Step One: Gain Management Support

Management support is critical to the success of your program. Gain support by demonstrating how a waste reduction and recycling program can save the company money, boost employee morale and save natural resources.
Programs succeed best when management:

  • Implements company-wide waste reduction and recycling policies.
  • Allocates resources (personnel and money).
  • Leads by example - reducing waste, recycling and buying recycled.
  • Stays committed and involved.
  • Supports incentives to reward staff involvement.
