Did you know that the U.S. (which has less than 5% of the world’s population), consumes 30% of the world’s paper?! Help save the environment and save money by placing a recycle bin by your desk at home and at work!
Here’s what can be recycled:
- Mixed paper
- Sticky notes
- Cardboard boxes (flattened)
- Paper bags
- Egg cartons (not Styrofoam)
- Cereal type boxes (remove plastic inserts)
- Glass containers (all food and beverage containers)
- All plastic bottles
- Metal containers
In addition to saving our natural resources, desk-side recycling cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions. It also keeps items that could be recycled from being hauled off by trash collectors and place in the already over-crowded landfills.
