Five handy tips to help you recycle at work!

When it comes to recycling at work other things can often take priority, however, with a few simple steps, your business can maximise on your waste and save you money by going a little bit greener.

 

  1. 1)   Designate a Recycling Officer – Enlist an employee who is passionate about recycling and designate them the ‘recycling officer.’ This employee will then be responsible for implementing and supervising the recycling process.

 

  1. 2)   What materials can be recycled? – Determine the materials your business needs to recycle by looking at what materials are in your bins. The most commonly recycled items by businesses are; cans, plastic bottles, office paper, cardboard, magazines, shredded paper, glass bottles or jars.

 

  1. 3)   Make recycling simple – Provide recycling containers for each department or office and clearly label them according to which materials you have decided to segregate. TIP – Reuse printer paper boxes as containers.

 

  1. 4)   Motivate and educate – Ensure your staff members are educated on what material belongs in which container. Keep staff motivated to recycle by explaining the importance of segregating their materials and providing regular progress reports on how the whole business is performing in regards to the recycling rates.

 

  1. 5)   For the long-term – Continue recycling efforts and evaluate material consumption on a regular basis to ensure your business is making the best use of your segregation containers. Ensure the containers are regularly emptied.
