Every office needs to look beyond clear goals when implementing a recycling program. Here are four ways to expand your office recycling program.
Recycling is more than paper.
From calculators to cell phones, you can recycle very small office electronics such as empty ink and toner cartridges by sending them back to the manufacturer. You can find the best recycling services online.

Recycle ink and toner cartridges.
Many inks and toner manufacturers offer prepaid shipping labels to facilitate the recycling of ink and toner cartridges. Just return empty cartridges and recycle them.
Donate or recycle old computers.
Don't throw away your old office computer after the upgrade, donate it too. In addition, computer manufacturers offer free recycling and marketing. Or you can go to old school and donate your old office computer to Goodwill. With all the computer recycling and donation programs available for the office, there's no reason every office computer should end up in a landfill.
Compost from canteen waste.
Businesses that incorporate food composting into their office recycling programs significantly reduce their waste disposal costs. Composting garbage is the best solution for most offices as it contains all the food residue to remove odors and protect living things.
