When you stop and think about how much waste a business can go through weekly, the amount can be staggering. When you think about it in terms of cost, it can feel even more overwhelming. Recycling business waste can both improve office efficiency and also make an impact environmentally, so it’s a win-win for all. Before throwing away commercial waste, consider implementing a waste management policy to benefit your company in these ways.
Save on Recycling Costs
Surprisingly, the cost to send materials to recycling can be less than paying for waste removal to a landfill. And with the recycling pickup benefits that many commercial recycling companies offer, office recycling is made even easier.
The more material that is recycled, the less that is thrown away. As a result, this can help consolidate waste and may in turn require fewer scheduled waste pickups. Using balers and compactors on top of reducing waste through recycling means can further eliminate scheduled pickups. This in turn can save you money overall. Contact your waste provider to see if minimizing pickups can result in a lower fee.
Save On Space
Operating a business requires space for production. The more waste you have taking up room, the less you have of valuable operating space. Reducing waste will open up more usable square footage so you can turn that added space into more room to increase productivity and profit.
Purchase Fewer Materials
While office recycling is a great way to be sure nothing is wasted, there are also other ways to avoid wasting materials. This can be done through thinking about how you as an office can also recycle or repurpose waste. For instance, some materials like motor oils or paint solvents can be filtered and used again. Other materials like paper or cardboard waste can be repurposed as packing material, leading to cost savings overall with fewer materials purchased.
