Every year, private households produce million tons of waste. A large part of this is packaging waste. This cannot always be avoided, but it is important to recycle as much waste as possible in order to save natural resources and reduce energy consumption. Waste separation is the crucial point here, because in order to produce high-quality recyclable material, the waste should be as little contaminated as possible and disposed of in suitable categories. With a few simple steps, waste separation at home is not complicated at all and the environment is relieved.
To make waste separation easy at home, use a separate bin for each type of waste. These categories are distinguished:
Depending on the place of use and the size of the household, the capacity of waste bins and pedal bins plays a decisive role:
Bathrooms and toilets
Mainly here residual waste, such as hygiene articles, but also material in the form of shampoo and shower gel bottles are disposed of, which is why waste bins and pedal bins with a capacity of up to seven litres are completely sufficient for the bathroom.
Kitchen, utility room and storage room
The amount of waste in the kitchen, on the other hand, is considerably higher and it is mainly organic waste, residual waste and material. In addition, there is glass and paper, which can also be collected in storerooms or utility rooms.
For the kitchen, therefore, waste bins that have a capacity of at least 20 - preferably 30 litres each - are the right choice. To separate everything properly, there is the option of placing several bins or using a bin with an integrated separation system. If you have limited space or a family household, you can also use a bin with an integrated compressor to reduce the volume of packaging waste.
The mechanism for opening the bin and the opening itself define the bin's place of use, as does the capacity.
In the bathroom the following types of waste bins are particularly suitable, each with their own advantages:
"Bathrooms and guest bathrooms are among the smallest rooms in most households, so it's especially important here to convey calm and order while still having everything you need at hand. Range items are the best choice for combining both - an effortlessly cohesive look with the help of a bin, soap dispenser and toilet brush." - Viktoria, interior design expert
In the kitchen, utility room and storage room these rubbish bins are particularly practical:
Organic waste needs a different waste bin. Unlike residual waste and material, this should not be collected in an additional bag, but without a bag or simply in paper bags. Alternatively, you can wrap moist organic waste, such as potato peelings, in kitchen paper or line the organic waste bin with kitchen paper.
Since organic waste tends to smell, small organic waste bins - ideally also with odour filters - are recommended to avoid collecting too much organic waste.
Plastic, metal, stainless steel and rubber are the best materials for rubbish bins, as they are all strong, robust and easy to clean, both inside and out. Moreover, each material still has its own advantage:
