Businesses Take the Recycling at Work Pledge!

A growing number of businesses are already recycling. Not only does this have a tangible environmental benefit, it also helps to promote your brand. America Recycles Day makes it easy to recycle. Simply follow the Recycling at Work 10-Step Action Plan to building a successful employee-driven recycling program (see list of complimentary tools and resources at the bottom of the page).
