Help the environment by shredding and recycling.

Did you know, that approximately 40% of the waste in the United States is paper and cardboard? And in fact, a majority of this waste comes from waste in the workplace. Implementing a workplace plan to recycle and reduce unnecessary paper use can prevent a large portion of that waste.

Help become less wasteful in your workplace, use the following tips to help guide you in the right direction:

  • Print less paper, or don’t print at all if you don’t need a hard copy

  • If you do have to print, make sure to print double sided documents and use economy print settings on printers and copiers

  • Purchase products with the maximum post-consumer recycled content available

  • Go digital whenever possible

  • Purchase refillable ink cartridges

  • Order office supplies in bulk to reduce packaging

  • Buy paper produced by a company with a stated commitment to environmental stewardship

  • Purchase and specify post-consumer recycled content papers

  • Keep your mailing list updated to avoid duplicates in your company direct mail pieces
