How to set up an efficient waste collection for the offices of a company?

  • What waste is produced in my offices? In what quantities?

You absolutely must find an answer to these questions. Do an internal audit, observe employee trash cans, type of waste thrown, quantity, etc. This will help you select the best products for your needs.

Finally, take stock, this could be an opportunity to ban certain waste, the famous packaging of the lunch triangle sandwich for example!
Also spread the message that the best waste is the one that we do not produce ! It is often a habit of consumption or work that can easily be changed. The objective is not to achieve zero waste in a company, but to limit the production of waste.

At this stage, the choice of the sorting bin for offices will be more obvious.

You are about to change the operating habits of your employees. Like any change, you will encounter refractories. Not that they do not want to sort their waste, it is often the opposite, but that you must make them aware from the start of your process.

 

  • How to educate my employees?

It is certain that some of your employees sort their waste at home. A reminder of good practices in your company is still necessary, and you must educate other employees.

Here are some suggestions to help you make all your employees aware of the implementation of the selective sorting in your company:

AUDIT

Form a think tank, a working group to study the subject, from the audit to the choice of sorting bins to the awareness of other employees. An action carried out with collaborators will be better accepted and followed than carried out alone in your corner.

COMMUNICATION

Communicate on the fate of this waste. It is always more motivating to know why you are doing something.
Edit a small sorting guide, a guide to best practices, to slip into the internal journal, when submitting pay slips, on your website, in the form of posters, or via internal emailing
What waste for what bin, for what color of bin ...

SENSITIZATION

Remember to educate maintenance staff, whether they are in-house or waste collection is done through a cleaning company. They too are users of the bins, they are the ones who will empty and clean the bins every day!

UNIQUE DESIGN

Make the choice of design sorting bins. When we talk about a design bin, we are talking about an aesthetic bin but also and above all a functional bin, which will be accepted by all

Results

Bring some figures: at the end of the year, for example, make a quantified assessment of the waste collected, the savings made, the environmental gain, in greenhouse gas emissions equivalent, for example.

SOLIDARITY JOBS

Inform your employees that they are participating in the creation of solidarity jobs, these are often subsidized jobs that take care of the recycling of your waste.

  • Find the right service provider for the collection of your waste

The main thing is done, all the waste produced in your company is collected and sorted. It would be a shame if they weren't in good hands.

Choose a good provider for the collection of your waste. Receive several cleaning companies to measure their sensitivity to selective sorting. Get information from other companies, your town hall or community must be able to offer you solutions.

The color code of selective sorting in France, to better choose your sorting bins

Still a bit confusing for you? Here is the official sorting code for waste sorting in France:

The gray bin for residual waste

This gray bin can also be black. It accepts the “all-rounder”, that is to say the daily waste such as a handkerchief, an apple core or a banana peel, etc.

 

The blue bin for paper

The blue basket accepts all papers, colors or not, newspapers, company flyers, etc.

 

The yellow trash can for recyclable waste

This bin accepts all papers, newspapers, magazines (if a blue bin is not present), cardboard boxes, plastic bottles and flasks, aluminum cans.

 

The green bin for glass

All glass bottles will be thrown into this bin. On the other hand, table glasses (dishes) should not be thrown into this basket. The caps and lids must not be put on.
