Paper Recycling at the Office

If you work at an office, what is something that you probably use almost every day? Whether you need to write a quick reminder note, print a report, mail a letter, or construct a mini-airplane, sooner or later you’re going to need paper!

 

While it’s always best to reduce waste when we can through digital options, sooner or later a hard copy becomes necessary. And that’s when recycling comes in handy!

 

 

Recycling Options for Paper:

 

If you work at a business with a single-stream recycling program, paper is captured with a variety of other recyclables like plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, aluminum cans, and so on.

 

When office paper contains confidential information, it’s best to destroy in a secure manner through a shredding provider like COPS Paper Shredding. Instead of putting paper in the recycle bin, it’s stored in locked containers before being shredded. But no worries! 100% of the paper that COPS shreds on-site for businesses is recycled at Midwest Fiber and diverted from the landfill.

 

Whichever method you use to recycle paper at work, there are ways of making your individual strategy more convenient.

 

For example, papers not containing confidential information can be placed in a box under or near your desk. This way, you don’t need to stop what you’re doing every time you want to recycle a sheet of paper. And when your box is full, you can make one trip to the bin instead of fifty little trips. Unless you’re participating in an intense step-counting challenge, one trip is usually the more desired option!

 

Did you know that Midwest Fiber provides boxes for this type of scenario? If it would help increase efficiency for your recycling program, let us know!

 

Keep up the good work recycling your office paper!

Two years after calling recycling a $40 million drain on the city, New York City leaders realized that a redesigned, efficient recycling system could actually save the city $20 million and they have now signed a 20-year recycling contract.
