Role of Facility Management in Effective Waste Management and Energy Efficiency

by Enviro Vatika Enviro facility Management

Effective facility management entails the development of processes that meet the desired goals, cut costs, and save energy. One goal of facility management is to simplify waste management while enhancing energy efficiency. To achieve the goals, you need a clear procedure or a guide that outlines the A to Z of the steps facility management staff has to take. 

1. Waste Audit to Establish Areas of Improvement

Facility management staff audits the building or facility to spot areas in need of performance improvement. Integrated facility management services allows the incorporation of softwares and systems to collect waste and energy data over a defined period. 

The systems trace sources of waste, causes of waste, and analyzes if there are ways of preventing this waste. Facility management is a process focused on delivering the best results. Therefore, in waste management, it focuses on reducing waste from the source. 

The team then uses the collected info to develop a facility tailored waste management program.

2. Identifying the Smart Tools for Efficient Waste Management

Facility management staff then analyzes and recommends the necessary equipments to enhance waste management efficiently.

Moreover, they will also coordinate with their seniors for incorporating smart technology tools that will enhance waste collection while improving energy efficiency.

Smart technology tools today are a vital part of facility management, for they enhance data collection, problem tracking, and provide fast solutions to problems.

Smart sensors identify waste collection points and provide information for action. They can predict dump filling time and allow planning to counter overflows in energy-wasting.

Smart technology also enhances proactive communication showing container overflow history, which can then be used to pre-plan for hauling.

3. Training Facility Users

After installing new equipments, it’s vital to train all users on proper usage and handling. Users are part and parcel of a waste management program, so they should get trained and involved from the onset.

Even before training, their ideas are vital for an inclusive approach to an efficient waste management program. Facility management staff highlights all the guidelines on how to use the equipments, point out the risks, and explain the benefits.

Training users help in countering injuries, wrong use, and support the goal of waste management programs.

Facility managers can also train users on all energy-efficient waste management techniques. Training can involve lessons on techniques to reduce waste from the sources, recycling and on sustainable waste management

4.  Track and Monitor Progress 

The facility management staff tracks sensor performance over a predetermined period. During the tracking period, facility managers collect and compile data, trace areas of improvement and correct any gaps. 

The monitoring period in facility management services helps to understand the system and determine if it meets the users’ needs. The facility management team can restructure the system or improve it if they find any gaps.

5. Report on Performance 

Facility management services involve trust and transparency. Facility managers must be open throughout to build trust. So, at the end of the waste management program, facility managers update customers on performance parameters.

The final report can include equipment functionalities, power consumption, and cost. The result everyone expects is a reduction of power costs and improved efficiency in waste management.
