Set Up Your Recycling Program Using Mail-In Recycling Containers

Thursday, June 16, 2016
To gain full “buy in” from your organization’s fledgling recycling program, it helps to have a plan in place. With EasyPak pre-paid mail-in universal waste recycling containers, recycling anything from batteries to fluorescent bulbs to thermostats has never been easier. All you need to do is follow these three steps:

1. Set goals for your recycling program. Just like any project, setting clear goals provides your organization with a clear path from which to measure your success.

2. Measure progress against your goals. If you can’t measure progress against your goals, how do you know if you are successful? Measure your recycling activities against your goals and solicit feedback from both program users and your recycling partners to understand what is working and what’s not. Make changes based on feedback.  

3. Take pride and boast about your accomplishments. Publish your results and to gain recognition and promote a “recycling matters” culture within you organization

Certain commonly used products contain hazardous materials and may also be regulated.  Your recycling results assure regulators that you have a program in place and reporting provides a means to document compliance with applicable regulations. For example, these common workplace materials are regulated by Federal and State Universal Waste laws, and require regulated recycling:

  • Batteries Recycle various types of dry cell batteries including alkaline, nickel cadmium, lithium & lithium-ion, nickel metal hydride, iron, zinc carbon, silver, and Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS), as well as AA, AAA, C, D, and 9-volt.
  • Fluorescent lights Air Cycle provides simple sustainable solutions that make recycling any amount of fluorescent bulbs or CFLs easy.
  • Electronic waste, while not regulated as Universal Waste by the Federal government, is considered so by certain states. This list includes, but is not limited to, computers, monitors, telecom gear, fax machines and TVs.
