Commercial businesses have diverse and large waste needs. This is why having a competent rubbish management provider is key. A proper waste management system ensures health compliance, keeps your property looking professional and eases your management responsibilities. For you to meet all the rubbish removal needs in your premises, various waste containers are needed. In this article, find out what these containers are, their uses, their placement and more.
Small trash bins
Commercial premises don't just need large collection bins. They need small trash bins as well. These bins are for trash collection around the main working areas such as offices or shops. The standard size is about 10-15 litres. These bins are used to collect food waste, paper, cardboard and any other miscellaneous waste from these spaces. Several times a week, or daily, these are emptied and the contents removed to a larger collection container.
Standard wheelie bins
Standard wheelie bins are a must-have in a commercial space. These are mostly used indoors but around common areas. That is, they can be used by anyone within the premises. For example, they can be placed outside shops, in canteens, around the parking lot, etc. They are used to collect the same waste as mentioned above (or small trash bins). But because they are used in common spaces, they are larger and usually measure about 20-30 litres. These bins can also be categorised for different wastes such as paper, plastic, glass, etc. How many categories you get will depend on your rubbish management needs.
And of course, a commercial property must have sanitary bins. These are placed in bathrooms and toilets without exception. The size of the containers here will depend on the expected human traffic. On average, bins measuring about 15-25 litres are used. The sanitary waste collected here is removed directly out of the premises for safe disposal at a separate facility.
A commercial property also needs skip bins. These are large, heavy duty steel bins measuring anywhere from 2m3 to 25m3 plus. They are placed outdoors and serve as the main removal units. Waste from all other containers (except sanitary bins) ends up here before removal out of the property. Your rubbish management provider will recommend the appropriate sizes, collection intervals and placement points depending on the needs of the property.
If you need help managing waste removal in your property, a rubbish management service company can help tailor the right waste containers for you, among other things, e.g. delivery and pickup, advice, management, etc.
