[GreenYes] RE: [heur] [GreenYes] Proximity of beverage containers' receptacles to trashcans.


Yes, a recycling truism....you must make disposal and recycling equally convenient, so the user can make a choice at the same point.

Subject: [heur] [GreenYes] Proximity of beverage containers' receptacles to trashcans.
Importance: Low

I have observed in special events that the percentage of beverage containers in the trash is directly related to the distance from the trash receptacle to the receptacle for beverage containers.

Said another way, unless the containers receptacle is right next to the trash can, it is increasingly less likely that the discarded beverage containers will end up in the containers receptacle as the distance between the two receptacles increases. Said yet another way, assigning a place for beverage container receptacles randomly is foolish and they must be paired with the trash containers and kept that way.

comments please.
