When it comes to office cleaning, Milton Keynes based office managers may focus on how clean an office is. However, the way in which recycling is handled is becoming ever more crucial.
The cost of putting waste into landfill sites has been steadily rising since 2001 and currently sits at £82.60 per tonne. Recycling office waste can save your company money and help reduce its impact on the environment.
WHY SHOULD I RECYCLE?
Recycling in the office makes good sense because:
Recycling is a cost-effective method of dealing with your waste, simply because it is often cheaper or a comparable price to general waste disposal. In fact, many businesses have saved money on general waste services by introducing a paper recycling scheme. If you are recycling materials then you are reducing the amount of waste that needs to be sent to landfill, as a result you may be able to renegotiate your waste disposal contract, so that you receive less general waste collections and therefore save money
OUR TOP TIP: FOCUS ON PAPER CONSUMPTION
Most office waste consists of paper. Therefore, the highest impact action that you can take to reduce your waste is to reduce paper consumption.
The two main actions you can take to reduce paper are to setup all printers on double-side (i.e. duplex printing). This simple action could halve paper consumption.
