Houston, TX – How to Set Up the Most Efficient Office Recycling Programs

Having just one person in charge of office recycling and recycling pick up can be a daunting task.  Although office recycling is a great program, there are ways to make it more efficient and manageable in order to sustain the program and make it incredibly successful.  Keep these tips in mind for setting up an efficient commercial recycling program.

Create a Green Team

Two heads are better than one, and this saying applies to office recycling as well.  Assign a green team of several office members to not only delegate the recycling tasks, but also to also bounce around ideas for improving the recycling program.

Determine What to Collect

After setting up a team, then determine what recycling items to collect.  Talk to a recycling company to see what they collect.  Some recycling companies will only collect certain items for recycling and may require sorting before recycling pickup.  Some recycling companies also allow businesses to make money from the items they recycle.  Be sure to do your research when setting up the recycling collection process.

Set Up Efficient Traffic Flow

Bin placement and centralized locations are important to a commercial recycling project’s success.  Set up bins in areas where more waste tends to accumulate such as lunchrooms or meeting rooms.  There can also be a small centralized area where employees are encouraged to take their recycling to sort themselves.

Choose Appropriate Recycling Bins

It might be wise and more efficient to have separate bins for all streams.  For example, there can be one bin for trash that goes to the landfill and another one specifically for recycling.  Be sure to have a clear way to identify between the two and choose sizes that will accommodate all waste.  Bins that allow for changing of labels could help while determining the volume of trash versus recycling that an office accumulates.
