Waste and recycling in the circular economy

Promoting transparency, insights, and action

One key challenge for businesses in addressing waste is staying current with solid waste and recycling requirements at the local, state, and federal levels. Our RUBICONRegWatch™ application provides a one-stop solution: Digital libraries to help businesses comply with regulations specific to their locations through a single platform.

The software-as-a-service (SaaS) tool translates complex guidelines into simple, easy-to-follow language. It also helps users audit their businesses against evolving waste-related regulations. Whether companies operate in multiple jurisdictions or have distinct types of worksites such as warehouses and retail stores within their portfolio, RUBICONRegWatch™ tracks the legal obligations relevant to their waste streams so they can turn those insights into action.

We also provide customers with a clear sense of how their waste diversion efforts reduce their net carbon emissions and environmental impact. This supports them as they evaluate their own environmental impact efforts. To do so, we use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Waste Reduction Model (WARM), a trusted calculation tool.20 WARM takes a baseline scenario for a given organization and compares it against an alternative waste management practice such as source reduction, recycling, anaerobic digestion, waste-to-energy, and/or composting.21 With this analysis, an organization can quickly see how much carbon emissions it avoids by adopting an alternative to landfilling.
