Centralized Waste & Recycling Stations for your Business

Establish a centralized recycling program in your office building to increase recycling rates and reduce waste hauling costs. With centralized collection points for sorting waste and recyclables, you create more awareness for recycling which results in less contamination and thus cleaner recycling streams.

Employees generate on average 2.2 lbs garbage every day.

Businesses can create waste and recycling collection points with multiple commercial office trash cans, such as these transparent recycling stations.


How is your current waste reduction program performing?

Do you have lots of contamination in your recyclable waste streams? Do you want to eliminate and prevent landfill waste at the office as much as possible? Then you might need to implement or improve your recycling program which helps to reduce waste and recycle more. Businesses have great opportunities to increase their recycling rates. One easy implementation is the placement of centralized recycling stations.

Engage and educate your employees. Recycling is teamwork.

Reducing waste offers great environmental benefits and cost savings. A recycling program helps to increase recycling rates so you keep recyclable materials out of landfills or incinerators.


Benefits of centralized waste collection

Ecological benefits:

  • Higher waste diversion rates.
  • Less contaminated recycling streams.
  • Achieve higher recycling goals.
  • Conserve natural resources.
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Economical benefits:

  • Reduce waste disposal and hauling costs.
  • Improve your corporate image.

Recycle together with your team

Achieving higher recycling rates at your office can only be achieved when everyone follows the same waste reduction program. It isn’t a task of your facility manager alone. This means that every employee in your organization needs to understand that they are responsible for their own waste and they are aware of what is waste and what is recyclable. Therefore it is important to create awareness for source separation by communicating a clear recycling program. The program contains understandable guidelines and instructions for sorting waste and recyclables at the workspace.

Know what you throw away today. Think about how you can reduce, reuse and recycle tomorrow.

Kick-off your sustainable program with the whole team to create engagement. Instruct your employees thoroughly and make sure the office floor contains several recycling stations in centralized areas. Also, make it visually clear which type of waste stream belongs to each office trash can or recycle bin. Recycling labels for your bins can help a lot. For more information about standardized labels see Recycle Across America.

A well-excecuted recycling program reduces costs and enhance sustainability.

A well-excecuted recycling program with centralized collection points at your organization can result in less contamination and cleaner streams of recyclables, this can save your business $100.00 per employee per year.


Use labels to minimize confusion and contamination

It is important to label your recycling bins and trash cans with understandable text, signs, and images to minimize contamination of this issue. Read more about standardized recycling labels at Let’s Recycle Right.

Recycle Across America (RAA) offers standardized labels for your recycling tools. These labels make it very clear (visually and in the text) which waste stream belongs to which container so people can recycle properly. This minimizes confusion in the bin and ensures that waste materials end up in the correct waste stream. The labels are proven to increase recycling by 50-100%. The result is less trash and more recycling, so step up on the waste hierarchy.

Get waste in the appropriate bin instead of the most convenient bin.

Tips for buying wheeled trash cans

We recommend buying heavy-duty wheeled trash cans with the right size and capacity for commercial, industrial, and business use. A wheeled waste container can be used for trash and recycling. It is mostly used outdoors but can also be placed indoors. The bin contains two or more wheels and comes with a lid to close off the container properly. Popular 2-wheel trash and recycling cart brands on Amazon.com are Rubbermaid, Toter, and Suncast.

Right size and capacity

Most commercial trash cans with wheels come in various capacities and size options. We recommend getting a 96 gallon (360 liters) wheeled trash can. This is the largest size for a two-wheeled trash can. The capacity is large enough to hold six standard bags. The downside of a large wheeled recycling bin is that it is harder to handle when full and a larger footprint. So when there is not much floor space in your office, you can also opt for a medium-sized trash can with a capacity of around 64 gallons. This container size is large enough to hold around four standard bags. We don’t recommend a small 32-gallon recycling cart for commercial use due to the low capacity.

The durability of the wheel cart

The construction of a wheeled trash can or recycling bin needs to be rugged, durable, and made of strong commercial-grade materials. That is if you want your container to last for a long time.

Get a wheeled trash can:

  • with a strong and ergonomic handle.
  • that can handle heavy loads and still move smoothly and easily.
  • that is easy to tilt and roll.
  • with a strong hinge and lid construction, because this part can break easily when made of flimsy plastic.
  • that is light enough for easy maneuverability but is stable enough for strong winds.
  • that withstand all kinds of weather conditions like strong winds, rain, snow, and the radiation of the sun.
  • that survives the grab and flip in the trash trucks on pickup day.
  • with strong wheels that can roll on most surfaces.
