Why Recycling is Important.
Recycling minimizes global environmental damage. According to Earthfriends, more than 60% of the items that wind up in trash bins can be recycled. Common items that end up in landfills include plastic and glass bottles. Plastic bottles take up 500 years in a landfill to decompose and glass will never decompose.
The Keep America Beautiful Initiative.
To raise awareness of the need to recycle the Keep America Beautiful organization promotes America Recycles Day. Individuals and organizations across the nations are encouraged to organize events that promote environment responsibility. America Recycles Day is November 15, 2016.
How you can Encourage Recycling.
Keep America Beautiful offers some tips for your business to encourage recycling
- Keep recycling simple and convenient. Have waste receptacles clearly labeled and in convenient locations.
- Place Recycling and Trash Bins Together. When placed together it is easy to tell which items go into the trash bin, and which items go into the recycle bin.
- Use Restrictive Openings. For instance, to encourage recycling of plastic bottles, us a round opening and label it accordingly.
- Pick a uniform color scheme of all trash and recycling bins so that visitors can easily identify them.
- Keep trash and recycling bins clean and well maintained. Nobody wants to touch a dirty trash or recycling receptacle.
