Every year, German households produce over 40 million tons of household 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 key point here, because in order to produce high-quality recycled 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 at home easy, use a separate waste garbage can 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.
Predominantly 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 garbage cans and pedal bins with a capacity of up to seven liters are perfectly adequate for the bathroom .
Kitchen, utility room and storeroom
The garbage volume in the kitchen is however clearly higher and it concerns predominantly bio garbage, remainder garbage and material . In addition glass and paper come, which can be collected however also well in storerooms or housekeeping areas.
For the kitchen therefore waste garbage cans, which have a capacity of at least 20 - better 30 liters each - are the right choice . To separate everything properly, there is the option of placing several trash cans or make use of a waste garbage can with an integrated separation system. If there is little space or a family household, trash cans with an integrated compressor are also an option, so that the volume of packaging waste is reduced.
The mechanism for opening the trash can and the opening itself, as well as the capacity, define the place of use of the trash can.
In the bathroom are suitable especially the following types of trash cans, each of which has its own advantage:
"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 your fingertips. Series items are the best choice for combining both - an effortlessly cohesive look with the help of a trash can, soap dispenser and toilet brush." - Viktoria, interior design expert
In the kitchen, utility room and storage room these trash cans are especially practical:
Organic waste requires a different waste garbage can. This should be collected in contrast to residual waste and material not in an additional bag, but without a bag or only in paper bags. Alternatively, you can wrap wet organic waste, such as potato peels, in kitchen paper or line the organic waste garbage can with kitchen paper.
Since organic waste tends to smell, small organic waste garbage cans - ideally also with odor filters - are recommended to avoid collecting too much organic waste.
Plastic, metal, stainless steel and rubber are the best materials for trash cans because they are all strong, sturdy and easy to clean both inside and out. In addition, each material still has its own advantage:
