You put out your recycling every week, but what happens after it’s picked up? Did you include the right materials? What about hard-to-recycle items and household hazardous waste, unwanted pharmaceuticals, and organic debris? How do you implement a recycling program at your workplace? What are the best practices for educating employees and visitors about the program and how do you keep it sustainable?
Kara Boule of Nauset Disposal taught us what we need to know to become a sustainability leader, covering the recycling and materials management process, ideas for reducing and reusing materials, composting basics and ways to sustainably manage organic waste, how to encourage recycling, monitor progress and take the next step towards sustainability in the workplace, as well as resources available.
Thanks to Nauset Disposal for a great presentation! And if you missed it we will be running another version of this at the April edition of the Cape Cod Technology Council First Friday breakfast series. Visit CCTC here to learn more about them, see upcoming events, and join their mailing list!
