The ultimate goal is to recycle as much as possible while reducing waste pollution in the recycling stream. Depending on the collection of recyclables, this can reduce costs or in some cases even generate income.

For office collection, many offices offer desk recycling baskets with matching hanging wastebaskets. Because the hanging bin is smaller, it encourages users to recycle as many items as possible. You can also take help from office recycling services to clean the environment of your office.

An equally important part of an effective office recycling program is the use of clear and accurate markings for each collection stream. People recycle most effectively when they have great confidence in which materials are used for which electricity.

Signs should use pictures and words whenever possible, and using a consistent color scheme will make identification easier. Some cities use a color scheme that uses blue for recycling (bottles, cans, paper, etc.), green for organic compostable waste, and black for all other waste. In the old system that separated paper and boxes/bottles, it was customary to use blue for paper, green for bottles/boxes, and black for waste.

If you choose to use a container to collect different streams, look for a container with limited openings that matches what you are collecting. Special recycling caps are available for most public recycling bins.
