Recycling doesn’t just take place at home. In fact, throughout North America, huge volumes of recyclables are generated every day in the offices, breakrooms and boardrooms we call “work.”

Unfortunately, not every item placed in those recycling bins is actually recyclable. In fact, much of the items are trash, and this is having enormous consequences on the long-term viability of recycling.

The good news? Starting now, you can help solve this problem by educating your fellow workers on how to recycle often and recycle right.
