Office Clean Out Tips

We often get inquiries about waste services for an office clean out, here are some tips for undertaken an office clean up.

  1. Have a quick chat on recycling awareness, the purpose of the clean out and steps that everyone can take to reduce waste in their everyday lives. Focus on the financial and environmental costs associated with waste production and highlight the potential savings to the company that could then be reinvested elsewhere.
  2. Perhaps providing company branded water bottles and/or reusable coffee cups might be a good first step to encouraging waste reduction.
  3. Create teams of people and designate them to a certain space. Whether that be a board room, kitchen, hallway etc
  4. Make it fun, put on some music and perhaps have some light refreshments arranged for afterwards
  5. Have designated bins for general & paper/recyclable waste somewhere that is easily accessible by all or designate a drop of point for all waste and have someone that then separates it correctly in to each bin.
  6. Any cardboard boxes need to be flattened down and remove all Sellotape before putting it in the recycling bin.
  7. Put measures in place to reduce future waste build up by suggesting that there are no individual bins at desk but rather a central waste disposal point with clear signage as to what items go in each bin.

 If you have too much to clear out, do not overfill the bins instead you could drop off bulky items, electrical goods or hazardous waste to your local amenity site. You can find your nearest recycling centre here.  If you wish to find out more about the process of using one of our amenity sites then read our blog on ‘Getting To Know Your Local Amenity Site’ here.
