The festive season is officially upon us, which only means one thing: New Year is just around the corner! While setting New Year’s resolutions is something individuals often do, there’s no reason why your office can’t get in on the fun, too.
If you’re hoping to become a greener and more sustainable business in 2020, here are some waste disposal resolutions to consider:
If your office hasn’t yet gone paperless, now is the time to do so. In recent years, we’ve become much more aware of the devastating effects of deforestation on our planet, so finding ways to minimise our contribution to this is essential. Additionally, going paperless doesn’t have to be difficult; you can start by digitalising your employee contracts, invoices and marketing efforts before transitioning everything else online.
Does your business specialise in selling products? If yes, then it’s time to re-evaluate your packaging. Make it a business goal to ensure that your packaging is completely recyclable by the end of next year, and make it as easy as possible for your customers to dispose of your packaging responsibly.
Next year, make a conscious effort to purchase stationery, furniture and anything else your office relies on in bulk to minimise the packaging used and air miles racked up. It’s even better if you can purchase from a local company to prevent cargo from being flown and shipped from afar.
It’s time to get rid of paper and plastic cups and encourage your employees to avoid single-use products as much as possible. Offer mugs, glasses and crockery in your office kitchen or canteen to reduce your waste output significantly.
If your office doesn’t use the services of a responsible recycling centre, now is the time to change this. By hiring trusted recycling specialists to dispose of your commercial waste, you’ll have peace of mind that any rubbish generated by your office is being taken care of responsibly. With a trusted commercial waste disposal service, your business can become more environmentally-friendly than ever before in 2020.
