Establishing a recycling program at your place of business is an essential part of being a responsible business owner. Not only does it demonstrate responsibility in terms of protecting and preserving the environment, but it also serves as a positive role model to your employers and your customers. By encouraging your employees and customers to participate in a recycling program, you reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills while also spreading an important message: recycling matters.
Implementing a Recycling Program at Your Workplace
Implementing a recycling program at your workplace is easier than you might realize. First, you need to obtain the proper receptacles to assist with the recycling process. You might be surprised to learn that there are many different types of recycling receptacles available from which to choose. Standalone recycling cans are designed to hold recyclables, while a multistream receptacle has separate areas designed for specific recyclable items or trash. With a standalone recycling receptacle, you will need to take it upon yourself to separate the glasses, plastics and other recyclable items. With a multistream receptacle, on the other hand, your employees and customers help with the separation process by tossing the appropriate item in the designated area.
At Securr, we are pleased to offer a number of multistream recycling bins from which to choose. If you simply want to collect waste and recycling in one can, we have double trash and recycling bins available. If you wish to break your trash and recycling down further, we have three-input and four-input varieties available. The bins are even available with lettering and other designations helping people to identify that the bin is to be used for recycling and the type of items that are to be placed in each input.
Enjoying the Benefits of Recycling
In addition to doing your part to protect the planet, implementing a recycling program at your business is a smart business decision. By doing so, you will be compliant with waste regulations while also being better prepared for potential future legislation. It can also help you to save money on your waste, as it is possible to enjoy a new income stream for your business by taking advantage of the rebates that are available for good quality cardboard, paper, plastics and other materials.
Of course, in order to fully enjoy these benefits, you will need to train your staff on the use of the equipment and teach them which types of items can be recycled. Contacting a waste management company to assist with this process can be helpful, as the company will help you with educating your workers while also forging a contract with you that allows for the prompt removal of all of your waste and recycling. By working in cooperation with Securr, you can select the right receptacle to accommodate your needs while also choosing a design and a color that is well-suited to your business. In this way, you can enjoy the benefits of recycling while also keeping your business looking and running just the way you like.
