Our friends at AbsorbTech, one of the largest industrial laundries in the country, sat down with Wade Spurlin, Environmental Coordinator at Romeo RIM, and talked with him about Waste Minimization Plans.
Wade is an integral part of the Romeo RIM team and is responsible for environmental programs that assure compliance for Title V, RCRA, Storm water, and environmental permits, as well as the ISO 14001 environmental management system.
Here’s a snippet from that conversation:
Our facility is on a 26-acre rural site where nature is all around us – turkey crossings, deer, ponds, etc. so it is easy to see how our activities impact our environment. Most of our employees have a natural appreciation for the environment because it’s right at our back door.
We also tie it to dollars. Waste = Money. Non-Compliance = Money. Safety = Money. Making the connection to cost savings always seems to resonate with people.
