At Work

Over 75% of what is being thrown away at work in San Mateo County could be recycled!

Half of the garbage in most cities is created by the commercial sector. This includes businesses, hotels, hospitals, and apartment complexes. Reducing this waste not only helps the environment, but can also result in cost savings. Garbage service can cost a business thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars each year — money that literally goes right to the dump!

There are a number of practices that businesses and institutions can adopt to reduce the amount of waste they throw away, helping their bottom line in the process. RecycleWorks can help you get started.
