Recycling can be simple and convenient if you pick the right tools and know the rules. Having a visual system that keeps all those items organized until it is time to dispose of them. Finding the right containers for your business, educational or family’s needs and determining the best location can make your recycling efforts both resourceful and easy.
Many recycling bins are designed to be easily recognizable, and are marked with slogans promoting recycling on a blue or green background along with the universal recycling symbol. Others are intentionally unobtrusive and designed to blend in within their surroundings. Bins are sometimes different colors so that user may differentiate between the types of materials to be placed in them. While there is no universal standard, the color blue or green is commonly used to indicate a bin is for recycling in public settings.
Busch Systems has been a world leader in the design and manufacturing of recycling, compost and waste containers since the company’s inception in 1985.
It’s easy to set up a recycling bin next to your garbage disposal for the paper, any circulars you get in the mail, old magazines, scrap paper, aluminum, plastics etc.
It is particularly important to recycle paper – because according to the EPA, paper makes up about one-third of all the MSW (municipal waste stream, i.e. garbage, not Master of Social Work) in North America. That’s a lot of paper! And recycling all that paper conserves resources, saves energy, and preserves valuable landfill space.
So keep it simple.
Many recycling bins have clear communication makes for a clean sort of recyclables and a great program!
Look for the symbol displayed on the bin for the recycling disposal you require (usually located within close proximity to each other)
Some recycling bins make it even simpler than that by mixing the different materials of recyclables within one disposal system!
The type of recycling containers used in homes, offices, and in public spaces really determines how beneficial a recycling program may be.
Using recycling bins with multiple compartments can be an excellent way to help pre-sort different materials and aid in collection and processing. All-in-one recycling containers come in many sizes to be used within a home, office, or placed in public areas.
