Overview

Staff training ideas

  • Ask for ideas on how a scheme may work, as they may have spotted opportunities or issues which you have not considered;

  • Provide clear instructions on what they should do with different waste streams or recyclables to help you meet your new recycling obligations;

  • Provide training to permanent, seasonal and temporary workers. Use orientation training to ensure new starters can recycle from day one, with regular training and reminders for all employees;

  • Share information about recycling via regular updates at team meetings and on staff noticeboards so that employees hear about the differences their actions are making and

  • Ask for feedback if recycling systems are not working well, ensure employees feel listened to and that issues are identified promptly before they cause bigger problems.
