Tips to improve workplace recycling

In Make workplace recycling easy.

  • At desk-side: Use the little trash bin along with a recycling bin. If not feasible, use equal-sized trash and recycling bins.
  • In common areas: Include paired recycling and trash bins.
  • Keep signage simple (see example).
  • Match messaging to bin: List most common recyclables on the recycling bin and trash items on the trash bin.

Maintain a consistent program throughout the building.

  • Establish a consistent recycling and trash bin set-up, as well as collection program, in all offices and common areas to decrease confusion for employees and janitorial staff. This will improve participation and the quality of recyclables.
  • Keep messaging consistent on bins, emails, fliers, and any other materials. Ensure that all janitorial staff receives the same information on recycling program guidelines.
