Find Local Recyclers & Office Recycling Program Guidelines
Recycling office waste is an easy first step for company greening programs
According to the Environmental Defense Fund, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper each year - all that paper adds up. Over 30% of the U.S. waste stream is paper!
To assist small- to medium-sized businesses with their recycling efforts, Earth 911 assembled guidelines for implementing a paper recycling program. This information can be applied easily to the recycling of other materials in a business program, such as cardboard, inkjet or toner cartridges, aluminum cans, etc...
Earth 911 provides a directory of local recyclers searchable by zip code.
Businesses can incorporate many integrated waste management techniques into their daily business practices in an effort to help the environment and improve their bottom line. Even if your business already has a waste reduction program there are always a few more steps your business can take to improve and protect the environment and your community.
