5 Simple Steps to Creating a Zero-Waste Office

In the world today, people have become more aware of recycling and the need to preserve the environment. Extra paperwork in the office takes up a lot of space and should be removed if they are never used again. Companies have become more computer-friendly and for some businesses they only use electronic copies of paperwork. For those companies that do use paper copies, organize your disposal into separated trash bins. Use one bin for recyclables like newspapers, glass, and plastic bottles. Use one bin for uneaten food that can be composted like banana peels and unfinished sandwiches, and have a third bin for other trash such as Styrofoam and potato chip bags. Keep all shredded paper together in a separate bag and keep beside the paper and glass bin. Try to print on both sides of the paper and recycle any papers with printing mistakes.
