My office is doing a recycling program. Here’s how it works:
- We bought some blue baskets for paper
- We bought some blue bins to put cans and bottles in
- One of us takes one or two bins home on recycling day
Our program has been running successfully for several months and cost about $20 in supplies to get started.
The office next to ours doesn’t have a recycling program yet. They are still working out how to get someone to run the program for them. One vendor will come take paper away, but you have to buy copy paper from them. They are not big enough to command a full-scale recycling program. In fact, they are waiting to buy the blue baskets until they have the first settled. Naturally, it’s not a priority so it might take a while. Or, they could just start simply. And fast.
