Starting a corporate recycling program gets easier and easier. There's a manual that's been around for several years that is still quite good on the subject, Business Recycling Manual by Inform, Inc (NY, NY)
There are technical assistance programs all over the place:
EPA's Jobs Through Recycling Program
EPA's Recycling Means Business Program
Almost every state has a recycling business assistance program
The US Conference of Mayors has its National Office Paper Recycling Project which you can join and receive scads of help recycling office paper and other materials.
The State recycling associations usually fall over themsemselves in helping businesses to start recycling programs.
And, for self-help, just plain reading the trade press can't be beat for a real-world sense that yo're not going to make a profit on most materials in today's recycling climate, but you aren't going to lose a lot of money on a recycling program either. Read, Waste Age , Recycling Times and Recycling Today and that should be sufficient.
