1. CHOOSE STANDARDIZED LABELS TO MEET YOUR SORTING NEEDS

 
Before ordering your bins, it is imperative that you check with your recycling hauler and local materials recovery facility to ensure what can and cannot be accepted in your recycling bins. The standardized labels depict the most common items visitors and guests will need to dispose of. Keeping the labels clean and simple reduces confusion at the bin and keeps your recycling stream as clean as possible.

2. CHOOSE THE CLEANRIVER BINS FOR YOUR LOCATION

When determining the best bin for your program keep in mind location, items sold nearby, capacity and visitor and employee flow. Make note of the name of the bins you'd like to purchase ​and
what sorting needs your program has when looking through your bin options using the slide below.

Why join the standardized label solution?

Confusing labels on recycling bins is causing the recycling industry to collapse. Read more.

Problem: Confusion at the recycling bin equals garbage.
Solution: Society-wide
standardized labels for recycling bins.

Standardized labels on recycling bins are the #1 solution for the environment today because they make it easier for people to begin to recycle right.  Recycling is the most important action society can do to simultaneously help the environment, the economy, manfuacturing and to prevent waste from going into oceans -- but recycling doesn't work if society is confused at the bin.  The standardized labels are proven to help increase recycling levels 50-100% and significantly decrease the costly garbage thrown in recycling bins.  

It's that simple.
