How to start a recycling project in your office
The first step is to identify a Sappi ReFibre recycling agent in your area (find a list of agents below). You can also contact the regional manager in your area for help and advice. Sappi paper waste recycling bins are available from our regional offices, and can be placed near photocopiers, in resource libraries or in mail rooms. Clearly display a list of paper types that can be recycled close to the bin.
The amount of waste paper generated in your office will determine how frequently you can have the paper collected. Due to the costs associated with transportation, some agents will only collect from your office once you have sufficient paper to fill a bakkie (small utility vehicle). Until then, paper waste recycling bins can be used to store recyclable paper in a suitably dry store room, basement or garage.
Alternatively, you may also choose to deliver recyclable paper to your nearest recycling facility. Usually this task can easily be worked into standard delivery schedules to save on costs.
