If you’re planning or designing a new commercial building, you need to consider the smaller internal needs for your building as well. For instance, do you know the best way to select waste receptacles for a building’s interior? Here are some of the biggest factors to consider when choosing trash cans for your building.
The Different Trash Can Styles
There is a wide range of trash can styles to choose from when selecting your commercial bin. Start by examining where you want to place your building’s trash can. If you’ll be putting it in a small space, a bin with a covered lid may be better for containing the smell of trash, especially for those busy days when you can’t empty it. Alternatively, a canopy-topped trash can or an open bin may be best for high-traffic areas so that visitors can toss their trash as they pass. There are many assorted styles of trash cans, and you can even customize their lids to offer ease of use.
Which Size Receptacle Fits Best
The next step is to choose which size garbage receptacle you need. A smaller trash bin would be better suited for smaller rooms that don’t offer as much free space. If your garbage receptacle will be in a high-traffic area, it’s best to purchase a larger-sized bin to avoid trash can overflow and needing to replace the bag frequently. Consider the size of the space you have to work with as well as the number of people who will use the trash receptacle.
Receptacle Maintenance Requirements
When choosing a trash can, it’s also important to consider its maintenance requirements and how well you will be able to accommodate them. For example, taking a garbage can that is usually designed for indoor use and using it outdoors will lead to more damage and repairs. Additionally, some garbage can materials are more durable than others and will hold up better to wear and tear. You may need to choose between stainless steel and plastic trash cans for your business. Stainless steel and stone garbage cans are some of the more durable options and require less maintenance.
Now that you know what to consider when choosing a trash can for your building, you can select a receptacle that will work best with the space you have available. Remember these factors as you make your waste management selections.
