3 Steps to Implementing your Successful Recycling Program
1. Get to Know Your Waste
Do a walk-through and look into your dumpster and other garbage bins you have. Conduct a waste audit to analyze the volume, composition,weight, and sources of your business or multi-family property's solid waste. Some haulers are willing to conduct waste audit for their customers.
2. Work with Your Hauler
Steps to Securing a Recycling Hauler:
- Find the best hauler for you-Ask your neighbors and other businesses and/or multi-family properties about their hauler's service and prices
- Get Price Quotes- You can contact the City's permitted haulers directly and ask for price quotes. To help you find the best quote for your property let haulers know that you are shopping around and fill out the Preparing to work with your hauler form. Use this form to answer the haulers questions during your phone call or site visit.
- Contracting a Hauler-Before contracting your hauler, ask them about what is important to you
3. Launch and Tweak Your Recycling Program
Once you have your know your waste and you have worked with your hauler. Your recycling containers are in place, your educational signage about the type of recyclables you property accepts are up in visible, high-traffic areas, you are ready to launch your program. You can throw together a quick social, present the program at your next meeting, or send memos to your tenants or staff/employees. Ensure that you are using the best method of communication to spread the word in your establishment.
Monitoring Your Program
Establish a schedule for monitoring your recycling program’s performance monthly. Monitoring your program from the start will help you identify and correct problems and track whether your recycling goals are being met.
Share your challenges and progress with employees, staff, and tenants and work with them on program improvements or modifications. You can post recycling totals, establish waste reduction goals, and even reward tenants or staff who are recycling correctly and opting to reuse or reduce materials, like using reusable water bottles, shopping bags, etc.
You can ask yourself several questions to check what is working and not working with your waste reduction efforts.
Do you need more recycling containers?
Are there enough custodial/volunteer personnel?
Are your participants sorting the recyclable materials correctly?
Is your recycler satisfied with the quality of material collected?
