Recycle at work and school

Recycling at work often means coming up with a plan, getting everyone on board and designating someone to ensure implementation.

Resources such as the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District's Guide to office paper recycling in Northeast Ohio, offer a step-by-step explanation of what paper to recycle, setting up a collection system, educating employees, and negotiating with a recycler.

If your business would like to be proactive about recycling, a number of local recycling centers and private collection sites accept the following recyclable materials:

  • Aluminum cans
  • Cardboard Office paper
  • Boxboard
  • Newspaper
  • Junk mail
  • Magazines
