In today’s eco-conscious age, it’s important for individuals and businesses alike to put an emphasis on their recycling in order to reduce the waste we as a society send to landfill sites. Thankfully, the systems in place to help businesses recycle materials are sound and efficient – and require little investment from your company in order to align your organization with the recycling protocols of the day.
Below, you’ll discover how to best set up your business to ensure that you’re recycling all you can in the most efficient manner possible.
Sort Your Trash
Ensuring that you’re recycling effectively starts with your ability to sort your waste. If you’re unsure of what can be recycled, and what you’ll be able to send away in bundles to waste processing plants, you’ll be starting from a difficult position: unable to understand fully which items you should send to which destination. It can be confusing. Therefore, it’s important for any business that produces a good deal of varied waste to take a training course in which substances are recyclable, and to spread this knowledge around the business. With this training undertaken, you’ll easily be able to sort your trash on your shop or factory floor.
Buy a Baler
Having found an efficient system with which to sort your cash each day, you’ll now want to invest in a mechanism that allows you to compress bundles of trash into neat and disposable cubes or ‘bales’ of recyclable trash, to be collected by a trash recycling company. The most effective way to go about this is to invest in a baler or compactor; you can buy them second-hand at most dealers. You will also need to look into a bale wire supplier in order to have the metal ties that will bind your bundles of waste, allowing you to easily dispose of them.
Waste Disposal Company
Now is the time to set up a relationship with a local waste collection company. These businesses will come by your business on a regular schedule to pick up your bales and other trash products at any given location, thus ending your own trash journey and passing it on to a company that’s able to do it at a recycling facility. Again, ensure staff know when and where these pick-ups take place in order to avoid stacking up missed collections outside your business.
Better than recycling – and more efficient for the world of waste processing, is simply finding ways in which your business can reduce the waste that it produces. You can do this in the following ways:
As a company, if you’re fulfilling all of the steps outlined above, then you’ll be reducing waste and increasing your proportion of recyclable waste for the future, aligning your business with an eco-friendly vision of how companies should operate.
