Establishing or expanding a workplace recycling program can improve employee morale. Employees who feel they can make an impact on social and environmental issues while on the job are twice as satisfied with work as those who don’t.
Through the free Recycling at Work program, Keep America Beautiful offers free tools and resources to help develop a recycling action plan. There are suggested employee activities, employee recognition certificates, customizable promotional materials, and more. When a business or institution pledges to increase recycling by 10% over the next two years, it will have access to discounted recycling bins, free webinars, and periodic updates on the program.
“Keep America Beautiful is dedicated to increasing recycling rates,” said Brenda Pulley, KAB senior vice president of recycling. “To make meaningful progress, we need to concentrate on recycling not just at home, but also at work, at school, and on the go.”
