Food retailers generate large amounts of recyclable materials, like corrugated cardboard. Recycling cardboard not only trims on waste hauling costs but it generates significant revenue for a grocery chain, up into the millions of dollars with diligent recycling methods.  We’ve seen many retailers where proper employee training and clear signage promoting recycling can make a big difference!

Check out our most recent The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Recycling Cardboard to learn more about how you can save your supermarket money and teach your employees how recycling cardboard affects your bottom line.

Engaging your employees and educating them on the sustainability impacts of tasks like proper recycling is one of the many benefits of enrolling in the Grocery Stewardship Certification.  Please email us at gsc@manomet.org to learn more about how your store or grocery chain can get started!
