Working Green

Why should the workplace and business industry care to get involved?

Simply put, reducing your waste lowers your operating and disposal expenses.

In order for California’s state and local governments to achieve waste reduction mandates, they must rely on the full commitment and involvement of business and industry to reduce, reuse, recycle and buy recycled. With modest budgets and often limited staff time, businesses and governmental agencies throughout California are conscientiously trying to update their workplace operations, by reducing expenditures on raw materials, office supplies, equipment, and other purchases to conserve resources and reduce costs. Other potential economic advantages include lower solid waste service costs and potential revenue for high-value recyclable materials.
