SERIOUS MONDAY: EMPLOYERS URGED TO SUPPORT CAN RECYCLING

 

If the lack of recycling containers at work drives you to distraction, you’ll welcome a new initiative which aims to put this right. 

According to the Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation (Alupro), although most people now recycle their drinks cans at home, the same can’t be said about their habits at work.

Alupro estimates that drinks consumed at work accounts for 30 per cent of drink cans used in the UK, and it has launched a new campaign called Every Can Counts, to encourage businesses to set up recycling schemes.  

Successful pilot schemes have already taken place and if you’ve visited a university campus recently, chances are that you’ll have seen the distinctive cardboard bins that Alupro hopes to see rolled out to all businesses.  

It hopes to encourage employers to get involved by pointing out the business benefits – which include lower rubbish disposal costs and demonstrating their commitment to sustainability. 

And it is urging employees to make sure their employers hear about the scheme so 

if you would like to get your firm involved, you can log on here for more information and to download screensavers and wallpaper. 

(Personally, I know of at least three friends who will welcome this campaign with open arms because at the moment they carry their empty cans home for recycling rather than simply bin them.) 🙂
