Five ways to make your office more efficient

Office waste management solutions
Published: April 19, 2020

Office waste management solutions are a clever way to boost productivity in your office. Generally, when you think of a waste management plan, you think about keeping the office neat and tidy, and of making sure that everything is disposed of in an environmentally friendly responsible manner. You probably do not think about the efficiency of your employees as a benefit of waste management. However, there are many benefits to productivity by having the optimal methods of waste disposal in place. At Solo Resource Recovery, we will work with you to create a solution that is tailored for your needs. Here are five ways to make your office more efficient with the introduction of proper waste management.

If you do not quite have enough bin space in your regular collection, your employees are spending their time figuring out what to do with the build up of garbage. They are carting rubbish from bin to bin, trying to find one with spare space. They are removing items and trying to repack them into the bin at a higher density – which is not only a waste of time, it is also an occupational health and safety hazard. They are getting frustrated at this situation, which is bad for morale. Having adequate bin space is a must, but it can be difficult to get it right. At Solo Resource Recovery, we will listen to your needs and help you determine the volume of waste disposal that you need.

Secondly, a document destruction service can be a massive time saver for your office. Your employees are tasked with the time consuming activity of shredding confidential or sensitive documents. If you do not have a shredder, they are standing over the recycling bin attempting to shred the paperwork by hand. Otherwise, they are feeding paper into the shredder, which can feel like an endless task. It is far safer and easier to engage a document destruction service as part of your office’s plan for managing waste.

Having a recycling bin with clear instructions on what items are recyclable also saves time for your employees. Rather than having to spend time thinking about which items go in which bins, and looking it up when they cannot work it out, it will be obvious when it is printed on the lid or nearby. Working out the details of your recycling in the office will save time in the long run.

A fourth way to make your office more efficient with proper waste management is that it will ensure you are abiding by all laws concerning disposal of rubbish. It can be difficult to understand overlapping and changing laws at different levels of government, but it will create an expensive and time-consuming headache if you get it wrong. Make sure you are covered by entrusting your waste management to us at Solo Resource Recovery.

Finally, you can save on costs by ensuring that your recyclable rubbish is disposed of in the recycling bin instead of through landfill. Cardboard and paper takes up large amounts of space in the bin, and you are paying for that space. Cut your costs by having sufficient recycling capacity where it is needed.
