Paper Waste a Gold Mine for Publishers
There are many types of organizations to choose from, and many approaches to implementing a program. The best fit will depend on several factors:
The location of your facilities.
The types and volumes of paper and other waste streams your facilities generate.
The kind of systems you have in place for environmental management.
The industry you're in.
The current condition of your relationships with stakeholders.
Guiding principles for a successful paper waste management and recycling program are:
Selecting partners and service providers with care.
Setting reasonable objectives and stretch goals.
Aligning the program with corporate strategy and environmental management systems.
Regularly communicating with stakeholders.
Keeping the program simple and easy to maximize participation.
