Need help? Need help? Which Recycling Stickers do I need? Easy-Peel Long Lasting Recycling Stickers & Labels

Many businesses recognise the importance of workplace recycling, which is easy to do now that so many common items are easy to dispose of. We offer recycling labels that cover the most commonly recycled materials you use on your business premises such as paper, plastics, metals, glass, textiles, computer equipment, mobile phones and other electrical equipment.

To ensure that items are safely and appropriately recycled in your workplace, staff and visitors must know that recycling is available. This is easier than ever by designating bins and receptacles for common types of recyclable materials and marking them clearly with eye-catching recycling labels or stickers.

Ensuring your bins are labelled correctly will encourage the correct disposal of waste items and recycling within your workplace. This, in turn, will help you comply with health and safety regulations that govern how waste should be dealt with.

Why Should I Recycle?

Recycling is the safest and most responsible option when it comes to disposing of most waste products. Many items need to be recycled in order to protect the environment and support the economy. Some business waste, such as ink cartridges, batteries and mobile phones, can be toxic and therefore harmful to the environment when they end up in landfills. Non-biodegradable waste may sit in landfills for hundreds of years, releasing toxic substances or greenhouse gases as it breaks down, as is the case with many plastics and textiles.

In addition, it can make sound economic sense to recycle most items, as recycling material into new goods is generally more efficient and invariably uses less energy than making new products from raw materials. As an example, Let’s Recycle claims that up to a third of all clothing bought in the UK ends up in landfills, and the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has suggested that this material, if reused or recycled, could generate up to £140m in revenue.

Therefore, recycling as much as possible will help to reduce landfill waste and the pollution caused by items breaking down in landfills, as well as the manufacturing of new products. Here at Seton we also provide mixed recycling stickers which act as reminders to encourage your family or colleagues to recycle

How Do I Recycle in my Business?

Most common items can now be recycled in various ways. Local authorities collect a lot of recycling door-to-door and may also provide drop-off points within your local community. You can also take your waste to some recycling centres or pay them to come by and pick it up. A lot will depend on the size of your business and how much recycling you generate.

Many companies that sell ink cartridges, for example, will now allow businesses and individuals to return empty cartridges for free. Most electrical items you use in your office can also be recycled, from computers and printers through to kettles and coffee makers. You can find out where your closest recycling centre is and exactly which items it will accept on the Recycle Now website.

What Can I Recycle?

A wide range of materials and items that you use in your business can be recycled, including some of the following common items:

  • Paper and card

  • Most plastics

  • Most metals

  • Most glass

  • Most textiles, including mixed textiles

  • Printer cartridges

  • Most packaging and many packing materials

  • Computers, laptops and printers

  • Other office equipment

  • Mobile phones

  • Small appliances such as kettles and coffee makers

  • Batteries, light bulbs and fluorescent tubes

What Recycling Labels Do I Need?

Which recycling labels you need in your business will depend on your individual circumstances and what type of waste you generate, but there is no doubt that clear and relevant recycling labels can be a real help in implementing a company recycling policy that everyone is aware of. Some of the labels you may need include: a general ‘please recycle’ sign, recycling labels for glass, plastics, textiles, but also recycling labels for hazardous waste or household waste, as well as recycling labels for metals, paper & electrical goods

Where Should Recycling Labels be Placed?

Recycling bin stickers should be placed in a prominent position on the container that is being used to collect a specific material. Recycle bin label stickers are often in a bright, bold colour to stand out against the usually dark and dull colour of many bins and recycling containers. Recycling sticker for bins allows for material-specific information to be placed on each recycling receptacle. You may also want to invest in bigger, more prominent recycle bin posters to draw attention to some less obvious recycling bins around your workplace.

WEEE Recycling Labels Explained

Our WEEE labels will ensure you adhere to the Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation, which requires all producers who manufacture, import, export, or distribute affected items within the EU to label the products with a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol.

Products affected by this legislation include items requiring power or containing a PCB (printed circuit board). The legislation aims to improve recycling of electronics by encouraging designers to create products that can be efficiently recycled.
