Rubbermaid Commercial Products announces its “smarter recycling” solution: The Glutton recycling station. The recycling station combines the Glutton and Slim Jim strength and durability into a high-capacity station that can separate up to four waste streams for more efficient recycling. The product helps reduce labor costs and improve worker well-being.
The station offers the convenience of one centralized location with an all-in-one solution that encourages participation and compliance. Any combination of four snap-in tops with various item-specific openings can be used to sort different types of recyclable waste. A symbol and word label pack is also provided with each station. Multi-lingual word labels, along with highly visible iconic labels, provide universal cues for end-users and help minimize waste stream contamination.
“Supporting our customers’ recycling efforts while working to help reduce their waste disposal and labor costs is our priority,” says Product Manager Numair Khan. “For a recycling collection to be successful, the receptacles have to be as easy to maintain as they are to use. And with our impact and scratch resistant plastic, the stations are easy to clean and empty.”
The station includes four removable 23-gallon Slim Jim containers and two Glutton 56-gallon containers, for a total capacity of 92 gallons. This means fewer trips to empty the container. The lid frame fits over the containers to create a unified, cohesive station. A center hinge allows the lid to be opened from either side and eliminates the need to remove it during emptying, helping to reduce worker strain and trip-and-fall hazards.
