Colour coding your waste system makes sense for your family and the planet

Take your home or office waste bin to the next level with Hideaway Colour Coded Liner Holders – speed of use, recycling education and recycling efficiency are the result

Upgrading your waste and recycling system to Hideaway colour coded liner holders can have a bigger impact than you think. 

Read on to see the benefits of colour coding your waste bin and see how to choose the correct liner holders to suit your Hideaway Bin.

Goodbye confusion, hello simplicity 

Recycling can be confusing, especially if you are unsure which bin to put your rubbish or recycling into. 

Colour-coded bins offer a visual cue that simplifies the process of waste separation. 

By assigning different colours to each type of waste or recycling, such as paper, glass, and food, you can easily identify the right bin for each item.

Increases participation and awareness

Whether in the home or the office environment, colour-coded recycling bins serve as educational tools that promote awareness about the importance of recycling and waste reduction. 

The visible differentiation of bins helps everyone, even children, understand the significance of separating waste and the positive impact it can have on the environment. 

This increased awareness leads to improved participation and commitment to sustainable practices.

Reduced contamination and improved recycling rates

One of the most significant advantages of colour-coded bins is the reduction of contamination in recyclable materials. 

When materials are placed in the wrong bin, like food going into a paper recycling bin, then the material becomes contaminated. 

This adds more work downstream in sorting or may mean that those materials cannot be recycled at all. 

Colour coded bins help by separating waste at the source and reducing contamination. 

This in turn leads to improved recycling rates and a more efficient use of resources.

These are available in four new colours – Red, Green, Yellow and Blue – and suit all Concelo bins and most of the Hideaway Compact range.

With the Hideaway Colour Coded Liner Holders, you can pick and choose which ones match your local requirements best.
