Nobody likes to see waste lying around on the ground, but when people don’t have a clear place to put their garbage and recycling, that is often what happens. When candy wrappers and tissues are left scattered around a picnic or playground area, the whole space looks messy. Having an appropriate place to dispose of waste close by encourages kids to be green at school, so you are not left with a messy space and you don’t have to give an additional task to your busy maintenance or cleaning staff.
Why do I need garbage cans and recycling bins outside?
When you provide garbage cans and recycling bins, you demonstrate the value of being clean and eco-friendly while maintaining the aesthetic appearance of your building and its surroundings. Most people are happy to throw away their own garbage, but they won’t want to carry it around, searching for an appropriate place to dispose of it, especially if they are cleaning up messy items. With the appropriate commercial trash cans within easy reach, your outdoor areas are more likely to stay clean for longer periods of time.
What is the best place for trash cans and recycle bins outside?
The optimal locations for trash cans and recycle bins are near the spaces where people are most likely to be eating. It is important to place them in a space that is close enough to be reached easily, and prominent enough to be noticed, but far enough away from where people are eating that unpleasant smells won’t bother them. The ideal placement will probably be a few feet away from areas where people are sitting, out of the way of any play equipment or footpaths.
To encourage an eco-friendly approach to waste disposal, it is a great idea to put recycling bins right next to trash cans. This way, people won’t have to go out of their way to dispose of materials in an environmentally-friendly fashion. Even those who don’t naturally seek out opportunities to recycle will be likely to put materials in recycle cans when it is a natural and easy thing to do. In the educational environment, the presence of proper waste disposal will demonstrate your institution’s concern for the environment, and will help develop kids with a cause.
How do you choose outdoor recycling cans?
When ordering outdoor recycling cans, you have to choose which materials they will be for. The right selection ultimately depends on what people are most likely to be disposing of in a particular location and what materials the local area has the capability to reuse. You can choose to have separate compartments for cans and bottles, plastic and glass, and even a bin that is designated just for paper. With a number of recycling bins in a row, it will be easier for people to separate materials and identify the right place for each thing. This arrangement is also helpful for a school that collects bottles and cans as a fundraiser for student activities or another worthy cause.
Our outdoor waste receptacles come in a selection of base finish colors so you can choose the hues that suit your space. Some will prefer vibrant colors that match playground equipment and stand out prominently so they are easy to find. For a more subdued professional setting such as an office building, a more subtle shade that blends in with natural surroundings is preferable.
What kinds of waste receptacles do you have?
