When was the last time you conducted a time in motion study to rid yourself of the redundant and wasteful motions of the everyday tasks?  For instance, the innocent indoor waste bin or under desk indoor recycling bins.

  • How many man-hours does it take? 
  • What does this one simple task cost?   
  • Can this cost be better invested elsewhere?

Bins have evolved and now offer solutions for you to better manage your waste.  A growing number of businesses are now opting for recycling stations for offices, communal breakout areas, staff restaurants or office kitchens.    Here are just some examples.
