Recycling Solutions for Commercial & Residential Purposes

     There is a large choice of environmentally friendly recycling services available these days designed to prevent waste from being tipped into already overflowing landfills. As a resident or business owner you can benefit not only yourself by recycling, but also the environment.

Contact a facilities management service company for advice on the best and most economical methods of recycling at home or in the workplace; they can also introduce you to recycled products manufactured from environmentally friendly renewable sources.

Amongst the many types of recyclable services available are paper and cardboard recycling, plastic and glass bottles, and steel and aluminium can recycling. Bin solutions are available for commercial, industrial, and domestic use and can be hired for dry and solid household waste including food, garden and green waste, e-waste, batteries, and chemicals and paints.

Mobile garbage bins, also known as Wheelie bins, are generally used for domestic purposes and have the ability to hold up to between 120 and 240 litres. They are particularly good for recycling in homes with limited storage facilities. Many homes now recycle plastic, metal, glass, and paper. Generally, bins are small in size and made from plastic and can conveniently be kept in an outhouse or even indoors. Alternatively larger upright bins, similar to wheelie bins, can be stored outside.

You will see commercial recycle bins parked in various locations; the supermarket or local council are common places. They are much larger in size than residential bins and colour-coded to identify which materials are to be recycled. Industrial recycling bins are larger again and are designed to hold a lot more and are made for factories and other large businesses that have a lot of products to be recycled or disposed of. Check out waste management Melbourne for further information.

Heavy waste materials can be dealt with by hiring skip bins from your local council or waste management facility, - measuring from 2m3 to 6m3, they are suitable for limited access locations and small volumes of bulk waste. Bulk bins are larger in size and handy if you are undertaking a house renovation or land clearance project. Measuring from 6m3 to 15m3 they are generally used for sites where waste needs to be transported to bins via chutes.

Paper and cardboard recycling is an efficient way to get rid of all the scrap paper and packaging left over from your business or school projects. If you find you are left with paper that isn't big enough to be re-used or small oddly shaped pieces, a waste management supplier can provide paper recycling bins that can be collected on a regular basis, or just give them a call when the bins are full. They take anything from regular white or coloured paper, newspaper and magazines, to books, packing paper and envelopes.

If you have documents containing your personal information it's advised not to throw these directly into your regular refuse bins, as people have been known to have their bins searched for bank statements and other letters containing personal details. Identity theft is not uncommon, so you want to be sure you dispose of anything like this safely. A waste facility can provide you with secure document destruction bins that have locks which they'll collect, destruct and recycle. This service is ideal for destroying and recycling bulk archives and other sensitive documents from your home, office, business or school. They are particularly useful for those companies that have financial and end of year documents, confidential papers, archives, or personal records of any kind to get rid of.

Not everything can be recycled and bins are colour coded to ensure you put the right items in the correct bins, this makes it easier for the people sorting through the items when it reaches them. Don't just throw anything into a bin - liquids, chemicals, paints and cleaning fluids are definite no-nos. If you do need to get rid of chemicals or paints for example then call your local council or local waste management service and they should be able to advice you on where to drop them off safely.

Always check the price of skip hire before you book, prices should include drop-off, pickup, and disposal.
