Building leases should require the landlord to provide both trash pick up and disposal as well as recycling. It is more expensive to have everything disposed of as trash then having a portion recycled. The recycled products have a market value so their disposal if usually very low or free, while trash disposal is not. Recycling also creates more jobs than sending trash to a landfill.
We waste SO much in paper towels. We have no other option for drying our hands. The waste bins are overflowing with paper and that is just the one bathroom, on one floor, in one building. Installation of hand dryers would save serious government resources and significantly lower the physical waste coming out of government facilities.
Every year dollars are spent on the removal of trash from the facilities. If paper were recycled, the amount of trash would be reduced, therefore reducing the costs of the trash removal services.
