If the manufacturer of your office equipment doesn't offer recycling,
your old stuff to schools or nonprofits. You'll prevent toxic materials from entering a landfill, you won't have to pay to dispose of the material and you'll be eligible for a tax deduction. If you're in manufacturing, ask your suppliers for recycled materials--they may even be less expensive than new materials.
If you're not already recycling all your paper, bottles and cans, get cracking! You may save money by reducing the amount of trash you need to toss in the landfill. For their part, the Red Sox will add more recycling bins throughout the park and hold a fifth inning recycling stretch.
