There are many simple ways to recycle around the office if you only take a moment to stop and look around. Office recycling is easy and it allows your company to put the stamp of green approval on their label. Being eco-friendly is no longer just a trend – it is a way of life. Everyone is looking for the companies that have the same values as they do, so turn your company into a green company today.
The first place to start may also be the easiest: ink and toner cartridge recycling. Every company prints and some companies are making efforts to prints less and go towards a paperless route. However, there will always be things that just need to be printed out. Besides for ensuring that all the paper gets recycled or reused after you are done using it, you can also be sure that your company is participating in an ink and toner cartridge recycling program.
That means that you should not be throwing away your ink and toner cartridges when you are finished with them Instead, have your company donate them to a company that will clean, repair and refill them. That turns used cartridges into remanufactured cartridges and saves them from the landfill. Ink and toner recycling programs are easy to find on the internet if you just spend a little time looking around.
Other ways to encourage recycling efforts in the work place is to print on both sides of the paper before you let it go to the recycling bin. You can also share office supplies like staplers, fax machines and style guidance books, instead of everyone having their own. Just be sure to continue use disinfectant wipes on all the supplies so that no one gets sick.
