Cup Bins

Cup bins are a visually appropriate way to encourage recycling. It is easy to promote environmentally careful habits when there is the minimum of fuss involved. Cup bins make plastic cup recycling straightforward. Water dispenser areas can become untidy and create a bad impression, especially in a high-volume area, but even in small offices or waiting rooms, used cups tend to build up fast and may begin to clutter the area. The answer is to avoid messy, overfilled bins and mixed waste by positioning cup bins at strategic points ensuring the maximum recycling of used plastic.

Drink Container Disposal: Buying Guide

In a dedicated cup bin, the collection of plastic cups is neatly done in such a way that your refuse takes up around 75 per cent less space than it would when using a conventional bin.

In a high-traffic environment near water dispensers, a cup bin with a large capacity is recommended. In this instance, a cup bin such as the neat and unobtrusive multi-mouth collector would be best, as it can hold over a thousand cups, which means there is no need for repeated emptying - you will be spared the headache of an overflowing, unsightly receptacle. What is more, recycling will be streamlined and effortless. Inside, within the refuse sack, it has inner tubes for each opening to guide the cups into place so that they are stored efficiently. To make it manageable, the design includes two carry handles.

Because of the inner stacking tubes, it is important not to mix other plastic waste into the cup bin, or to add cans and glass. If cans, glass bottles and plastic bottles are being discarded in a nearby area, dedicated receptacles should be in place, with clear signage to this effect. It should be noted that these cup bins are not intended for coffee cup collection since they are often made of composite materials, which are tricky to recycle.

Recycle bins should be supplied with colour-coded lids and graphics to avoid confusion. An example of a recycling bin that you could line up for this purpose is the standard envirobin, which has coloured lid options for paper, cans, plastic bottles and plastic cups. The cup version features a reservoir in the centre to collect liquids. There are colour-coded options for plastic (in this case, bottles), and for cans, etc. If these options are within reach, you will be able to prevent frustration and non-compliance with regards to your cup bin.

If your requirements do not involve hundreds of disposals, the neat cup tray bin will be a suitable addition to your workspace. It features a three-hole receiver for the insertion of used cups. While the cup-shaped holes in the tray make the intended use rather obvious, it is possible to design your own label in a colour of your choice and with your text – for instance “Water Cups Only.” Place one in an optimal position so that people can conveniently dispose of plastic cups responsibly. The beauty of cup bins is that soiled cups are stacked tidily inside so that the minimum of space is used to store and move them, which will help reduce what otherwise tends to be a large volume of waste.
