Recycling is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways your facility can put its best "green" foot forward. The more material you recycle, the less dependent you become on waste disposal. Although recycling has an associated cost, when you consider the total bottom line, recycling makes a lot more sense economically and environmentally than does disposal. Placing recycling bins in strategic locations at your facility not only provides patrons with opportunities to recycle, but it also shows that you are making an effort to be a good environmental steward. Studies show that more patrons are drawn to those facilities that offer "green" alternatives such as recycling and reuse.
