|Please DO NOT recycle:
An average office worker can dispose of 1/2 pound of waste daily. Use the following equation to see how much paper you could be recycling:
___ number of employees x 0.5 lbs. of paper per day x 240 working days ÷ 2000
= ___ tons of paper your company discards annually
Over the past year, there have been global concerns over the quality of recyclable materials, and these expectations are not going away.
In January 2018, China will no longer accept 26 types of recyclable materials into their country. Nearly 60% of recyclable materials generated in California are currently exported to China and other Asian markets. As a result, processing mills worldwide demand that recycling facilities ship only recyclables with less than one percent contamination, a significant change in material requirement standards. A minimal amount of contamination, such as garbage, green waste, or other debris, can ruin a complete load of recyclable material. The quality of recyclable material can impact your costs should contamination require recycling to be dumped as trash.
Please help us prevent and reduce contamination of recyclable material by reviewing the guidelines above and seeing what materials are accepted in our residential recycling program.
