Waste and Materials Management

The way the world views waste and materials is evolving. Every day new technologies, policies, and trends are emerging all aiming to provide insights and guidance on how to properly recycle material, minimize waste generation, manage raw materials and byproducts throughout the value and supply chain, and end-use recovery. There are two bills in Congress that would alter the way U.S. businesses handle their waste and recycling. The Secure E-Waste Export and Recycling Act, and the Recycling and Composting Accountability Act, both would promote recycling and diversion of common materials from landfills. Additionally, many Fortune 500 companies are creating their own paths to drastically reduce waste and push for more sustainable materials and end-use recovery for reuse.

Antea®Group combines strategy with solutions to ensure regulatory compliance for the management of materials and wastes as well as looking beyond compliance to support the development of material and waste reduction for many industries, from high-end retail to consumer beauty and cosmetics, to manufacturing and logistics, energy, and technology. We create specialized waste and materials solutions for each client, helping develop a unique plan that will meet your business needs and the needs of the planet.

Our Expertise

Our capabilities extend beyond addressing waste compliance and disposal requirements. We understand the need to go beyond compliance and seek waste generation and minimization to promote recycling and reuse. 

Antea Group’s professionals have applied their experience and combined expertise to help create a private, technical consortium of industry peers across the healthcare industry and recycling and waste management industries called the Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council (HPRC). HPRC seeks to improve the recyclability of plastic products and packaging within the healthcare industry. 

Our professionals also participate in technical groups and initiatives that seek to minimize the environmental impacts of waste disposal and human activity associated with the products we use daily and are now required to function in today’s society. One example of such is the Circular Economy movement. As a founding member of Inogen Alliance, we offer a deep understanding of risk and regulations from a global perspective and know that there is not a “one size fits all” approach to waste and materials management. Our approach to waste and materials management and beyond waste compliance includes understanding your priority waste streams and how your organization generates waste, examining creative and innovative ways to manage materials and waste within your processes or products, and applying our approach through your value and supply chain.
