There are many things you can do to help your work place become more waste aware. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Recycle your office waste - Set up a recycling scheme for your office waste. There are companies who will collect recycling from businesses for a small charge. Make sure recycling bins are close to people's desks - so it's easier to recycle it than bin it.
Buy smart - When buying printers, photocopiers and fax machines, choose ones with options for two-sided printing.
Buy recycled - There are lots of office supplies that contain recycled material that can be bought online or through office suppliers. For example, printer paper, envelopes, pens and pencils. Look out for items that say they include recycled materials.
Stretching the envelope - Reuse envelopes for internal circulation and, if possible, with a sticker for external mail.
Recycle your ink cartridges and printer toners - There are many charities that collect ink cartridges and printer toners to raise money. Search on the internet to find a suitable charity to support. They will normally supply a collection box and arrange collections for you.
