So you’ve finally decided that your plant is going to be more environmentally responsible. You’re no longer going to put concerns of waste off to the side of your mind. Instead, you’re going to be conscious about separating your recyclable items from the non-recyclables. Hey, we salute you! KenBay is committed to a zero waste initiative and helping others achieve the same goals. We believe that it is the responsibility of business owners and managers to handle their waste and recycling responsibly.
One of the first concerns raised when it comes to recycling is cost, especially the cost of transporting the recyclable items. This is understandable! You want to protect the environment and be socially conscious, but you also can’t allow it to be too big of a strain on your business. Fortunately, there is a solution! You can transport your recyclable items and still save money! Here’s how!
Compact Your Recyclable Items into a Convenient Cube!
One of the first and most important things you can do is make sure your recyclable items are the right shape. It may be cheaper to toss it all into a garbage bag but there are two problems. One: if you are throwing away all that garbage bag plastic anyway, is there a point to adding it to the recycling truck? Two: that is not the most cost effective use of your space. You’re leaving large gaps of air in the truck, air which you are now paying to transport!
A better solution is to use a trash compactor to press all that garbage into a convenient cube shape. The cube allows for trash that is more easily stackable. Basic geometry, really! And wouldn’t you know it, KenBay has our line of handy and transportable compactors all ready to go!
Square Bags are Great Too!
Speaking of shapes, the right kind of bag can make all the difference when it comes to transportation! When you have square cubes, it just makes sense to put them in a square bag. Again, it comes down to making everything more stackable and reducing the amount of air you are hauling. Personally, we recommend super sacks. They’re fairly durable, and you can also recycle them too!
