You could be missing out on a lot of benefits if your business isn’t recycling. There are some tangible and substantial benefits for recycling which are not just about helping the environment. They include cost savings, job creation, better workplaces, staff engagement, and more.
As per David Morris, “The case for recycling is strong. The bottom line is clear. Recycling requires a trivial amount of our time. Recycling saves money and reduces pollution. Recycling creates more jobs than landfilling or incineration. And a largely ignored but very important consideration, recycling reduces our need to dump our garbage in someone else’s backyard. “
Let us be reminded of recycling our waste.
David Morris is co-founder of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and currently ILSR’s distinguished fellow. He wrote many essays on public policies which have received wide media coverage in the US.
