If you think recycling will be an extra burden on your company, perhaps these benefits will change your mind set.
Here's why you should start recycling today!
According to the Health & Safety Advisor, recycling generates an additional income for your business because recycling companies pay for the recyclable waste.
Measure the amount of waste that's recycled versus the amount of waste that's disposed of without a recycling programme. Calculate the revenue you've paid by the recycling company and you'll see that recycling can be a cash cow for your business.
You don't have to be in any specific industry, a CEO or manager to start recycling. Any company can develop a recycling programme but you can't do it alone. It starts with teamwork!
Working together as a team is a great way to reduce employee negativity and create a positive vibe in your company. Use it as a team-building initiative for your company. Nothing brings people together more than working as a team and knowing that you're making a difference.
When recyclables instead of raw materials are used to make new products using less energy, water and other resources are used during the manufacturing process. So you're making a positive impact on the environment too!
Now that you know all about the benefits of recycling, make it your resolution for this year. Use these steps to create a recycling programme in your company.
