Why Are Trash and Recycle Bins Important?
Having a trash bin or indoor recycling bin comes in handy when tidying up any space. Whether at home or in the office, keep one in bathrooms, kitchens, offices, classrooms, and even bedrooms. Trash bins are usually lined with a secured plastic bag that will hold any waste thrown inside the bin. No one wants to live or work in a filthy environment, which is why trash bins under desks or one tucked away in a closet are the perfect solution to eliminating waste.
There are a variety of models with different storage capacities and they are available in different sizes, shapes, colors, and materials to accommodate different styles. For those interested in helping out the environment, a recycling bin is a perfect way to do that. Quill offers a variety of recycling bins for indoor and outdoor use for you to dispose of any recyclable items such as paper, plastic, and cardboard.
Types of Trash and Recycle Bins
There are primarily two options when choosing trash and recycle bins: plastic and stainless steel.
Plastic is the most commonly used material for a trash can or recycling bin. Size ranges from small indoor trash cans or small indoor recycling bins to larger ones that have a greater capacity limit for offices and other business environments or high-traffic spaces. Plastic bins come in styles that hold anywhere from about three to 13 gallons. The larger models can hold up to 32 gallons.
Plastic trash cans come with and without lids. They are available in a variety of colors and come in round or square shapes to match individual preferences. Some models come with a step press, offering a hands-free convenience. Recycle bins come with the universal recycling logo, to signal that all recycled materials can be thrown away there.
Stainless steel trash cans offer a sleek and more modern look. These models are available in a range of sizes that can hold anywhere from around two to 13 gallons. A stainless steel trash bin is durable and easy to wipe down with disinfecting wipes. Some designs also offer a touchless feature. This is made possible by either a step or a sensor-activated lid. This technology can make these trash cans more desirable for at-home or workspace use. However, you may need to purchase batteries separately to power your trash bin.
