"This is a small step towards making an environmental difference, but in a Corporate Office we have few opportunities to make such a difference, and I want to see us do it, as this is the major waste we produce.
Let’s expand CH4’s environmental credentials and show we can be an environmentally friendly recycler as well.
Let’s do the right thing first time."

"Our biggest problem has been education and up until the introduction of the Paper To Paper Recycling Bins one of our nurses needed to check every paper bin for sharps.
We have had five different types of waste receptacles which will now be substantially reduced and I am only too happy to endorse this wonderful innovation which also looks good."

"My factory and administration areas had been using the round trash bins which needed to be emptied daily. The Paper To Paper Recycling Bins for the same foot print, hold more, need emptying less frequently and are easier for our cleaners.
Our staff have even ordered them for personal use at home.

“Penrith City Council implemented the Paper To Paper Recycling bins to replace existing general rubbish bins and separate waste paper bins. The objective was to save space, reduce underdesk clutter and provide for a more appealing solution. The bins have worked well with excellent feedback from employees. A recent audit of the waste stream has confirmed that far less contamination of the recycled paper is occurring. The result of less contamination means that the paper is suitable for recycling into new paper products rather than downcycling or sending to landfill.”

“All workstations in the council offices and libraries have or are being installed with the Paper To Paper Recycling bin as part of a corporate recycling program. The results are early but the bins have replaced the cardboard box and general rubbish bin to provide for more space and a tidier environment. A waste audit will be conducted shortly to monitor the effects of the program but early indications are that we are able to sort paper out from the general waste stream at source and the remaining waste stream, although co-mingled is put through a secondary sorting by a waste contractor.”
“The Paper To Paper Recycling bin is an excellent initiative to encourage high resource value recycling. By separating the material at source it reduces the need for expensive sorting of materials at a secondary stage. By reducing the rate of contamination in the office the material has a higher value in a secondary market.”

"Our biggest problem has been education and up until the introduction of the Paper To Paper Recycling bins one of our nurses needed to check every paper bin for sharps. This poses a significant OH&S issue. The sturdy plastic bin ensures that we don’t have an issue with cardboard bins becoming damp and contaminated with the added risk of airborne infections We have had five different types of waste receptacles which will now be substantially reduced and I am only too happy to endorse this wonderful innovation which also looks good."

“By promoting the separation of waste materials by the office worker I can ensure that the material that I collect has a destination other than landfill. The challenge is to educate the office worker to take the same approach to recycling as they do at home. The Paper To Paper Recycling bin provides the opportunity in a durable and easy way to recycle office paper.”
