The Importance Of Recycling In Any Business

by Stephen A. B. Certified Expert
Americans throw away enough paper in a year to build a wall 12 feet high from New York City to Los Angeles.  This fact is from the site earth911.org, a public service website that focuses on recycling issues.  Now that’s a lot of paper! Despite the hype that computer makers gave a few years ago, the computer has NOT decreased the toilet paper used in most offices today, but has actually in a fair amount reduced the use of paper for official works, which are now usually projected with a projector device. 
According to the U.S. Conference of Mayors Clean Your Files Day Program, the average citizen uses about 1 ½ pounds of paper a day.  
The average office employee uses 10,000 sheets of paper per year according to the Environmental Defense Fund.
Now that’s just the figures on paper. What about the ink cartridges and cell phones that are tossed into landfills each year.  
No matter how you slice it, recycling today is still big business. Whether it’s glass, paper, plastic, steel, printer wet and dry ink cartridges, computers, magazines, cardboard boxes, cell phones or other materials, recycling products reduces waste and cost, and saves energy and resources.  
So why isn’t your business utilizing a recycling program? Many small business owners feel overwhelmed when asked about recycling, but it needn’t be daunting because there are a lot of resources available.  
Many of them are just an Internet click away. Some that you might look at are:

            www.greenofficerecycling.com
            www.obviously.com/recycle
            www.nre-recycle.org
            www.recyclingtoday.com
There may also be businesses nearby you that have “been there and done that” and may be willing to share advice, strategies, plans, and programs. Why reinvent the wheel when you can think out of the box or upgrade the Idea. Have a good one. :)
