When is the last time you reviewed your recycling program? If it’s been more than three or four years, it may be time to take a fresh look. Like so many businesses today, recycling is always changing and improving. There may be new equipment or technology that you could be taking advantage of to make your program more efficient and cost-effective. Recycling commodities are also expanding. Materials that were once non-recyclable may now have a market.
Chances are, like the recycling industry, your business has changed over the past few years as well. Those changes may have affected your packing or waste stream. Today more than ever, we see companies taking advantage of alternative uses for materials rather than sending them to the landfill. These options may not have been available when you put your recycling program in place. Re-evaluating your plan may bring to light new possibilities that could make the whole program more cost-effective and efficient.
Maybe your waste stream hasn’t changed, but are you maximizing your program’s value? The cost of labor is increasing, but the value of your recyclables is ever-changing. A more well-designed program can decrease your labor costs and bring you a steady return on your investment.
