Benefits of Modular “Create Your Own” Recycling Stations

Glaro, a leading USA manufacturer of waste receptacles, recently introduced a new format to present its recycling receptacles: Glaro RecyclePro modular recycling stations.

The only system of its kind, Glaro all metal modular recycling stations, are the largest and most versatile line of metal recycling containers on the market offering an extensive selection of sizes, finishes, openings, and messages.  Part of the RecyclePro recycling series, which promote environmental sustainability to your audience, Glaro modular recycling receptacles allow you to create your own recycling station with two or more receptacles, which are held together with a simple connector.

Designing your own station is straight forward. You pick the diameter you would like (either 12”, 15” or 20”), the type of top opening you would like (e.g. slot for paper, small hole, large hole for waste, or multipurpose opening), the message for each opening  diameter (e.g. paper, bottles, bottles and cans, waste, and recyclables), and the finish color you would like for each top and body. The cost is the same for any type of opening selected. At no additional cost, a standard Glaro silk screened message for the front of each recycling receptacle unit is included. All connector brackets are included.

For those who want to create more visibility for the recycling receptacle stations, connected units with a 72 inch sign post (seen in photo on the right) are also a great option to consider. These easily identifiable silk screened sign posts draw attention and are very useful in public areas.  Download the RecyclePro Series of modular recycling receptacles brochure here.
