Houston, TX – Top 5 Keys to Commercial Office and Workplace Recycling Success

BY: Eric Coan, Mission Recycle

Recycling has become a big part of recent initiatives to promote sustainability. Several key factors can make office recycling in the workplace a success. Explore these keys to workplace recycling success for your office recycling program. Be sure to note each one for one without the other could cause a decrease in efficiency instead of the hoped-for increase in office recycling success. 

Proper Signage

Signs in all the right places are important to helping office workers know exactly where and what to recycle. It can also help for sorting to make recycling pickup smoother. Signs should provide clear messages for each bin, including what bin is for recyclables and what bin is headed for the landfill. 

Consistency

Consistency in the colors of bins is also important. One color should denote a recycling bin throughout the office, while another color bin can be for landfill products. Green or blue bins are the commonly recognizable recycling colors, so bins in these colors are optimal. 

Convenience

Place containers in easy-to-see and reach places. Recycling bins should be in places where office workers commonly go, such as next to the copier or in the break room, to encourage recycling habits. 

Location

Recycling bins and landfill bins should always be side by side. Marry the containers together so that when one goes to throw something away, they also see the recycling bin. 

Recycling Education

Once an office recycling program is in place, it is important to educate employees as to how best to utilize this program. Consistent reminders about recycling should occur regularly through the weeks. 

These critical elements to office recycling can make all the difference in ensuring a successful office recycling program.
