Recycling in the Workplace

What do a restaurant, paper mill, and sports arena all have in common?  When it comes to the environment, they all have the capability to recycle or utilize used materials.  Whether you are a small business or a large-scale industry, there is a recycling plan that is right for you.  Once in place, a recycling plan can save thousands of dollars in energy and prevent materials from entering our landfills.  Not only can you pat yourself on the back for doing something beneficial for the environment, but you are also supporting a dynamic industry that benefits the economy.

Did you know that the carpet industry is clamoring for recycled plastic bottles in the form of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) to make luxury carpet?  Or that fibers from textile mills can be salvaged and traded in waste exchanges?

The following links and resources may prove helpful in improving your business practices regarding the environment.  No matter your industry, whether mechanical, textile, restaurant, or office, there are resources just for you!  Used products, such as batteries, cell phones, plastic, paper, used oil, oil filters, bottles, or printer cartridges, are all ready to be recycled or reused.
