The Challenge

To assist a large defense contractor to solve and manage their waste management for multiple sites across the U.S. Heritage sought a management process that provided an aggregate cost savings, while adhering to strict regulatory compliance.


Heritage was able to develop a comprehensive waste plan that included complete transparency for compliance and audits utilizing our customer portal. We also started providing proper employee education in waste management procedures and regulatory requirements. Accurate reporting became the standard as well as streamlining the waste management plan for all active sites.


The new waste management plans created better visibility for site and corporate personnel, allowing sites to formulate an overall logistics analysis. Customized waste management strategies for all active sites were accomplished via a single point of contact provided by Heritage for this national account.


The customized solution developed for this customer improved compliance for all active sites. Additionally, corporate sustainability goals were met while providing significant savings on waste disposal and transportation. Heritage’s reputation for building a waste program that meets the overall goals of the customer held true once again.
