There is no doubt at all that managing an office is always an uphill task. You have to ensure that everyone gets paid on time, the office is clean and that the company makes profits. All these tasks or rather responsibilities can easily mean that you at one point or another end up ignoring some seemingly insignificant yet vital office functions. You can for instance, fail to ensure that you observe ideal office waste management practices. Fortunately, you can put a few measures in place to ensure your office is as ecofriendly as possible when it comes to office waste removal. Here is how to go about it.
Separate bins for different materials
This concept has revolutionized e waste management in Perth. It encourages safe disposal of office waste that may eventually be harmful to the environment. With that in mind, invest in office waste bins that divide which waste goes where. General waste like food debris and remains should go into one slot. Recyclable waste on the other hand like shredded pieces of paper and cardboards should go into another slot. Pins, paper clips and such kind of waste should also be put into a different slot.
Schedule regular waste removal
Most offices today still use regular bins to collect and dispose office waste. There is nothing wrong with this approach. It should however be noted that scheduled garbage collection and disposal can easily save one time. It especially comes in handy where one has to deal with piles of office waste every week. A professional garbage collection service provider can save you the inconvenience of looking for a large disposal unit. It gets better with the fact that most of the said service providers are always a call away.
Consider paperless systems
This sounds really hard. Just how is an office supposed to function after incorporating the use of paperless systems? Think of it this way. Printing reams of paper several times a day is bad on two accounts. First off, it is time consuming. Secondly, it is not friendly to the environment. It adds to the amount of office waste that you have to manage. That simply means that it is costly. Put signs like ‘Think Twice before Printing’ right beside the printer. Encourage everyone at the office to only print what’s necessary. Where one has to print several pages, encourage double sided printing. Remember that the main aim here is to ensure you reduce use of paper as much as possible.
It is easy to have responsible members of staff in your office. They may dispose office waste appropriately, just as you expect. Your insubordinate staff may however, let you down. This happens mostly with the cleaners. Fortunately, there is a quick fix solution for that. Simply have them trained or explain to them why you discourage incorrect rubbish disposal. This sounds really simple, but like you will find out, it is not. Cleaners may feel like you’re telling them how to go about their cleaning duties. Some may not understand why they can’t just put everything in the same bin. So take time to explain why you are strict about office waste management and why you are concerned about e-waste rubbish in Perth.
