Hideaway Liner Holders are now available in four colours to identify the correct waste for each bin. With most councils now collecting three or four different types of waste, there is greater demand for easier ways to seperate waste within the home or office. Colour coding waste bins is simple and yet has many downstream benefits.
1. Reduces confusion
Recycling can be confusing, especially if you are unsure which bin to put your rubbish or recycling into. Colour-coded bins offer a visual cue that simplifies the process of waste separation. By assigning different colours to each type of waste or recycling, such as paper, glass, and food, you can easily identify the right bin for each item.
2. Increases Participation and Awareness
Whether in the home or the office environment, colour-coded bins serve as educational tools that promote awareness about the importance of recycling and waste reduction. The visible differentiation of bins helps everyone, even children, understand the significance of separating recycling and the importance of waste reduction. This increased awareness leads to improved participation and commitment to sustainable practices.
3. Reduced Contamination = More Recycled
One of the most significant advantages of colour-coded bins is the reduction of contamination in recyclable materials. When materials are placed in the wrong bin, like food going into a paper recycling bin, then the material becomes contaminated. This adds more work downstream in sorting or may mean that those materials cannot be recycled at all. Colour coded bins help by separating waste at the source and reducing contamination. This in turn leads to improved recycling rates and a more efficient use of resources.
Hideaway Coloured Liner Holders are now available to suit 13L, 15L, 16L, 20L and 35L Hideaway Buckets.
