Why Australian businesses who don’t recycle are missing out

 

Does your workplace recycle? More than 9 out of 10 households recycle, and employees increasingly expect their workplaces to do the same.

 

 

In workplaces that recycle, there is higher staff morale, greater team cohesion, higher productivity, and longer staff retention.

 

 

New research shows that 76% of businesses believe reducing waste is part of being a sustainable and ethical business. Yet every year Australian businesses generate over 12.5 million tonnes of waste with almost half (46%) going straight to landfill.

 

 

Plus, it’s estimated that 70% of business waste destined for landfill can be reused or recycled.

 

 

John and Garry talk to Brad Gray, head of campaigns at Planet Ark, who helps explain what can and can not be recycled and how it can help your  businesses into the future.
