Recycle more and landfill less by using these conveniently located Under-the-Desk Personal Recycling Bins and the Mini Landfill Bin. Please note, the Under-the-Desk Boxes and the Mini Landfill Bin are NOT serviced by IPF Custodial Staff. Each individual is responsible for transferring the contents of the Under-the-Desk Boxes and the Mini Landfill Bin into the corresponding Hallway Station Recycling or Landfill Bin or Common Area Intermediate Recycling Boxes (if applicable).
The Under-the-Desk Personal Recycling Boxes serve as the midway point in the three stage approach to convenient recycling. Stage 1) Under-the-Desk Personal Recycling Boxes placed at individual work stations. Stage 2) Common Area Intermediate Boxes in shared spaces within the office suite/work area. Stage 3) Hallway Recycling Bins located in public spaces, which must be placed in approved locations if they are to be serviced by IPF Custodial Staff.
We suggest utilizing the Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes, and transferring the contents periodically to the Common Area Intermediate Box, then coordinating with colleagues to periodically empty the shared Intermediate Box into the corresponding Hallway Bin. While it might seem excessive at first, and may not be necessary in all locations, making recycling accessible and convenient is a crucial factor in diverting material away from the landfill. If its determined that Intermediate Boxes are not necessary, we encourage simply transferring the contents from Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes into the corresponding Hallway Bin.
