Make it easy to sort waste!

Waste sorting is an effective measure that is easy to both introduce and further develop. With clear labeling and different bins, it will be easy for employees to do the right thing. Read on for some great tips on how you can improve waste sorting at your workplace.

Save both energy and natural resources 

Everyone benefits from waste sorting. Not only can batteries and other hazardous waste be disposed of in a safe way, waste sorting contributes greatly to environmental benefits at the manufacturing stage. For example, it's both more energy and resource efficient to create new paper from recycled material, rather than burning or dumping old paper and creating new raw materials to manufacutre more paper.

Start by sorting out the most hazardous

So how do you get started? A good tip is to start with what causes the most damage: the environmentally and health hazardous waste. Some products contain substances that are toxic, explosive or flammable, and consequently harmful to humans and the environment. Used batteries, low energy bulbs, fluorescent bulbs, computers and other electrical items are examples of waste that should be separated and left at the recycling center locally. Place the hazardous waste in suitable containers while waiting for disposal / collection. 


Make it easy at the workplace 

The more we recycle, the better for the environment. So make it easier for your employees by placing recycling bins at a convenient distance from their workplaces. In office environments, it is a good idea to have a bin for paper under each desk and in the printer room. In the workshop and in the warehouse, environmental stations should be strategically placed close to areas where waste materials are generated. And when it comes to the number of containers, the rule is: the more the merrier – the probability of each item ending up in the right place is higher!


Make it clear in the lunch room 

Waste sorting has a certain place in the lunch room. Separating packaging of plastic, glass and metal from other waste is of great benefit – just like composting any food waste. Use clear labels or containers with different colours, to facilitate the sorting. By using a waste sorting cabinet with several containers in one, recycling will be just as clear and easy as throwing it all into the same bin.

Put the residual waste in a classic rubbish bin 

Any extra waste that needs to be dumped and cannot be recycled can be placed in a classic refuse container that is easy to both empty and clean. These bins are available in several different sizes, made of durable and UV-resistant HDPE and have large wheels that make them very easy to move. 

Use dump containers for the bulky waste 

When it comes to waste sorting in a larger scale – of heavier materials or for collection of waste sorted at the workplace – tipping skips are an excellent choice. These robust containers are available in different sizes, from 150 to 3,000 liters, all designed for heavy-duty handling and use with forklift trucks. They are also available in several different colors to facilitate sorting. Add lids, castors, labels and other functional accessories that make it easy, even with the heaviest and roughest waste.
