If you’re ready to set up a recycling program for your beverage containers, it’s best to begin with a little planning. Consider the people that might need to be involved, set some ground rules up front and try to imagine what your successful recycling program might look like.
It’s all about the details
When you first set up a recycling program, it can be helpful to decide in advance what’s important to you and the people using the program and what will help keep things running smoothly.
Sometimes senior management, a condo board, municipality or another landowner needs to approve the program before the program begins.
Recyclers often choose to donate the containers or proceeds to a local club, school, charity or even an individual.
Someone needs to be responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of recycling bins and signage.
Keep your receipts from a Depot or pick-up service to track financial information and help measure your environmental impact.
