dbda Act on Waste for Green Office Week and beyond!
May 11, 2011 Leave a comment
So the third day of Green Office Week is upon us and today’s focus is to Act on Waste. Here at dbda, we already have a recycling process in place with separate bins for recyclable materials and bins for food scraps and items that cannot be recycled. But there’s always room for improvement! We’ve redressed our current system and have positioned the bins in more obvious places, replaced smaller bins with bigger ones and alerted all staff to keep a watchful eye on their waste.
We’ve collected up all our plastic bags and placed them in a central place so staff can re-use them on their lunch-breaks and we’re also continuing to collect used batteries so they can be recycled as well as collecting waste paper in order to print on the blank side and setting our printer’s default tray to ‘recycled’. It all helps!
We aim to continue and improve upon our waste reduction systems and inspire all to do the same at home.
