Moving Towards a Greener Business Practice

There is so much thought, stress, and hard work that goes into running a business. The last thing any business owner wants to put thought into is a recycling plan, but we guarantee it’s worth it to at least consider the possibility of one. Boston Junk provides a commercial recycling service so that your company can stay focused while we haul away the items you no longer need and then dispose of them accordingly. If you’re feeling unsure about your current recycling system or are looking to implement one for the first time, we’re here to assist.

Let’s say you don’t have a process set up to recycle the various types of material produced by your company yet. You’ve been looking around at all the neighboring businesses who seem to already have it figured out, and it looks like way too much work. However, you do care about the environment and even recycle in your own home. You also start to realize how much customers care about Green practices in the businesses they frequent. You’re certain you’d like to start a recycling program in your company, you just don’t know where to start.

We realize the process can be overwhelming, but you can be sure Boston Junk is here to help every step of the way. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible as you and your employees start transitioning into a more sustainable future. Below are some tips we have as you begin installing a new recycling program within your business:


It’s one thing to start a new program, and another for employees to be aware of it. Ensure that everyone knows what’s going on and what the new program will mean for the business operation moving forward. The more you communicate, the more likely it is that the program will be successful.


Some of your employees may already be familiar with recycling—what goes in the trash vs. the recycling bin. It’s best not to assume that everyone is familiar with the process. In fact, you may even need to do your own research and learning. Whether it’s through emails, team meetings, or infographics, it’s important to make sure everyone knows the ins and outs of what they can and cannot recycle.

Make it Easy

Place recycling bins in the areas that are most accessible to your employees, such as the break room. The easier it is for people to recycle, the more likely they are to choose that option over just throwing the item in the trash.

When you work with Boston Junk, you’ll be able to set up a regular schedule for your recyclables to be picked up, making your part in the process so much simpler. We know that every business is unique and will work with you to create a customized plan for the most efficient service. We hope you’ll see the value in commercial recycling and that your company will come to love doing their part to protect the environment. We know we do!
