The recycling has been redesigned by modern methods to make it more efficient and useful for modern facilities. A design-oriented methodology is used by the methods to focus better on the product that provides an advantage to each and every group involved in the process of facility recycling under the guidance of experts.
This is the reason behind the continuous success in helping the facilities all over the world to waste less and recycle more and more as much as possible.
It offers great benefits to the facility managers also as it simplifies the process of recycling by introducing flexible recycling stations in the open plan design of today’s facilities.
Any facility can introduce only those streams that they require and using them in an appropriate manner in space, their use can also be optimized.
The method requires 30 to 50 employees per recycling stations. The rates of recycling can be increased if separates bins are placed at the place where recyclables are generated for an example -organic bin for the kitchen and the paper bin for the photocopier.
The organization saves the money and time as well with the help of communal recycling stations because it requires fewer bins and liners to be purchased as compared to the conventional options. It also cut the cost of waste disposal when the recycling amount if more and wasting amount is less.
Tips for Recycling for Facility Managers:
1.Target Realistic goals
Start the process by focusing on the products that might be easy to gather. The team should have the aim to recycle the maximum amount of products that are generated at the facility that needs minimum efforts. Example – The generation of waste paper at printing plants where the focus is on the off-cuts of the waste paper that cannot be used again instead of on the lesser items. The strategy should be made in such a manner that it can gather all the items that can be recycled easily.The major expenses in the recycling process are the cost to labor and the cost of bringing the recycled items.
The managers must ensure to locate the recycling containers near to the source of the product which needs to be recycled. If the location will be right then it can cut the cost of transportation and unnecessary expenditure. Another reason to pale the containers near to the source of generation because people generally won’t prefer to walk the long distance to drop the items that need to be recycled in the trashed container. So it is better to place them as close as possible to the source destination.
3.Focus on the Quality
Try to focus on the quality as compared to the quantity. The manager holds an image at the marketplace and it gets affected if the recycled product is contaminated or of low quality. This will also affect revenue generation.
4.Maintain a record
The managers should maintain a detailed record from the initiation of the recycling program up to the end. It should contain an analysis of the progress of the process of recycling.It should also have the count that which types of commodities that are been recycled by the company, what was the source of generation, how much time required to recycle it, the money generated out of it, etc.
