Towards the binless office

A serviced office provider has removed all waste bins from its head office.

Business Environment said it hopes to encourage its employees to recycle at work like they do at home. The company said it will roll out the scheme across all its 21 business centres in 2012.

David Saul, manager director of Business Environment, said: “Recent Defra research shows that businesses across the UK have the potential to save up to £18bn a year by taking steps to reduce waste.

“By removing bins, we are helping foster a green office culture by empowering our employees to take a more holistic view to recycling, taking responsibility for the waste they produce, while benefiting our bottom line.”

The firm said it hopes the scheme will save it more than £1,000 a year and reduce waste by 87% or 1.85 tonnes.
