Are you an office owner or manager in London? Or do you work in an office within London? Well, I got news for you! Each year, over 80.6 milliones tonnes of office waste is generated annually across the UK. This comprises of about 24% of the entire waste we generate as a country. The interesting thing is this; despite 70% of office waste being recyclable, only a small portion of this waste ends up in recycling plants. The rest is carelessly thrown in bins and dumped in landfills. Here at Express Waste Removals, we always emphasis on the importance of combining office waste clearance with eco friendly practices.
It’s not enough that a rubbish removal company has cleared your office of all waste and rubbish. Where is the waste taken from there? Office owners and workers ought to ensure that all their office waste is removed and disposed of in an eco friendly manner.
Check out this guide on how to do proper office waste clearance in London;
- First and foremost, sensitize those working in the offices on the importance of embracing eco friendly practices. Office workers are the first line of defense when it comes to effective waste management. Educate them on the need for generating less waste and putting recyclable waste in a different bin. Polythene bags, plastic bottles; these can be minimized by the office employees carrying their own water, food, and bags. Generating less waste makes the office tidier and lowers your waste collection bills.
- Sorting office waste; 45% of the papers printed in offices end up in the trash bins by the end of the day. Offices are gradually migrating to paperless transactions, thanks to the advent of computers. But even as such, papers and printing materials are all recyclable. In order to avoid such ending up in landfills, office workers ought to sort their waste before throwing it at the nearest bin. By working with professional rubbish removal companies, offices can have different bins located strategically. Recyclable waste can be thrown into one bin, while other unrecyclable rubbish is put in another. This makes things easier for the Removal Company and increases the likelihood that whatever can be recycled will end up in recycling plants.
- Regular waste clearance; an average adult person spends more time at work, than at home. It has been proven again and again that a clean, tidy working space helps increase productivity. Make arrangements with your rubbish removal company to have your rubbish bins emptied as frequently as needed. The waste may be removed daily, bi weekly, or weekly depending on how much is being generated. The last thing you want is customers and clients being met by the subtle stench of office waste. Even where there’s no stench, the sight of an overflowing office bin is quite a turn off.
- Cleaning up; a responsible rubbish removal company ensures that they clean up before taking the waste away for disposal. Bins have to be cleaned and disinfected or better still, replaced with fresh ones during every clearance. The floor, corridors and driveway should also be cleaned up to ensure no traces of waste and rubbish are left behind.
