Trash Reduction Tips for Businesses
Set Up A Recycling Program
Place bins for paper, plastic and glass around the office to encourage employees to recycle throughout the day.
Keep dumpster lids closed
Keeping dumpster lids closed and in proper working condition minimizes storm water’s ability to impact the trash inside.
Dispose of litter
Regular sweeping of any impervious surface, especially around storm drains, may prevent storm water pollution.
Volunteer for the Department of Transportation Adopt-a-Highway program to pick up litter along our highways. It’s a way for environmentally conscious companies help keep trash off the roadways and litter out of our storm drains.
