Garbage Cans for the Office

Choose the Right Trash Can for Your Office Space

Offices have spaces with various functions – desks for working, conference rooms for meeting, and lunchrooms for eating. Just like every space is designed for its intended function, there are a variety of different kinds of trash receptacles for all areas of your office. Your trash says a lot about your office – make sure your indoor and outdoor garbage cans are creating the right message.

Benefits of Proper Disposal

Ensuring employees and customers have the right options for trash and recycling disposal can help your business in many ways:

  • recycling bins promote green corporate culture
  • tidy desks free of trash increase productivity
  • neat floors and surfaces show attention to detail
  • good hygiene improves the health and safety of employees and customers
  • covered trash cans reduce unwanted food smells

Finding the Right Trash Can

Your office should have the right trash can for every area of the building. Outdoor trash cans allow people to dispose of unwanted items before entering your building, which reduces the amount of litter both outside and inside your building. Depending on your company’s needs, outdoor trash options could include garbage cans, smokers receptacles, or recycling bins.

When choosing indoor trash cans, smaller decorative options can add to the overall design of your office, which serving as a place to get rid of trash. Small under desk trash cans can help your employees keep their space clean and orderly, without having to interrupt their work with a walk to a far away garbage can. Keep in mind that smaller trash cans should be emptied more often to reduce overflows.

Trash cans for office kitchens, lunchrooms, or break rooms should have a lid to avoid unwanted food smells from traveling through the office. Lids will also cover any unsightly food wastes that could attract insects and give your office a messy or unkempt appearance.

Surprisingly, more trash cans doesn’t always mean less litter, so be sure to find the right balance to meet the needs of your office. A few strategically placed garbage receptacles will reduce litter more than several haphazardly placed options.

Types of Garbage Cans

Trash receptacles come in all shapes and sizes and can be made from:

  • metal
  • steel
  • stainless steel
  • plastic
  • natural materials

Choosing the right material will ensure your office trash can is durable enough for its location and type of trash, and can also make a difference when it comes to cleaning or other maintenance.
