I was wondering if anyone had any good information on office recycling.
Currently, I am the only one (out of 30 employees) who recycles paper.
Everyone else throws it in the trash, including my boss.

We do recycle cardboard, but I was wondering if anyone had any good
resources I could check into.

I was giving my boss a hard time about recycling and he said that I could be
'in charge' of the company recycling program.  I believe it was half in
jest, but I'm sure if I could come up w/ something reasonable, I might get a
couple more people to recycle.

Thanks!

I'm happy to offer you a copy of our document "How to Recover Paper for
Recycling" - but I'll need your mailing address.  You can also check out our
website at:  www.afandpa.org.

In addition, you may want to check out the U.S. Conference of Mayors.  They
offer two documents: "Office Paper Recycling Guide" and "Recycling at Work: Make
it your Business".  You can call them at:  202/861-6674 or check out their
website at:  www.usmayors.org/USCM/recycle/ 

Lastly, EPA has a document: "Office Paper Recycling: An Implementation Manual". 
You can download this document from the epa website: www.epa.gov/oswer  - do a
search with the title and it should come up.  Or, you can get a hard copy by
contacting the RCRA hotline:  
800/424-9346.

Please contact me directly if you have any specific questions.

Sincerely,

Christine
