Want to Make Your Business Eco-Friendly Efforts Easier and More Effective?
Reduce and recycling for business is a great way to lower cost, boost employee moral e and save natural resources. A waste reduction and recycling program is only effective if management and employees work together and commit to making changes.
Check out these 7 Steps to Better Business Recycling:
Make a Recycling Plan that will strategize your company’s recycling efforts; assign an employee or group of employees to brainstorm about ways your business can ramp up reduction and recycling efforts. Having someone ‘championing’ the cause can increase the likelihood of success.
Get everyone involved – create ‘Green Teams’ to oversee their department’s green efforts.
Evaluate Your Waste
One good way to cut back on your waste management costs is to assess the amount of waste your company is generating. Disposing of objects or items that can be reused, you may be throwing money away.
Reuse Valuable Materials
Look for ways to reuse valuable materials whenever possible. Re-evaluate the need to print out draft copies of documents and save paper for reuse.
Recycle Usable Goods
Most recycling centers can recycle plastics, film, wood, electronics, paper, and cardboard. Set up recycling bins around the office, and make sure employees understand basic recycling facts, and know which materials can and can’t be recycled. You should also try to buy recyclable goods or recycled goods whenever possible.
Clearly label your recycling, organics and trash so that it is obvious and upfront of all employees that you are serious about your recycling efforts
Reduce Waste Disposal Costs
The best way to reduce your company’s waste disposal costs is by identifying and eliminating inefficient waste generating processes within the company. Encourage employees to email documents back and forth for review, rather than printing them out.
