ASI Waste was named the winner of the 2021 Big Innovation Award. The company received this award for their groundbreaking technology, the Waste Tracker, which helps large and small businesses keep track and reduce their impact on the environment.
Saint Joseph's University
The Waste Tracker allows customers to see the exact tonnage of waste produced in a given time period, which then gives ASI and the customer recommendations on how to reduce cost as well as total waste generated. CEO an Owner, Laurie B. Holland, commented on the Waste Tracking technology when stated, "For small businesses this is great because it allows them to be able to keep track of their waste footprint and also see areas of improvement. It also provides great value for the customers, because most of the time when waste is reduced the cost is as well."
Working directly with other small business has always been something where ASI has succeeded so the Waste Tracker could be a real game changer for all small businesses. Now businesses have a tool where they can check data on their waste services and actually set goals for their own sustainable initiatives.
Various members of the team saw how this can be scaled for larger generators/clients and wondered why couldn't we do the same thing for smaller businesses? Don Holland, VP of Sales commented, "We saw the value for a business being able to reduce waste and cost and knew immediately the value this could provide for smaller businesses, sustainably and financially." For small businesses owners this provides a lot of value and that's something we pride ourselves on doing for our clients.
While we cannot give out the specific numbers, we can tell you that ASI has helped the larger university reduce their waste generation by thousands of tons, annually. It doesn't stop their either. ASI helps the consumer set new goals and initiatives each year to keep improving operations.
This is also a technology we may look to license, our main goal is make it accessible to all businesses regardless of their size. As previously mentioned, ASI really focuses on the education aspect of the business as well, so teaching our consumers how to track their own waste and analyze it, helps ASI contribute to their triple bottom line (people, profit, and planet). This also aligns with SDG Goal #17, Partnership, and partnering with all of these businesses to allow them to take their waste matters into their own hands. ASI Waste believes that if everyone does their part and learns, we can work towards an overall more sustainable society.
VP of Sales, Don Holland, loves the innovation from what it does for both sides of the tracking. Don said, "For us its great because now we can share this data directly with the client and show them exactly the results they are producing. Then we can analyze the data and decide what's the best route for the customer to reduce their waste generated. We are all about working together at ASI Waste, as one team!"
