Keep Martin Beautiful is partnering with Keep America Beautiful to challenge corporate America and government to sign up for its Recycling at Work pledge. The pledge requires businesses, governments and institutional entities – such as school and hospitals – to commit to a 10 percent increase in the recycling of paper products, beverage containers, electronics and batteries in the workplace through a variety of actions by 2015.

Recycling at Work’s 2015 goal will be achieved through a series of approaches that include:

  • Increasing employee awareness of the availability of recyclable services and benefits of recycling in offices and other facilities;
  • Enhancing infrastructure and communications to enable greater recycling and diversion of the materials in offices and other facilities;
  • Identifying cost-effective opportunities to incorporate consideration of end-of-life recyclability and increased recycled content into the products purchased;
  • Reporting on progress each year through the Recycling at Work online system; and,
  • Inviting other organizations to take the Recycling at Work pledge.
