How Do I Start A Recycling Program?

Creating recycling programs that work is our purpose. We understand that getting overall recycling rates up and motivating people to participate in a new program can be tricky; but we’re here to help.

CleanRiver has moved beyond the familar ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ towards a more environmentally sustainable approach called the 3C’s of recycling: Culture, Communication and Collection. Our innovative, flexible and customizable recycling products are constantly evolving with the industry to meet any environmental and legislative changes.

How Can Customizable Recycling Bins Save Me Money?

It would be great if we were all in a position to make business decisions based solely on the desire to create a greater good for our communities and planet. However, we all know that business decisions need to make financial sense.

Recycling bins are more than just a means to divert waste from landfills, they are also an asset that can help drive funding for your sustainability initiatives. In some cases, it can take less than 2 years for your recycling program to realize payback on your initial investment. Now that’s ROI!

Launch A Pain-Free Recycling Program With Our Most Affordable Bin. Starting At $234.95

1. Custodial Savings

Our patented bowtie system is faster and easier to use, increasing efficiency and saving your staff time.

2. Contamination Savings

An effective recycling program will result in less contamination which will often save you money on waste hauling costs. We also offer custom labels which have been shown to improve contamination rates by up to 52%.

3. System Savings

Customizable bins offer the ability to change the garbage/recycling streams to meet your demands. This means that you don’t need to replace your recycling bins every time your recycling mandate changes.

4. Labour Savings

All Future-Ready bins can be customized to meet the optimal setup for every business, making management more efficient and saving you money.

5. Efficiency/Scale Savings

As your recycling needs grow the individual streams can be customized to meet new demands. This can help reduce the number of bins needed to reach your recycling mandate. 

1. If The State Or Province You Live In Updates Recycling Mandates.

In this case, you may be required to update your recycling program in order to hit a new mandated recycling goal that they have set (E.g by 2020). In order to do so, new recycling streams would potentially need to be added in order to decrease contamination rates.

2. When Common Recycled Products Change.

You may need a larger stream to support growth of a new product that needs to be recycled. For instance, if your workplace introduces a new coffee shop on the premises, the number of coffee cups needing to be disposed of will increase. In this case, you would most likely need to implement an additional stream to accommodate for this type of recycled material.

3. When Contamination Rates Get Out Of Hand.

If your facility is experiencing high contamination rates, a revamp of the current recycling program is probably needed. One way to achieve lower recycling contamination is to include graphics indicating what materials are acceptable in each stream along with the stream title. Studies show waste bins with these types of graphics can reduce contamination rates by 50%. We can custom print these types of graphics to feature on your waste bins at any time!
