Now imagine how much waste is thrown away each day in an office or workplace. Recycling in the workplace is a great place to encourage employee involvement while raising company morale - in fact employees who feel that they can make an impact on the environment while on the job are usually more satisfied at work than those who don’t.

Composting Tips

In today’s world, the concept of recycling is becoming increasingly more important. Millennium Waste offers commercial and residential recycling services, which makes it easier for you to help create a sustainable environment for future generations. We recycle glass, cardboard, paper, aluminum, and plastic – but why stop there? Learn how you can utilize disposed organic materials such as food scraps, leather, and dead plants to the max by turning them into rich, nutrient filled soil that can be used to fertilize your garden. The soil is produced through the hard work of microorganisms that break down the materials you choose to put in your compost. In order for these microorganisms to perform as you wish, you will have to provide them with water, oxygen and, of course, food. Composting is a fun, cheap, and efficient way of acquiring fertilizer for your garden, and it is a great opportunity to teach your children about the biological processes that occur in nature.
