Once you have laid all of the groundwork for your recycling program, it’s time to launch it with a blend of fanfare to gain engagement from your workforce, and direction to help make sure they’re participating successfully.

The following documents are examples of launch day handouts or emails that will help staff understand why you are engaging in a new recycling program and to let them know how their involvement can make a difference. You can use these templates or simply derive inspiration from them to create a communication that is well suited to your team.
