Here’s 6 tips for implementing an effective gas station recycling program:

  • Use high-impact images that help customers make the right choice when they go to toss their waste
  • Select a container that has the capacity you need. A waste audit can help you determine how much waste you typically collect in a day.
  • Select containers with rigid liners to prevent liquid spills on the forecourt.
  • Locate the containers in high traffic areas so that they are easily accessible.
  • Use color-coding for different streams e.g. blue for recycling, black for landfill, green for organics.
  • Choose recycling bins made from weather and rust-proof material to protect your investment.

CleanRiver manufactures a range of customizable, weather-proof recycling containers that will keep your facility litter free, and divert waste from landfill.
