Waste Reduction Ideas

Waste reduction focuses on eliminating waste—not buying products that generate waste—rather than controlling, treating or managing waste. Businesses can gain a competitive advantage through materials reduction and reuse. Benefits include:
  • reductions in energy use and associated fees
  • reductions in garbage collection and disposal fees
  • increases in efficiency, productivity, and the bottom line
  • enhancements to business image within the community and to customers
  • recognition and awards

Sunnyvale's Commercial Recycling staff is available, at your convenience, to conduct a waste assessment for your business to help you realize your waste reduction goals. In addition, the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) provides a multitude of waste reduction and recycling strategies and resources for businesses.

One easy step your business can take right away is to reduce the amount of junk mail using CalRecycle's junk mail reduction strategies.
