Recycling has become a key part of everyday life. Some areas recycle more than others, and some businesses are more successful at recycling everything than others, too. Knowing your recycling definition is a great place to begin when you are considering how your business can recycle as much as possible.
Can you reuse anything?
Depending on the type of business you run, some items could be recycled simply by reusing them. This might mean using them for the same purpose or for a different purpose. Consider how you run your business and examine whether you can find any solutions that would become part of your definition of waste recycling.
Does recycling mean sorting items into separate bins?
We’ve all heard horror stories of people doing their best to recycle, only to have rubbish refused for being wrongly sorted, unclean, or any one of a dozen other ‘crimes’.
As a business, you’ll need to hire a waste management company to collect your rubbish. The ideal scenario is to find a company that will do the sorting on your behalf. This means all recyclable waste can go into the same bin. This reduces sorting time for you, enabling you to get on with your work instead of wondering what should go in which bin.
It also means you won’t need to worry over whether something is recyclable or not. Large waste management companies can often recycle a far greater percentage of items than the average individual or business can. That looks good for you if you want to enhance the work your business does in this area.
Promote your commitment to recycling
Did you know businesses with a positive approach to recycling as much as they can often see an increase in custom? This applies across the board – people like to see responsible businesses, so committing to recycling is beneficial not just for the environment, but for your business too.
Consider whether you sell anything that includes packaging your customers may not easily be able to recycle, but your business could. Inviting customers to bring their packaging to you to be recycled is a possibility. Of course, some businesses decide to change their packaging to make it easier to recycle for everyone. This send another positive message, telling people how seriously you take this part of the recycling process.
You can see recycling doesn’t need to be difficult. It could be far easier to achieve than you think.
