It is challenging to choose the right recycling receptacle for a successful recycling program. This guide will help you navigate through the process of choosing and customizing the best recycling solution. We are here to provide assistance in creating the most economical and efficient solution that will benefit any corporate and community waste strategy.

First of all, location and available space determine most features of the receptacle. It is critical to understand how the receptacles will be utilized in the public and how weather would affect its functionality. Size and capacity depend on the traffic, population and the frequency of collection schedule. Please check with your city and contractor for available options. Number of waste streams also depends on the available services your City and contractor provide and, most importantly, the waste your business produces. It is definitely more economical to purchase a receptacle with multiple streams than an individual waste receptacle.

According to City of Toronto Accessibility Design Guidelines, freestanding objects should be located to one side of pedestrian routes without limiting the width of the normal route or causing a hazard to persons with visual limitations. It is recommended a minimum of 1100 mm wide of accessible public indoor space to accommodate users of mobility aids.  As for outdoor clearance, a minimum of 1525 mm wide is needed for two-way pedestrian traffic and a minimum of 915 mm is required for temporary establishments. Therefore, it critical to understand the space available before selecting the design and size of receptacles.
