describe ways of minimising waste, including using technology and other porcedures
Weegy: Reduce your use of office paper Copy paper, like the kind used in photocopiers, computer printers and plain-paper fax machines, is the most common type of office waste paper. According to the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance, [ the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year. The U.S. EPA estimates that paper and paperboard account for almost 40 percent of our garbage. Office paper is highly recyclable, but a lot gets wasted. Waste reduction is more cost-effective than recycling because it reduces the amount of material that needs to be collected, transported and processed. Waste reduction can save money for businesses and institutions of any size. Nearly 3.7 million tons of copy paper are used annually in the United States alone. That's over 700 billion sheets. Benefits of using less Storage and handling. Paper is bulky to store, in boxes or in file cabinets. By using fewer sheets, you can put storage space to more productive use. For example, Owens Corning recently made all of its offices worldwide "paperless." Having had 14,000 file cabinets around the world, the company has already saved around $30 million in lease costs. Mailing costs. Fewer sheets mailed may mean reduced postage. A single-sided 10-page letter costs $0.63 to send by U.S. first class ; that same letter, copied onto both sides of the paper, uses only five sheets and requires only $0.39 in postage. The price of postage is rising, and those extra ounces can really add up. Environmental benefits. By increasing double-sided copying (duplexing), U.S. offices could reduce annual paper use by 20 percent (Inform, Inc). By using and discarding less paper, you are conserving resources, reducing water and energy use, and preventing pollution. Tips for reducing paper use Try to use both sides of a sheet of paper for printing, copying, writing and drawing. Reuse paper that's already printed on one side by manually feeding it into copiers and printers. Use it ... (More)

describe ways in which waste may be minimised by regularly maintaining equipment
Weegy: Regular maintenance of equipment entails a cost but the cost is less than neglecting maintenance and paying for repairs. Maintenance also ensures that the equipment produces its service most efficiently. [ Machines that go out of adjustment can result in rejected products that deviate from specifications. A breakdown requiring repairs can put a piece of equipment out of service for an extended period while parts are ordered. Maintenance can be scheduled during times when equipment is not in use, while a breakdown usually occurs when the equipment is needed to work. ] (More)
