When buying outdoor garbage bins for your business, you need to consider many important questions. Not only do you want to ensure that the bin is aesthetically pleasing and fits in with your business' environment, but it must also be able to handle the amount of waste your customers or employees generate. Here are some factors to consider when making your decision.
Outdoor trash cans must be placed in a sensible location for convenience and safety. Wherever you place the bin, make sure it's easy for people to access without obstructing walkways or being too close to buildings. If you're unsure about the best location for your outdoor garbage bin, our team can help you find the perfect spot.
When selecting an outdoor trash can, consider who will use it. Are there small children in the area? Are you likely to see sizeable crowds? Will you use the bin for wet materials, such as food waste, or dry materials, such as paper? Depending on the answers, you may need to pick a size and material sturdy enough to stand up to whatever comes its way.
Think about who will empty and maintain the bin. Is it a part-time job, or do you need a full-time employee? A trash can that requires frequent emptying or maintenance could cost more in the long run. Look for a bin that's easy to empty and maintain, so you can keep it cost-effective.
Vandals or severe weather can easily damage outdoor trash cans, so consider how to protect your bin from damage. Look for materials resistant to vandalism and weather, such as recycled plastic or stainless steel. Consider adding locking lids or other security features to prevent unauthorized access.
Many styles of outdoor garbage bins are available on the market, so you'll be able to find the perfect one for your business. Choose from sleek, stainless steel bins or colorful, recycled plastic models — something is available for every taste and budget.
