AF&PA Releases Workplace, Community Recycling Guides

Commercial property owners and managers concerned with sustainability and community recyclers have new resources to help them build and improve upon their recycling programs thanks to updated recycling guides recently unveiled by the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA). The guides are free and available at paperrecycles.org.

The workplace recycling guide provides tips on establishing a workplace recycling program and on educating and motivating employees. The community recycling guide encourages strong communication and provides tips on educating citizens on the importance of recycling. Examples of previous AF&PA Recycling Award-winning programs provide real life experience, and are featured both in the guides and online.

“As a result of industry leadership, community efforts, and the dedication of millions of Americans, recycling has become one of our nation’s greatest environmental success stories,” said Donna Harman, president and CEO of AF&PA. “We are pleased to present additional resources designed to help businesses and communities build and strengthen their paper recycling programs.”

Visit paperrecycles.org for the updated guides, information on the 2010 AF&PA Recycling Awards, statistics, case studies, and a variety of other free resources.
