 WASTE NOT

Waste management has one of the most direct impacts on the environment and your business operations. The most effective way to reduce waste is to NOT create it in the first place.

Think REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. Benefits include:

  1. Reducing the amount of waste for disposal.
  2. Preventing pollution by reducing manufacturing, transportation, and the need to harvest raw materials.
  3. Saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change.
  4. Cutting costs.

Below is a quick guide. Questions? email: infodc@greatforest.com

HOW DO I REDUCE AND REUSE?

  • PAPER: Set double-sided printing as the default mode.  When buying printer paper, prioritize recycled content.
  • SERVICEWARE: Switch from disposable plates and cutlery to chinaware and metal cutlery to reduce the generation of single-use waste.
  • CUPS: Bring a travel mug for your coffee to minimize usage of paper cups.
  • BATTERIES: Implement a policy to only purchase rechargeable batteries for electronic devices.
  • DONATE: Sell or donate unwanted items instead of throwing them out. See Transforming Waste – A Guide To Donating For Reuse, Avoiding Landfills.
