now we can assist them in re-shaping their world, which is the third word in our mantra. ‘Discover. Connect. Shape.’

On their website, they have a subheading called ‘Smart Ideas’ and in here they talk about ways that anyone and everyone should consider to contribute a little for the better of the environment. These ideas are categorised under Re-Think. Re-Use, Recycle.


  • Don’t print e-mails unless if it is necessary
  • ALways buy recycled packaging
  • Print “only” the page you need, not the entire document
  • Does it need to be replaced “NOW”?
  • Cardboard Packaging
  • Metal and plastic drums
  • Manila Folders
  • Use refillable printer cartridges where possible
  • Office paper
  • Printer cartridges
  • computers
  • Aluminum cans
  • Plastic bottles
  • Shrink wrap
  • Standard pallets
  • Waste oils
  • Gunwash Thinners
They have recommend placing recycling bins under desks of officeses for the recovery of office paper which coudl be then emptied out in larger bins and sent for recycling (which I believe many organisations, schools and other workplaces have now acquired) and also plastic recycling bins in lunch rooms for plastic bottles.
