Reusable Recycling Bags Make Dorm Recycling Easy for Students

When Space is Limited for Students in Dorms, What is The Perfect Fit for Recycling?

There is a huge problem in our country and Factory Direct Promos has the solution. Our colleges and universities are doing a great job of recycling on campus, but the process gets difficult when it comes to university housing. Dorm rooms are typically very small and recycling typically takes space to store and sort cans, bottles and other items. When space is tight, like in a dorm room, recycling can be a challenge. The easy solution to dorm recycling lies in using reusable recycling bags.

The Value to Recycling

We all know the tremendous value to recycling. Items like metal, glass, and plastic can be repurposed and used again and again. It makes sense to recycle these items to continue to use these materials. When glass or plastic bottles and metal cans are not recycled they usually end up in landfills. This is a problem because landfills can only accept so much stuff.

Eventually, landfills can reach maximum capacity and another solution is needed. Glass, plastic, and metal do not break down, so when these materials are tossed in a landfill they will simply take up space. This contributes to the space problem and requires virgin materials to be used to fulfill the need and demand for bottles and cans. Recycling is a continuous loop of using resources.

Recycling at College University Dorm Rooms

College dorm rooms normally house one, two or up to four students in a quad. Many recyclables are generated from the kitchen, but there is still a tremendous amount of waste generated in the dorms rooms themselves. Students still prepare food in their dorm room, utilize packaging, drink sodas and other beverages, and have MANY opportunities to recycle. But it isn't always easy to recycle in university housing - until now.

Benefits of Reusable Recycling Bags

There is a need to store recyclable items in dorm rooms, but there is not a need for a big bulky bin used to collect items for recycling. Many campuses are using the bin solution but recycling bins are a waste of space in a room that is known for being small. Reusable recycling bags present a convenient solution to collect and store items.

The handles allow the bag to easily be hung from a hook or even a doorknob on a closet or slung on the back of a chair. Recyclable items are contained and organized and when the bag is full the students can simply empty the bag into a larger bin in a community area. The handle on the bottom of our reusable recycling bags makes emptying the bag quick and easy.

Durability of Reusable Recycling Bags

Our bags are built to last. The reusable recycling bags feature a durable material that contains spills and messes, so if a can or jar with food residue ends up in the bag the mess will not leak and cause a bigger mess. If necessary the bags can be washed. The stitching holds up and supports the weight of the items inside when the bag is hung by the handles.

Custom Reusable Recycling Bags

Choose to have custom artwork printed on your reusable recycling bags. From the school logo to recycling instructions, make the bag stand out to remind students to recycle. Create a chart explaining what items can be recycled, so students can easily identify how to sort their bottles and cans.
