Is your office cluttered with several items that hinder your productivity? Are you looking for ways to do your part in saving the environment by starting a recycling program at the office? If you answered yes, then you are probably thinking about other items that can be recycled outside of aluminum cans, paper waste, magazines, newspapers, shipping supplies, file folders, and cardboard. Here are 4 overlooked items found in your office that can also be recycled to help you boost productivity while helping the environment.

Electronics

Do you remember that microwave tucked away in one corner of the break room that has been broken for ages? Do you also remember passing by that unrepairable bulky printer in the hallway? Do you remember when someone said the laminator malfunctioned but you forgot about it, until now? The microwave, the printer, and the laminator are all electronic items that can be recycled and are called e-waste. Other e-waste items that can be recycled are fax machines, VCRs, computers, and cellphones.

Light Bulbs

Like a scene from a horror movie, that flickering and buzzing fluorescent light fixture has just been bothering everyone at the office for quite some time. Now it is time to get rid of it. Fluorescent bulbs can also be added to your list of items that can be recycled.

Food

Perhaps someone forgot that they brought their lunch and decided to eat out during their break. Weeks later, their lunch is rotting away in the break room fridge, which is starting to emit a foul smell. Maybe your coworker forgot that they threw a banana peel in their paper wastebasket, and now the office is being invaded by fruit flies. Food waste is another overlooked item that can be recycled.

Keys

Has your office recently changed its locks? Do you now have a set of keys that can no longer be used? Any keys that are made of metal can be recycled. Door keys, file cabinet keys, and office keys are often overlooked office items that can be added to your recycling list.


These are only to mention 4 commonly overlooked items that can be recycled. Perhaps you have done a walkthrough of the office and found an overwhelming amount of items that you can recycle. You have probably just found out that the trash receptacles you currently have will not suffice. Consider a dumpster rental to help you save time and save money when recycling these overlooked recyclable items in your office.
