People have 2-3 seconds to make the right choice as they approach a recycling bin. Graphics that stand out and clearly communicate what needs to go into that bin are critical for success. Less is definitely more though when it comes to the number of images. Too many can become confusing and so people give up and toss their waste into the nearest bin.You can see why visual graphics can make a huge difference in the success of a recycling program.
Clear, concise graphics build program awareness, and when people recycle correctly, stream contamination is vastly reduced. Graphics can be customized with images of actual waste such as branded food containers. They can also include sustainability messages and be swapped out with new graphics to adapt with changing needs.
