Operation GO’s goals are to establish and maintain active recycling programs of office wastes, to reduce the usage of paper, and to increase the procurement of paper containing recycled materials. This program is free to businesses of Fort Smith and establishes sustainability initiatives to include office recycling, including paper, cardboard, and plastic/steel/tin beverage containers.
Participation in this program is an effort to conserve natural resources and protect the environment. These efforts will achieve the following results:
Reduce waste disposal volumes
Conserve forest lands and other valuable resources
Divert waste from the Fort Smith Landfill
Decrease harmful emissions to the environment
The EPA estimates that 90% of all office waste by weight is paper. Up to 77% of the solid waste generated in a commercial establishment can be recycled. To learn more about Operation GO, call our office today.
