Getting your workforce on board is key to ensuring your business meets the requirements of the new Regulations. There will be lots of help available through 2013 to help you change working practices. Zero Waste Scotland are currently developing a suite of materials to help you roll out recycling in your workplace. Among these are a Poster Creation Tool that will allow you to create signage and motivational posters for your staff. You will also find case studies that demonstrate how businesses just like yours have adapted to comply with the Regulations. In addition, your waste management company may be able to advise on how best to engage with your workforce.
Many of your employees should already be familiar with the concept of recycling from their experience both at home and in the wider environment. Some will welcome the chance to recycle at work and they may prove helpful in communicating the benefits to colleagues.
