The DC Office Needs A Better Recycling System

This is a petition I'd like WH attorneys to sign to promote more active recycling efforts in the DC office. It is motivated by the following questions: *** The current system for kitchen recycling is four labeled bins that all contain mixed trash that cannot be separated in any useful way. Is there a better way to encourage recycling in the floor kitchens *** Tree-slaughtering is a cost of doing business as an attorney. But what exactly happens when you try to make amends by dumping stacks of cases in your office recycling bin Is that paper recycled If so, is it mixed with other recyclable products that may contain food and drink waste that makes the paper impossible to recycle Is it sorted later *** Can we return to vending machines that sell canned rather than bottled soda *** Why aren't there recycling bins in the conference rooms, where vast quantities of paper and bottled soda are consumed *** Why do we even *have* plastic cups in the kitchen Doesn't paper do the same thing *** Can some of these problems be solved most efficiently by just adding some signs in a few places It would be great to have a statistic that shows strong attorney support for a more robust and visible recycling initiative here at WilmerHale. Please sign below (I don't care how much info as long as you use some indicator of your identity like a last name or even a TKNO). You will be asked to answer two survey questions. Just two. Thanks much to you all.
