Introduction to Outdoor Waste Receptacles
Patio waste receptacles include trash bins as well as recycle bins suited for use in outdoor environments. These patio accessories can be used in private settings as well as public parks, restaurants, and on city sidewalks. Engineered for continuous and year-round outdoor use in a wide range of climates and environments, outdoor waste receptacles feature sturdy designs and rugged, durable material construction. PatioLiving carries a diverse variety of waste receptacle options graded for commercial use, from top brands including Tropitone and Woodard, with many sizes and shapes to choose from. Many models feature contemporary designs and stylish details, making for sleek receptacles resilient to the effects of wind, rain, snow, and other elements.
Types of Outdoor Waste Receptacles
Popular materials used for constructing patio waste receptacles include aluminum and recycled plastic. Other available material types include resin, cast aluminum, wrought iron, and steel. Recycled plastic receptacles can feature trendy, wood-look styling and vibrant, fade-resistant colors, making them appear more visible in sizable spaces, such as in large parks or crowded commercial venues. Recycled plastic outdoor trash cans are also virtually maintenance free. Aluminum receptacles feature solid aluminum construction, making even small aluminum trash cans heavy enough to remain standing in brisk winds or other inclement weather. These types of receptacles feature simple geometric styling and numerous finish options for a customizable look. Relatively compact in size, aluminum receptacles function well in residential settings, including private patios and backyards. Other available outdoor waste receptacle features include protective canopy tops, intended to keep rain and snow out of the basket of the receptacle, as well as integrated ashtrays and engraved rims to indicate the use of the receptacle (recycling or trash). Patio waste receptacles pair well with benches, especially in public parks, and can serve as a convenient accessory when placed adjacent to any patio bar or dining table for quick and convenient disposal of waste.
Benefits of Outdoor Waste Receptacles
Patio waste receptacles attend to a vital need in any private or commercial outdoor living space by providing a space to dispose of all garbage, from plastic cups to yard waste. In public spaces, outdoor waste receptacles encourage people to recycle and not litter their waste on the ground, keeping outdoor spaces cleaner, greener, and healthier. Modern models feature sleek and smart styling, suited to blend with any outdoor aesthetic. Patio receptacles can also make cleaning up after an outdoor get-together or barbecue faster and more efficient.
