Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. This phrase has been repeated to us consistently since grade school. While it may be a familiar phrase that everyone knows and can repeat, is it truly something that everyone does? How about your own company? Are you reducing your own waste? Are you reusing items when possible? Are you recycling where you can? At Ever Green Environmental, we are your leading Greenville recycling company that wants to help you improve your recycling efforts starting right now! Here are three quick tips from our experts on improving your own recycling efforts within your place of work.
Make the commitment
If you want to see a change in your company, no matter if you are a large corporation or a small two person business, it’s important to make a noticeable commitment. A new recycling bin in the breakroom won’t advertise itself! If you are a large group, let the change start from the top. Get your upper management to commit to reducing their waste and recycling where they can. This can look different for lots of companies. Whether it is implementing simple recycling options in the area or starting a compost collection in a designated zone, your hope is that a positive commitment to change will continually create more positivity.
Take an Assessment of What You are Currently Doing
How do you know where you can improve if you haven’t ever really evaluated where you are doing things wrong? Perhaps it’s choosing a different vendor that carries recyclable materials or packaging. Maybe your problem area happens to be wasting large amounts of paper? Figure out those problem areas and then suggest some solutions. Solutions can be as big or little as switching to electronic records or using a 2-sided copier. As stated before, recycling efforts are meant to be something that can last a lifetime.
