Recycling at Work

While recycling at home is important, it is by no means the only place to reduce waste. Led by the nonprofit Keep America Beautiful, Recycling at Work is a nationwide voluntary initiative "challenging businesses, government agencies, schools, hospitals, and other institutions to commit to increasing workplace recycling by 10 percent." Here, visitors will find numerous resources to help them start or expand a workplace recycling program, such as Recycling at Work's 10-Step Action Plan and a collection of free tools and communication templates to help implement the action plan and boost employee engagement. Recycling at Work's front page currently spotlights an April 2015 study on "the most effective infrastructure to increase recycling (both quantity and quality) in office settings," with links to the study's 126-page report, a fact sheet, and a webinar recording presenting the study's finding. Other useful content includes case studies submitted by Recycling at Work pledge partners to share their experiences and best practices, as well as the list of helpful links to other recycling resources and programs.
