Dear Ruzelle,


I believe waste management program is so specifically to sites that it is not possible to have a general waste management program.


Things to consider:

- segregation of waste;

- labeling of waste container;

- storage conditions of waste;

- registered/approved collectors;

- routings of waste;

- trademarked waste;

- evidence of destruction.


Good luck.

Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor

Hi Zelle,


For the FSSC 22000 Certification scheme you need to comply with the prerequisites for waste control in TS ISO 22002-1:


7 Waste disposal
7.1 General requirements
Systems shall be in place to ensure that waste materials are identified, collected, removed and disposed of in a manner which prevents contamination of products or production areas.
7.2 Containers for waste and inedible or hazardous substances
Containers for waste and inedible or hazardous substances shall be:
a) clearly identified for their intended purpose;
b) located in a designated area;
c) constructed of impervious material which can be readily cleaned and sanitized;
d) closed when not in immediate use;
e) locked where the waste may pose a risk to the product.
7.3 Waste management and removal
Provision shall be made for the segregation, storage and removal of waste.
Accumulation of waste shall not be allowed in food-handling or storage areas. Removal frequencies shall be managed to avoid accumulations, with a minimum daily removal.
Labelled materials, products or printed packaging designated as waste shall be disfigured or destroyed to ensure that trademarks cannot be reused. Removal and destruction shall be carried out by approved disposal contractors. The organization shall retain records of destruction.
7.4 Drains and drainage
Drains shall be designed, constructed and located so that the risk of contamination of materials or products is avoided. Drains shall have capacity sufficient to remove expected flow loads. Drains shall not pass over processing lines.
