You can place smaller systems in small places, and larger ones in larger places. You need not choose a one-for-everywhere apporach. Green is very local sometimes.
Remember how we've discussed the importance of a trash bin with the recycling or you just end up with all the trash and recycling in one bin? Well here are some examples of trash (or trash and compost) bins no one will separate:
|US Botanic Garden, Washington, DC|
|Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore|
This option doesn't allow much branding by your institution becuase the sides are the tradiational anchored garban can holder, But then you may not need to generate andy more branding material, anyway.
The Science Center's option is a VERY close second because it has a composting section. Okay - maybe it's becoming my favorite. Composting is the Next Frontier for recyclers.
So - have you spotted any good trash/recycle pairings we should know about?
