Introducing Our New Colour Coded Recycling Bin

Colour Coded Recycling Bin

Surveys on recycling have often shown that many as 80% of people in the UK find recycling confusing. They want to recycle more and recycle better. However, confusion about which bin to use and what they can put in them hampers their efforts. That’s why bins like our colour-coded recycling bin are just what you need for your school or workplace.

Confusion and Contamination

It’s not just confusion that’s getting in the way of better recycling rates. Contamination is a big problem too. According to Defra, UK councils sent 500,000 tonnes of recycling to landfill in 2018 because of contamination. That’s a huge amount of recyclable material that was lost forever.

How does contamination happen? It’s mostly down to people putting the wrong things in their bins. Hands up who’s done that from time to time, or gulp, every time you put the recycling out?

The trouble is, it’s costing us and the planet because perfectly recyclable waste is ending up in landfill. So what’s the answer?

Improve Recycling in Your School or Workplace

Okay, you might have nailed recycling at home (kind of). However what about in your school or workplace? Schools and businesses produce a lot of waste. That's why they have the potential to have a huge impact on improving recycling rates. One way you can do this is to provide recycling stations on your premises. These stations should consist of bins for recycling different waste streams. Just like our colour-coded recycling bin.
