We hear all the time that people would recycle more if it was made easier for them. Some say recycling containers don’t have enough signage; others say they don’t know what is recyclable anymore.

It’s understandable how they can be frustrated; in many cases it is true, there simply isn’t enough proper signage or explanation of recyclables. With so many variations of what is accepted and what isn’t, it can be hard to know for sure. Plus recycling programs are always changing over time, causing recycling bins to be replaced that don’t need to be! This causes added confusion for the public as they have to keep re-learning what goes in what recycle bin. Here at Busch we like things simple, so we developed a solution to this unnecessary problem; the Waste Watcher Series.

Signs for Recycling BinsThe Waste Watcher Series has interchangeable lids (for paper, plastic etc.) that can be replaced for the recycling program of your choice. Furthermore, the signage fits a standard 8½ x 11 sheet of paper so you can print off a personalized sign easily! Just last week a client was raving about the signage of their Waste Watcher and how it has really increased the recycling in their workplace. Who knew that something as simple as signage can really make a difference in your recycling program? Great to be a part of a company that creates solutions not problems!
