As Recycling Specialists, we supervise the collection of recyclable materials from designated areas throughout the institution according to the company’s established procedures as well as federal and state regulations. We document the chemical or biological nature of all recyclable material before each pick-up and answer any question from waste producers regarding the recycling program such as costs, efficacy, and reusability of the new product. We also watch the flow of recycled materials and coordinate with the Recycling Manager in order to suggest, and implement appropriate recommendations to adjust the frequency of pickups and the number of bins provided.
- ensure the correct disposal of any chemical or medical material that has been improperly placed in recycling bins
- visit local schools, and attend community gatherings to promote the recycling process
