The place to start is to gain an understanding of what is currently being thrown away in your general waste. You don’t need to catalogue every apple core but try and build a picture up of the key waste types being disposed of. Once you know what your rubbish is composed off contact your local council or waste service provider to discover what can be recycled in your area and what the process is for collecting these items.
It’s best to start with the easy items when starting to recycle. Items such as paper, batteries, printer cartridges and plastics are the most common products to choose as they will contribute heavily to most company’s waste products.
