Introducing Element, the Latest in Upscale Recycling Solutions from Rubbermaid Commercial Products
Winchester, VA - Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP), the leader in innovative, solutions-based products, announces the newest addition to its comprehensive line of indoor recycling receptacles. New Element Indoor Recycling Stations provide stylish, centralized collection for multi-stream waste and recycling sortation.
"Faced with increasing sustainability regulations and the rise of green building, facility managers and building owners need products that not only satisfy corporate and government requirements, but are also an aesthetically pleasing solution to their recycling program needs," said Victoria Ciupak, Senior Product Manager - Decorative Receptacles at Rubbermaid Commercial Products. "The attractive design of Element Recycling Stations make them especially suitable for end-users who are concerned about maintaining an appealing indoor environment. Plus, Element Indoor Recycling Stations are available in up to four waste stream configurations and they meet or exceed EPA guidelines for post-consumer recycled content. Element combines design, function, and sustainability to create a versatile recycling solution."
The rounded edges and graceful lines of Element provide a stylish look for any appearance-conscious indoor environment. The smooth Uni-Koat® powder coated finish, in Silver Metallic or Desert Pearl, resists scratches and fingerprints and makes cleaning easy. The factory installed labeling gives the appearance of being etched into the surface of the unit, adding to Element's upscale appearance. "Custom colors and labeling options are also available," said Ciupak, "making Element Indoor Recycling Stations the perfect choice for all front-of-house applications, from high-end shopping malls and restaurants to metropolitan hotels."
FLEXIBILITY & DURABILITY
Element Indoor Recycling Stations are available in one, two, three, or four waste stream configurations to meet any sortation need. In its four-stream configuration, Element Indoor Recycling Stations can hold up to 57 gallons of waste and recyclable materials. A combination of restrictively shaped openings and word labels provide visual cues for the end-user and help minimize waste stream contamination. The piano-hinged doors, featuring comfortable rounded and recessed hand grips, are available with an optional lock to secure contents and deter theft and vandalism. This front door access to waste reduces bending and helps safeguard worker well-being. Leak-proof rigid plastic liners are standard in all Element Indoor Recycling Stations; fire-safe, heavy-gauge galvanized steel liners are also available to create a completely fire-safe steel station.
"Element Indoor Recycling Stations are fully recyclable at the end of their usable life, and that combined with their post-consumer recycled material content means Element can count toward achieving LEED credit," said Ciupak. Element Indoor Recycling Stations, like all Rubbermaid Commercial Products metal products, exceed EPA guidelines for recommended post-consumer recycled content. In addition, the Uni-Koat® powder coated finish uses no VOCs in the paint or painting process, making Element the smart, sustainable solution for recycling collection.
