One way to give your efforts a boost is to request a FREE Green Team Kit and use it to educate and motivate your co-workers. The FREE Green Team Kit includes:
  • Durable canvas shopping bags*
  • Durable, reusable travel beverage cups*
  • Helpful waste reduction tools loaded on a flash drive*
  • Recycling collection containers
  • Recycling decals and stickers
*Bags, travel cups and flash drives are available only as supplies last.



Who can request a FREE Green Team Kit?

Businesses with five or more employees* are eligible to receive a FREE Green Team Kit. Any business may request free workplace recycling assistance that includes an on-site evaluation, recycling decals and stickers and recycling collection containers.

How do I request a FREE Green Team Kit?

Businesses with five or more employees can sign up for a waste evaluation through our online order form. A Washington County Solid Waste & Recycling Program staff person will contact you to schedule an on-site waste evaluation. Following the on-site waste evaluation, you will be provided a series of recommendations for improving workplace recycling in addition to the FREE Green Team Kit to help motivate your staff or co-workers.

What should I do with my FREE Green Team Kit?

Once you receive your FREE Green Team Kit, what you do with it will be up to you. You could recognize employees that take the extra step to reduce waste with a durable shopping bag. Or encourage a fellow co-worker to stop using disposable coffee cups by providing them a reusable cup. After you receive your FREE Green Team Kit, gather green-minded staff to form a team. Together, review the tools in the kit to determine how to improve recycling and waste prevention at your workplace.
