Ramp Up Your Office Recycling Program

Recycling can greatly decrease the amount of waste your office sends to the landfill.  If your office does not have a recycling program, here’s some inspiration on how to implement one.

Recycling can greatly decrease the amount of waste your office sends to the landfill, so if your office does not have a recycling program, talk to your HR department about implementing one. Set up blue bins in the break room for recyclable materials and have volunteers sign up each week to take them to a local recycling center. You can even create a cell-phone recycling program that benefits impoverished people around the world.

Here at the Green Mountain Energy Company headquarters in Austin we take recycling to the next level. From glass bottles to expired CFLs to plastic bags, our break room has collection bins where you can recycle just about anything.  We also have compost bins for organic material disposal, which is then re-purposed for gardening fertilizer.   Not only do these efforts keep us in a green state-of-mind at work, but it also encourages us to step up our recycling habits at home.
