Desktop recycling bins are the ultimate in office convince for your workers. The need to set up and implement a recycling program in the office today is huge. If you manage or work in an office environment then you are aware of the amount of paper generated in one small office.
You can just barely imagine how much paper a larger office uses on a daily basis. The numbers are astronomical. When a business office wants to recycle the paper they would normally throw away. There are several steps, which must be implemented in order to make the transition of throwing paper in the desktop recycle bin rather than the trash can.
The business will want to make the recycle as easy on their employees as possible, so in order to accomplish this they will strategically place recycle bins in locations to prevent their employees in making any extra steps to find a bin. They may wish to use desktop recycle boxes for standard sized paper in order to keep it simple.
At a cost of only a few dollars each, every employee would be able to have one at their work station or a separate mini waste basket, which can be suspended from the normal wastebasket or sitting beside the wastebasket. Usually these boxes will resemble a tray or you can use a folder to place paper in meant for the recycle bin.
If the paper to be recycled at each desk is not just the standard size paper, but includes forms, computer paper, note pads along with standard sized letterhead, copier paper, etc. At a cost $4 to $9 you can have a recycling container at each desk or workstation. The cost of the container will be made up for the savings in time, and increase recycling.
In many large offices the copy machine and the printer is in a central location in order for several people to share the printer rather than each employee have one of each at his or her desk. So a large recycle bin will place at the location of these machines. This will also give your employees a central location to empty their own personal desktop recycle bins or wastebaskets.
As a business to start a recycle program in your company you will need to contact the site manager or the contractor of the cleaning crew. You want them to be aware of the recycle bins on the desktops and other locations, so everything doesn’t end up in the trash bin.
