Waste Reduction Tips for the Office
Waste reduction in the office consists of little changes which added together make a big difference! With a little thought, you can apply pollution prevention strategies to just about any “process” that generates waste, whether it’s making a cup of coffee or preparing for a presentation.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
• Do you need to print it? Hold paper-free meetings and workshops.
• Keep a reusable beverage cup, silverware, plate, bowl and dish soap at the office for lunch.
• Save your toner cartridge for recycling, and of course, always print double-sided.
• Don’t buy notes pads – cut up scrap paper from the recycling bin instead.
