Recycling at Work

Recycling Counts™ at home and at work! If you’re not already recycling at work, there are some easy ways to get started.

First of all, keep recycling simple. Placing recycling bins next to trash cans make it just as easy to recycle as it is to throw something away. Make recycling a matter of thoughtfulness and choice instead of a matter of convenience.

Contact your city government to find out what is recyclable, and what is not. Educating coworkers about this helps get recyclable items to recycling centers and keeps unrecyclable items out. Differentiate recycling bins from trash cans with labels or signs to show which materials are accepted.

You can make a difference as you lead by example. As you recycle at work, others can see how simple it is and can follow your lead. Your own individual efforts count in a big way!
