Waste control is resource management control in dairy food plant operations. Appreciable reductions can be achieved in product, water, energy, labor, packaging losses and sewer surcharges. A good program in waste control can increase the profit margin by more than 10%, as well as being a program that helps improve the environment in which we live. Another result of the operation of an effective waste program is to increase the overall efficiency of a dairy food plant. Waste control should be recognized as being equal in significance to quality control and justifies the assignment of one or more individuals to the waste control program with resulting economic gain to the dairy food plant. This Handbook is predicated on the viewpoint that an effective control program requires the full attention of a responsible person reporting directly to the plant manager. Details are presented in this manual on the implementation of this strategy.
