Common Questions About Recycling Bins
What size recycling bins or containers are available?
A recycling container's capacity is measured by how many gallons it can hold. With capacities ranging from 2.35 gallons to 103.2 gallons, business owners will be able to find a size that suits their needs.
What item-specific options are available?
Some recycling containers are designated for use with specific materials, and will have the name of that material clearly printed on the exterior to help customers know whether glass, plastic, paper, or cans belong in that specific bin. General recycling containers that will accept any recyclable material are also available, as well as bins with multiple compartments that enable users to conveniently and properly dispose of different types of recyclables in one area. These recycling bins have two to four sections which are labeled to show the user where certain items are supposed to go. These bins come in a variety of different colors to ensure you can find a look that fits your business's needs.
What is the difference between indoor and outdoor recycling bins?
Typically, indoor bins are made of plastic, while outdoor bins have some type of steal coating or fencing around them. This helps protect outdoor bins and containers from wind, rain, frost, and harsh sunlight.
Why are some models fire resistant?
Some indoor recycling containers may be fire resistant, which means that they will not catch fire easily. This safety feature can grant business owners some degree of peace since a fire would likely be confined to the inside of the container if something inside the bin ignited. These products come in many different sizes and colors, and also have words on them defining what material they are for.
Do any options come with wheels for transportation?
Wheeled recycling containers are available for high-volume operations and businesses that need to transport their recycling through the building or across the parking lot. Wheels are typically found on containers that hold weight in excess of 50 pounds. These models are available for both indoor and outdoor use.
