Sustainable Warehouse Waste Solutions From Keter

Our landfill diversion strategies start with collecting data and evaluating waste reduction opportunities. We'll work closely with you to fully understand your current waste streams and operations, whether it’s cardboard and pallets or returned shipments and packaging. We listen and learn to improve efficiency from the start.

Together, we'll investigate what, why, and how much waste your logistics business produces. The more data we have from waste audits, the better we’ll understand your situation, allowing us to customize a plan for each warehouse space.

Next, we source third-party vendors who offer the distribution waste removal services you need to become more sustainable. Partnering with vendors who can use damaged or returned products is one way our services enhance economic value for our distribution clients. Each client has unique types of waste, and we’re here to ensure your square pegs land in the right square hole.

Client Portal and eTrac Platform

Our proprietary technology offers our clients a comprehensive view of their waste operations. On your client dashboard, you can find verifiable waste data, view transparent reporting, monitor key sustainability KPIs, and highlight actionable analytics across your warehouse locations. 

From your client dashboard, you can:

  • See location-specific metrics. Waste management technology can help organizations comply with local and national waste disposal and recycling regulations. For example, you can see if specific locations or materials have lower diversion rates. At the same time, our systems track the applicable rules so that waste is always handled properly, preventing any legal issues or fines.
  • Track your success. Analytics tools can track how much landfill space you are conserving and your greenhouse gas emission reductions through recycling, composting, and other programs. Your metrics allow you to champion your sustainability wins and highlight opportunities for improvement.
  • Sensors on containers monitor fill levels and compactor performance. This data enables efficient pickups when containers are full and identifies compactors needing service, reducing hauling costs and equipment downtime.
  • Access financial data. Centralized reporting provides easy access to waste metrics, costs, and trends. Over time, a comprehensive analysis of your waste program's operational efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and results drive continual optimization.
