Recycling at Schmidt Associates is a personal mission for some of the Schmidt Associates workforce. In 2007, Schmidt Associates focused its efforts on it recycling program. Wastebaskets at people’s desks were changed into paper recycling receptacles and centralized trash cans were provided for non-recyclable trash. This made recycling much more convenient for everyone and the the results showed vast improvements.
Recycling for the Schmidt Associates is not collected by a service though. The products are collected, weighed, and transported to a local plant in an employee’s truck. See chart below for a breakdown of the recycling since it started being tracked in 2009. The numbers for cardboard have spiked over the last few months due to the office renovation. There were roughly 275 pounds collected in April and May.
