Many organizations adopt a waste hierarchy; disposal, recycle, reuse, reduce. This means that they will try to dispose of any hazardous materials by following legislation, recycle any waste that is able to be recycled, reuse products and sharing items between departments instead of automatically throwing it away, and reduce by asking any suppliers to remove packaging or by trying to reuse or recycle packaging.
Recycling is a necessary part of our lives now and it should be incorporated into work and play so that we get used to recycling instead of disposing. Hopefully this should get easier as governments sign declarations around the world, that they will reduce their carbon emissions in the coming years.
