We’re now very aware of managing our waste disposal here in the UK and recycling is no longer just a buzz word but something most individuals and companies consider when planning their rubbish collection and managing their waste. However, if you have your own company, are you aware of the benefits of recycling and how that can impact your company? Cherry Hill Waste, providers of cost effective waste disposal and skip hire in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, are here to tell you a number of reasons you should recycle:
1. It helps our environment
Gone are the days when we used to burn all our waste in the UK, which led to various chest and lung diseases and caused massive pollution. The burning of waste had a profound impact on the ozone layer and international governments have been working to reverse its destruction for years. Practicing good recycling means that harmful gases aren’t released into the atmosphere, which also protects our plants and animals. It also means that the air we breathe in has better quality, so it’s good all round practice and better for the environment. Your waste management company can also pick up any hazardous goods and make sure that they are disposed of in a safe manner, so you can have peace of mind that you have done your bit to make the world greener.
2. It’s good for the reputation of your company
If you don’t recycle, it may affect how your clients see you. Conversely, if you make a point of recycling, your customers will see you in a better light. Corporate social responsibility is high on everyone’s list right now and people and companies want to partner with those who are committed to a better world for all of us.
3. Reduce costs
You can cut down on your production costs in the long term if you recycle wisely. Think of all the paper, glass, plastic, steel and oil that is used on any given day or week. When you recycle, there is less need for natural resources to be used, so the cost of these items will decrease in the long run. Think of what you can re-use in-house too, and see how that affects your bottom line.
4. Proper planning can make you more profitable
In order to reduce waste, streamlining and stock control are key. You can make your company more profitable by reducing the amount that you throw away. The less thrown away, the more gets used so your margins become better. Factories, restaurants and supermarkets can add up to 10% to their profits by managing their waste correctly.
So, there’s just some good reasons to recycle. We’re sure you can think of a few more!
