How New Yorkers Can Save BIG with the GTS 1500

by Global Trash Solutions

New York City generates a lot of waste every single day, from small pizza shops and apartment buildings to hotels, retail stores, and office buildings. The city has outlined a plan where it hopes to achieve zero waste going into landfills by 2030. However, over the past few years, the number of recycled materials has declined.

Part of the problem with this decline is not everyone knows what or how to recycle. As such, things that can’t be recycled end up in recycling and things that can be recycled end up in general waste.

In addition, the NYC trash bins for recycling tend to not be that big due to limited space. They fill up quickly and anything that doesn’t fit often ends up in the trash. Further complicating the matter is whether trash removal is picked up by the New York Department of Sanitation or one of the private waste haulers.

To help make things easier and reach its goal, New York City has rolled out new voluntary programs to help encourage New Yorkers to recycle more, which complement existing mandatory programs for paper, cardboard, and mixed recyclables. These voluntary programs include recycling textiles, organics, and electronic waste.

New York City has added in-building recycling bins for each of these additional types of materials. Textiles are any type of clothing, towels, bedsheets, and so on, that can be recycled and reused. Organics are any type of yard waste, paper soiled by food products, and any type of food waste. Electronics waste is any type of electronic device, such as TVs, radios, smartphones, computers, etc.

New Yorkers can further make the recycling processes easier with the GTS 1500 from Global Trash Solutions. This indoor commercial trash compactor has a small footprint and does not take up that much space. It can compact 8 bags of waste into a single tidy cube.

The GTS 1500 is also perfect for compacting and baling cardboard and paper for recycling, as well as compacting various types of recyclable plastics. By compacting waste and recyclables, the issues with bins filling up too quickly are alleviated, so more materials can end up in the right NYC trash bins and help reduce the amount of waste going to landfills.

Additionally, the streets and sidewalks in New York City won’t be littered with piles of trash each evening. Imagine, instead of having to carry out 8 or 10 bags of trash a night, you just had a single bag of waste on the sidewalk for pickup!

Where the GTS 1500 Can Be Used

The GTS 15000 is designed to be used in a variety of places indoors, including:

  • Restaurants

Even for small businesses like a corner pizza shop, the GTS 1500 will pay for itself quickly in just a few months if you are currently spending $130 a month on waste management costs.
