How to get your staff involved with your recycling system
Clear communications are very important to ensure that people use the recycling bins and put the correct items in them, Tell them why you are recycling e.g. why it will save money and what the environmental benefits will be.
- Encourage senior management to get involved: their buy-in is important and it is beneficial for messages to come from them
- Information about the recycling services can be discussed at team meetings, through the Intranet, internal newsletters as well as verbally and by using posters.
- Speak to cleaning staff to ensure that they recycle correctly.
- Remove individual 'under desk' bins and install single waste and recycling points. This increases the amount of material recycled by removing the temptation for people to 'easily' throw away. It is important that this is clearly communicated in advance. You are likely to see some initial resistance, but people soon get used to the new system.
