Use your mini-bin to carry waste from your office to your kitchenette or common area where you can sort waste into the appropriate containers. Please note — cleaners will not empty mini-bins!
Concordia has adopted a "trashless" office model: standard desk-side trash bins are being replaced by mini-bins which users sort out into landfill, compost and recycling at centralized waste sorting areas. This saves a lot of recyclable and compostable waste from landfill!
How it works
- Desk-side trash bins are replaced by mini bins
- Compost bins were added to kitchenettes
- Recycling bins remain unaffected
Your office kitchenette compost bin is emptied more often than your office's trash so there is no risk of odours or fruit flies.
Easy to use
Using the compost bin is as easy as using a trash bin. Not sure what goes in the compost? You’ll find that most items are compostable or recyclable. Learn more about what goes in compost!
