Step-Up Recycling with Rubbermaid Commercial’s Slim Jim Recycling Stations

December 13, 2017 | No Comments »

Improve your recycling game using the Slim Jim Recycling Station from Rubbermaid Commercial Products! Known for their durability and venting channels to make removing liners 80% easier, Slim Jim recycling components also offer a convenient cinch that secures liners around the rim of the container and allow for knot-free liner changes.

It is really simple to set up (no hardware needed), and will give users a clear indication where items go. Simply choose the number of bases and lids that you will need. Next, order enough snap on connectors to attach to each base to the one next to it. A simple billboard attaches the rear of each base, allowing for a variety of different waste labels to indicate the intended waste. Choose from either icons or words.

Rubbermaid Commercial also offers a number of lid inserts to help make sure that various items make it into the right receptacles. For instance, one has a long narrow slot for plastic plates; another has a round hole for cans and bottles. Billboards and lid inserts come in multiple colors to further differentiate bins. You can order all components for your recycling station individually, or select from a number of preconfigured kits that include common combinations of recycling options.

Rubbermaid Commercial’s Slim Jim Recycling Station components are tough enough for commercial kitchens, but attractive enough for front of the house placement!

Gender Neutral Restroom Signage from Crown Brands

December 6, 2017 | No Comments »

Despite opinions on the issue of gender neutral restrooms and gender identity, operators must find solutions that inform all patrons of what facilities are available, and where they are located. Depending on the operation, simple “His” and “Hers” signs may no longer be sufficient.

Update International, from Crown Brands, has introduced new signage for “All Gender Restrooms.” These are 6”x9” signs with easy, self-adhesive backing. They are professional looking, easy to read, and include Braille to satisfy the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The signs also feature the traditional standard international symbols for “Women” (stick figure in a dress), and “Men” (stick figure in pants) along with a new third international graphic symbol that combines both (stick figure with half a dress and half a pair of pants). These signs will satisfy policy and code requirements, and let your customers know you are aware of the issue, and seeking to accommodate all.

Find this sign and more at Update International’s website.
