How Recycling Can Save Your Business Money
In most offices, paper can make up a big proportion of the waste that is disposed or recycled every day. You can create a campaign that suggest that you ‘think before you print’, this can include setting up printers and photocopies to print double sided to encourage everyone to use old scraps of paper instead of buying sticky note pads.
Furniture and electrical equipment
Electrical equipment is one of the fastest growing sources of waste from businesses in London. Electrical waste can sometimes also create harmful waste due to heavy metals, non-biodegradable plastics, battery acids and other hazardous elements. It can also pose a security risk if any sensitive information is left on unprotected hard disks or other storage media.
The best option for businesses if it is necessary to throw something away is to donate the product to a local re-use organisation so it can be used again. Re-used goods offer excellent value if you are a new business starting up, moving offices, or expanding your workforce. The furniture that is available has typically only been used for a fraction of its intended life span.
