Helping you to reduce, reuse and recycle your business waste, the Waste Aware Business site now has a brand new look.
Not only does the site now have a new author for the blog, but it also has a completely new look as well. My first task as the new author is to thank Rachel for entertaining us all over the last few months. It is a hard act to follow, but I will do my best to keep everyone entertained and amused as well as providing insightful information about what is currently happening in the world of business waste.
Modern businesses are constantly changing, and as a result the way in which businesses deal with waste is also changing. The new Waste Aware Business has been adapted to keep up with these changes and offer its users the most up to date information about how businesses can reduce, reuse and recycle their waste and save money. Last week, there was an article in the Scotsman highlighting the positive correlation between waste production and costs, and how businesses are striving to reduce waste so as to reduce costs. This article is well worth a read and is available to view by clicking on the above link, or by going to our News section. Here you will find a variety of different informative stories that relate to business waste and we also list events that you might be interested in attending.
The Recycling Directory is where businesses of all sizes can search for specific materials that they need to get recycled in their local area. It lists over 500 collection services provided by local authorities, private contractors and community enterprises and offers a variety of different information that can help you recycle nearly 80 different materials. The directory is straightforward to use, however, should you require any further information about the resource, we now have a number of how to guides on the site that have been designed to make business recycling even easier.
The site has a variety of different resources that can be used to help raise awareness within your workplace. One such resource is an online poster creator that enables you to design your own recycling posters and tailor them specifically for the recycling needs of your business. This offers you the opportunity to get creative and promote recycling at the same time.
I have only mentioned a few of the sites great features; the site has so much more to offer including case studies, regulatory information and a variety of other resources that can help businesses to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste. I have given you a taster of what the site has to offer, I would now recommend that you explore the site yourself and familiarise yourself with all that it has to offer.
