All of our recycling bins and waste solutions are available with a variety of styles and options to tailor your products for your specific needs. Old Dominion University came to us looking for several recycling bins for their recycling program on campus.
Their needs were specific, they wanted to further their mission of tastefully promoting their sustainability efforts and at the same time increase the student participation in the recycling program and maximize awareness.
Old Dominion started their tailoring process by selecting the Verde collection for it's beautiful arch styling, not to mention that it is made entirely of 97% pure recycled plastic (milk jugs).
They then selected the double 38 gallon recycling bin since they required the extra capacity to modify their three stream system into a two stream with commingle recycling.
Next, they elected to incorporate our vail top roof option since the recycling bins would be outdoors. The vail top roof prevents waste materials, rain, snow and other debris from collecting on top.
Old Dominion then decided to color coordinate the recycling bins with their school branding standards and selected gray trim with navy panels.
To minimize cross contamination of waste products with recycled items, Old Dominion elected to add a commingle restrictive opening to the right side of their recycling bins.
Old Dominion wanted students and faculty to easily identify the difference between the waste and recycling streams and added engraved symbols to the front of their recycling bins.
Old Dominion completed their tailoring process by tastefully promoting their brand with an engraved logo on the side of their recycling bins.
Tailored recycling stations from max·R help enhance our school pride. The Old Dominion University logo looks tasteful and helps further our mission to promote sustainability. Making recycling look better makes recycling efforts work better; max·R is our 'go-to' for making that happen.
