Project Analysis 

Each facility was evaluated a baseline per facility was established (Facility Type,  Occupant Count, Product Selection, Usage, Unused Product Waste Ratio and Product Usage per Service Ratio).

The Strategy

Implement a consolidated approach, utilize dispensing systems that promote health and wellness with minimal environmental impact (touch-less without batteries). Improve the quality of the product to reduce the per-service amount need for the intended purpose. Reduce unused waste through controlled measured dispensing while providing sufficient product per-service requirements. Implement training to encourage compliance and minimize confusion and waste.


  • Consolidated multiple roll towel sizes and styles to a single type.
  • Provide dispensing sites consistent with occupant demand and service schedules.
  • Consolidate folded towels to a single type, convert folded towels to roll towels where appropriate.
  • Standardized bath tissue replace stadium-style jumbo roll tissue and open use standard tissue with a quality core-less tissue and a controlled dispenser system.
  • Convert multiple soap styles to modern foam style where appropriate. (daycare centers were equipped with automatic dispensing systems to compensate for dexterity realities)
  • Predict usages per location monitor actual use, address variances.
