New year calls for new habits. Fortunately, there are many ways you can improve your recycling methods this year.
By taking a few small steps to improve your recycling habits, you can help conserve natural resources, reduce carbon emissions, and overall create a sustainable future. If you want to get an efficient recycling plan up and running for your business, here are some steps you can take.
Steps to Improve your Business’ Recycling Habits in 2018
- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
If your business is looking to reduce their impact on the environment and improve their recycling habits, it’s important to start with the basics. “Reduce” refers to reducing the amount we consume and shifting our consumption to well-designed products. “Reuse” encourages us to find new ways to use old items or to fix them if broken. You can find new ways to repurpose an item, like reusing a shipping box or bubble wrap.
- Set Up Recycling Bins with Clear Labels
Setting up recycling bins in your business will help create less waste throughout the day. Be sure to properly label your recycling bins and put them in strategic locations throughout your commercial property.
- Education is Key
Knowing what you can and can’t recycle is essential to improving your recycling habits in 2018. Read up on the recycling rules in your area and educate your employees about the importance of recycling and what can and can’t be recycled. In many cases, consumers don’t even know they can, or should, recycle things such as light bulbs, batteries, laptops, cellphones, or electronics.
