With a significant increase in public pressure, many companies all over the world are feeling the necessity to develop more sustainable, environmentally friendly business practices.
While enterprise-grade materials may have formerly been discarded into the trash by business officials or been subject to government-subsidized recycling programs, according to a recent article in The New York Times, there has been a major outcry from environmentally conscious consumers that the companies they patronize share their values and become more proactive about environmentally friendly practices.
Additionally, the article states that municipalities are hemorrhaging a huge amount of funds and are seeking to find more cost-effective ways to recycle corporate goods.
Consequently, there has been a call for "extended producer responsibility," in which the companies generating goods to be recycled are responsible for handling them properly and ensuring that they do not stagnate in a landfill.
For example, according to the article, Coca-Cola – one of the most respected global corporations in the world – has developed strategic partnerships in order to ensure that all its bottles and packaging materials are discarded in environmentally conscious ways.
Canadian companies are following suit as well. In fact, a report published by the Vancouver Sun states that British Columbia is the first in the world to develop full extended producer responsibility.
Considering such, companies in Canada that want to stay ahead of the curve and show the public its commitment to sustainability can do so by partnering with a product disposal service. These professionals with extensive knowledge of the best practices of paper, media and product disposal needs can facilitate the full scope of a company's waste removal so that officials do not have to struggle with how to handle it internally.
This will mitigate stress on corporate decision makers and allow them to rest easy that their unnecessary or outdated items are rid of properly.
