  • What can you do at home?

  • Acquire a few recycle bins from your local municipality or city. They're usually free.
  • Place these bins close to any trash can, so it's easy for your family to remember.
  • Sort and take out the recycling on your local recycling company's schedule.
  • Spread the word to other families to get involved.

  • What can you do at the office?

  • Start talking to your boss or supervisor about recycling.
  • Once the recycling containers are acquired, place them in convenient areas, beside trash cans.
  • Spread the word in the office, send out an email blast, or hang signs. Make sure every employee knows that the office is a recycling office.
  • Provide incentives for recycling, like office parties. A few cities do this now.
  • If all these methods fail, talk to a local city-worker or council member to help you with your office's needs.
