Last year, the council gave its office-based employees two desktop bins one for white office paper and one for colour paper.
The council workers can then empty their own bins into larger containers sited near to photocopiers, kitchen or tea bay areas.
This has led to the volume of office paper being recycled increasing from an average of three tonnes per month to nearly five tonnes per month.
Hounslows waste reduction and recycling officer Jayshree Taank (pictured) said: Its been a really worthwhile exercise, the results of which speak for themselves.
The bins for the scheme were provided by Straight and use the colour-coded Slim Jim range.
