When using source separation systems at pre/schools, consistency is key. By having the one colour buckets/bins, for each system throughout the whole site, students, staff and visitors are able to clearly identify the necessary bin from a distance away. Signs are also important on or above bins/buckets, as they explain the variety of items that can go into that stream. They are also a good visual reminder for people who are new to the school, speak English as a second or other language, and people that are more visual than linguistic.
Below are examples of 10c collection systems that work well at various pre/school sites. Send us photos of the 10c collection at your school, through the contact us page.
