If your office has not been cleaned up and arranged for a while, there is no better time than the present for you to start doing it. Unfortunately, because of the massive workload in most work places, very little time and effort is put in to the neatness of the office. This leads to mountains of clutter in the office that never gets sorted or disposed of and this in turn will usually lead to a higher expenditure for the office. As an example, in most cases, you will have a certain thing that you need chucked away in the store room but because it is a mess, you or your staff would not know that you already have it and would opt to buy a new one instead of using the one you already have. This can happen on a small scale such as printing of documents that have already been printed and it can also happen on a bigger scale such as investing in printers, scanners and other machinery that your office already has in hand.
Clearing up the clutter
The first thing you will need to do is to start clearing out the clutter in your office. You can either choose to ask your staff to come in on a holiday to help out voluntarily in exchange for lunch and drinks provided or you can choose to take a day off from usual office routine on a regular working day in order to clear out all of the clutter in the office. Most offices will usually invest money and look for photocopiers to buy instead of using the one they already have in the office that is collecting dust in a store room somewhere. This can be a massive expense for the office and this is where you save money through clearing out the clutter.
You can also choose to sell your printers because you need to reduce the amount of printing that is being done in the office. We live in a virtual era where most or all communication and file sharing can be done online. Therefore excessive printing is a waste of money when the document can simply be emailed between staff members. If you really need printer services urgently, you can have it done outside.
While clearing out the clutter, you are guaranteed to have a massive amount of paper waste. You need to contact a recycling company and give them all of this paper after which you need to implement rules to make sure that you do not collect this much paper waste again in your office.
