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.
