  • Remove personal desk bins so everyone has to go the recycling station
  • Place recycling bins by the landfill bin
  • Organise recycling and composting (paper towels can be composted). Find a local compost collection
  • Make it fun! Why not set an office challenge to hit certain recycling targets
  • Donate unwanted items such as furniture, stationary and promotional items. Children’s Scrapstore takes really random business things!
