Signs help people find recycling receptacles and use them correctly. Signs that are visible from a distance should tell people where to recycle. Signs seen at arm’s length should list materials that belong inside a recycling bin. Signs at points of purchase and other places where people gather or wait in line should remind guests to recycle and credit the facility for doing its part to help the environment and keep the event clean and safe.

* A note about printing signs – while it usually reduces waste to use durable, reusable signs, there are some setting where signs need frequent replacement. Signs on portable bars, tapper trucks or roll-off boxes are lost when the fixtures leave the site. Also, avoid team or event logos on signs for public areas – fans have taken signs and sometimes whole bins for souvenirs.
