How do companies reduce the amount of waste they have?

    The first any company trying to reduce waste should take is probably to cut back on the need to use many materials in the first place.  This can be done by using less plastic or Styrofoam packaging, encouraging employees not to print information that could simply be stored online, and employing various green technologies to use energy and resources more efficiently.  Second, a company can divert some of the waste it does create from the landfill by recycling it.  Paper, wood, and e-waste are all materials for which many US companies could increase their recycling rates.  By minimizing resources used and recycling as much as possible of what’s left over, companies can greatly reduce their negative impact on the planet.
