Find out how to recycle electrical items in your office

The amount of electrical waste we throw away is growing by 5% year on year, making this the fastest growing area of Waste Management concern.

Over 80% of waste electrical and electronic goods will end up in landfill. Councils are currently organising more facilities to recycle WEEE (waste electronic and electrical equipment) for homes but not for businesses. It’s time to recycle more commercial electrical and electronic items, as the lead and other toxins contained in these items seep out and contaminate soil and water when they go to landfill.

A lot of electrical and electronic items that are disposed of, can be repaired and recycled, so people who need them can benefit from them.

Reducing paper waste in the office

How can we reduce the amount of waste in the office easily?

Each office is different, but for those businesses that are not mainly paperless, it’s the small things that can add up to make a difference.

For example, having designated recycling and waste points around the office, instead of single waste paper bins under each desk, makes everyone more aware of what they are using and how much paper they are throwing away.

Recycling ink and toner cartridges

Recycling toner cartridges. What’s the best way?

There are many charities involved in ink and toner cartridge recycling as well as private organisations who offer free of charge collections.

Whichever option you choose, make sure you check with your collection service the type of ink toners that they can recycle.

We are moving office and are looking to sell our furniture, what is the best way to do this?

We are moving office and are looking to sell our furniture, what is the best way to do this?

We get asked this question a lot and for the right reason. It is a great way to reuse the furniture which means that it is not going to landfill and at the same time companies can look to reinvest any money from the sale. Office furniture that is still in good condition can be advertised through us at The Recycled Office or you could use the usual avenue of those well known advertising sites! If your furniture doesn’t sell, you can also speak to charities or local schools who are always interested in second hand pieces of furniture.
