Key Challenges in Retail Waste Management

Let’s talk about your challenges first. At Evreka, we are aware of the difficulties retailers face in managing waste and ensuring sustainability. While every retailer deals with unique waste management challenges, these are the ones industry leaders most often mention.

Traceability Challenges

Managing waste traceability across the supply chain can be a significant challenge for retailers. Documenting the journey of each waste item, from generation to disposal or recycling, is a complex task. Especially when you’re dealing with multiple suppliers, each operating their own waste tracking systems.

Moreover, ensuring sustainability within these supply chains adds another layer of complexity. Your suppliers also need to prioritize sustainable waste management practices, reduce carbon emissions during waste transportation, and incorporate sustainability into every aspect of their business.

Waste Reduction Challenges 

Waste reduction issues come in many forms. Especially, cutting down on food waste is a big challenge for grocery retailers and requires careful attention to several areas. You must be familiar with the following challenges if you manage a grocery retail store:

  • Keeping track of expiration dates
  • Ensuring accurate stock levels to prevent overordering
  • Predicting customer demand to avoid surpluses

But there’s more! Implementing an effective waste management system and a comprehensive recycling strategy is equally challenging for retailers because every step takes time and effort.

Packaging Challenges

It is often difficult for retailers to reduce waste due to excessive packaging. The common use of single-use plastics like bags, containers, and wrapping makes this problem worse. If retailers could track, separate, and recycle packaging waste properly, they could decrease packaging waste and contribute to the circular economy.

When it comes to retail waste management, sustainability-driven solutions have the power to turn challenges into opportunities.
