3 reasons to invest in outdoor litter bins
Outdoor litter bins help keep the local environment clean, tidy and rubbish free. Many councils are installing numerous bins across their jurisdictions, realising the strong link between the number of bins and the reduction in the amount of litter left on the ground. Dun Laoghaire and Fingal County Council are just two councils that have installed our bins and in doing so are helping to reduce the amount of waste strewn on the ground in their public spaces.
Waste prevention in the office
Recycling has a number of environmental benefits, including reducing the amount of waste going into landfill, reducing pollution and conserving natural resources. It can also help businesses save money and improve their corporate social responsibility.
However, despite these benefits, there is still over 100,000 tonnes of contaminated recyclable material that goes into landfill each year in Ireland, according to the not-for-profit organisation Repak.
