• Assess your office or work environment and determine what type of recyclable waste is mostly produced or available

  • Ensure that everyone at the office knows how the recycling project works

  • Identify a collector of recyclables who will collect or buy from your office, or a charity organization that would benefit from the recyclables

  • Identify which materials will be the easiest to recycle or collectnearest drop-off site (saves fuel!!) or support your curbside collection.

  • Ensure that your office has a well managed storage facility for the recyclables

  • Separate your waste – keep wet (waste) and dry (recyclables) apart. Place your clearly signed recycling bins in a designated area, familiar to all.

Special Notes

  • Clean the recyclables if heavily soiled e.g. foodstuff

  • Flatten the plastic bottles, cartons, cardboard boxes and cans to reduce volume

  • A plastics identification code appears on the product to identify packaging plastics
