If you are a business owner, or are in charge of managing the waste removal for your company, consider these important reasons why you should recycle that waste instead of just throwing it away.
It is becoming increasingly more important that not only individuals recycle, but also businesses, because of the higher volume of waste created, a businesses environmental footprint makes a much larger impact than the average person.
