Two things you're likely to find in an automotive workshop:
1. A radio blasting hits from the 80's and
2. All kinds of waste management challenges.

With mechanics working across all kinds of jobs on a daily basis, it's no surprise that fluids, engine oils, hydraulic oils and more are a regular waste byproduct. In the same way that a tyre, automotive or mechanic's workshop has strict workplace health and safety guidelines related to visible safety hazards, they also require a waste management plan that protects against the risk of improper waste disposal.

What kind of waste is generated in the automotive, tyre and mechanics industries?

There's a whole suite of waste that's generated in the everyday operations of the automotive, tyre and mechanical industries. These include...

  • Metal waste - generated via scrap metal, used parts and metal shavings
  • Plastic waste - this is regularly generated in the production of vehicles
  • Hazardous waste - such as oils, batteries, brake fluids and more
  • Rubber waste - commonly arising from used tyres, scraps and manufacturing waste
  • Electronic waste - this can arise from vehicles when they're scrapped
  • Glass waste - commonly occurring from broken windshields and windows
  • Paint and solvent waste - regularly arising from the painting and coating processes

With a wide range of industry regulations impacting the manners in which this waste can be disposed of, every workshop must have a thorough waste management plan in place.

Managing industry-related waste

A proactive approach to automotive, tyre and mechanical waste can help to simplify the overall waste management process. There's a number of steps that can be taken in order to make everyday waste management easier for business owners and employees alike.

Waste reduction

The first step in your waste management plan? Look at reducing the amount of waste you need to manage in the first place!

Evaluating your current workshop practices may create opportunities for waste minimisation at the source. By using more efficient processes and reducing the use of certain materials, you can look to minimise the amount of waste generated throughout the course of everyday operations.

Increase recycling

Much of the waste that's generated in a mechanical or automotive workshop can be recycled, including metals, rubber and plastic. In fact, Redooo's easy waste management services can help you to increase your business sustainability without creating extra workloads for you or your team.
