Recycling Trash Cans are trash cans specifically designed to separate recyclable materials from normal trash. They are a great way to keep the environment clean and free from litter because they promote the proper disposal of waste. What makes recycling trash cans different from regular trash cans is their ability to separate different types of trash and recyclable materials. There are many different styles of recycling trash cans, made out of many different materials, but their functionality is about the same in each. Recycling trash cans usually provide three different trash cans per unit: one for cans only, one for paper only and one for all other types of trash. This separation allows for many products, which would have otherwise ended up in landfills, to be properly recycled.
Putting recycling trash cans in your commercial location will show your guests and customers that you are doing your part to Go Green. It shows them that you care about the environment and that you are doing your best to promote recycling. And if your recycling trash can is also built out of recycled materials, it also shows that you are willing to go that extra mile to keep Mother Nature clean and protected

How to Choose Recycling Bins
Where should I place my commercial recycling bin?
Commercial trash cans should be placed in clear sight from any point on your location. If a customer or guest on your site doesn’t see a nearby trash can, it is a lot more likely that they will simply litter their trash, rather then go look for a receptacle. Commercial trash cans should be places in all heavily populated areas of your location, both indoors and outdoors, and should also be found in some lesser populated areas like parking lots, bathrooms and courtyards. A commercial location with an inadequate number of trash cans is actually promoting improper disposal methods.
What materials should I look for?
The type of material you choose for your commercial trash can should reflect your location. For areas where graffiti and vandalism are a problem, steel commercial trash cans are the ideal choice. They are exceptionally durable and they also resist graffiti. For wetter areas, like near pools, lakes or the ocean the best material choices are galvanized steel, recycled plastic and stone aggregate because the will not crack, chip, rust or warp even under the harshest conditions.
What is the right capacity for my location?
There is nothing worse than having an appropriately places commercial trash can that is simply too small for your location. Guest do their best to jam, shove, stuff or cram their trash into the receptacle, but in the end, it always seems to overflow. Then, an area that should have been totally clear of any litter becomes a hot spot for pollution and debris. Outdoor trash receptacles should have a capacity of at least 35-gallons, but are ideally found with at least 40-gallons of trash capacity. Indoor commercial trash receptacles can be a bit smaller than their outdoor counterparts, some as small as 15-gallons for light traffic areas, but for the most part a commercial indoor trash can should have at least a 21-gallon capacity.
What accessories are necessary for my location?
Just like material choices, the accessories you choose for your commercial trash can should reflect your surroundings. For places where animals and wildlife may come into contact with the trash can, custom lids (including bear proof lids) should be strongly considered. Trash can liners are also an important addition to most commercial trash cans because most commercial trash cans are far too large to emptied using conventional methods. Frames, mounts, locks and waste decals are also some accessories that can truly benefit your commercial location and your commercial trash can.
