So you’re ready to sign up for office recycling pickup and are super excited about it. But then you start to wonder, “What if the rest of my office isn’t on board? What if they don’t participate?” And then you go down the slippery slope of panic, thinking that no one will get involved in your passion project to get the whole office recycling more. Have no fear! Not only does Mission Recycle offer commercial recycling pickup, but we also have a few tips and tricks up our sleeve to help you motivate your entire office staff to get on board with recycling!
1. Educate Them on the Environment
They may roll their eyes at the mere suggestion of this, but it’s important to be educated about what our trash is doing to the environment and how we can help. People are more likely to get on board with office recycling when they’re educated about the importance of it, so make sure they know all the facts and stats about how recycling helps the whole world.
2. Create Incentives
Who doesn’t love a good old friendly in-office competition? Maybe you create teams and begin counting the number of recycled items that each team collects, and then the winner gets a prize. Or perhaps you simply want to offer incentives to the entire office if you collectively meet a goal to recycle a certain number of items. You can also provide incentives for reducing within the office, such as printing things double-sided or emailing a memo rather than printing one copy per person.
3. Make It Easy
This is the simplest one on the list, and this is where Mission Recycle comes in. Making it easy for your staff to recycle is one of the best ways to motivate them to do so. Our company provides multiple bins and baskets for you to strategically place throughout your office, and we pick up the recycling frequently so that you can fill all the bins back up right away.
Mission Recycle makes it simple to motivate your staff to recycle more, and that helps make the world a cleaner and better place.
