Busch Systems International, a Barrie, Ontario-based manufacturer of recycling, waste and compost containers, has partnered with Keep America Beautiful (KAB), Stamford, Conn., on the Recycling at Work program. Recycling at Work is a voluntary national effort designed to increase recycling in the workplace.

To encourage participation, Busch Systems is offering a 15 percent discount on recycling bins to those companies that become a pledge partner through Recycling at Work. This offer includes a variety of bin styles for office settings, from economical deskside bins to aesthetically distinctive receptacles appropriate for the executive suite, Busch Systems says.

After taking the pledge, businesses will receive a promotional code that can be used to purchase recycling containers online at http://recyclingatwork.org/pledge-partner-exclusive-offer.

“We’re very excited to be a part of this effort,” Elizabeth Lightfoot, regional manager at Busch Systems, says. “One of the barriers businesses must face when it comes to recycling is obviously the cost involved in purchasing bins and containers for collection.”

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, less than 10 percent of businesses in the United States were recycling as of 2011.

“The benefits as a result of increasing recycling rates are substantial,” states Lightfoot. “Hopefully, we can help KAB in their efforts by making it easier for companies right across the country to purchase bins.”
