Recycling Bins & Why You Need Them

In the coming decades, recycling will become increasingly important as we produce more and more bags of trash destined to sit in landfills forever. Recycling can save massive amounts of plastic, glass, and paper from growing our already overflowing landfills. Recycling these materials also saves energy because a manufacturer doesn’t have to use raw materials to produce something new.  

Recycling With L-S Industries

Our sustainable recycling bins are available in two standard sizes, as well as in custom dimensions. Our recycling bins are the most cost-effective option for your business. They are lightweight and durable, with several lid options to best fit your needs. Their bright green color makes them easy to identify in an office, or any setting.

Why You Need Recycling Bins in Your Office

  • Top-of-mind effect: Having in-office recycling bins makes individuals far more likely to recycle. Very few people are willing to save the plastic water bottles and paper they use in the office until they get home to recycle them, but simply placing a bin or two around the office could make a significant difference. Seeing the bright green bin will be a constant reminder to employees about the importance of recycling.
  • Save money: Efficient recycling practices have the ability to save a company millions of dollars. In the latest Environmental Responsibility Report published by Apple, it reported an estimated $40 million made through recycling efforts.
  • Group effort: According to data gathered by Keep America Beautiful, if everyone in America recycled just one plastic bottle, those materials could make more than 54 million T-shirts or about 6.5 million fleece jackets. If everyone recycled just one aluminum can, 295 million new aluminum cans could be made. Recycling is a group effort and our custom recycling bins make it easy to participate.
