Best Places to Install Outdoor Trash Receptacles

At UltraSite, our outdoor trash receptacles aim to reduce litter and recklessly distributed waste at universities, malls, offices, parks, and apartments.

School Campuses

One of the best ways you can educate students on litter reduction is to lead by example. Place trash cans and recycling bins around campus to encourage students on how to be good stewards of the environment. At UltraSite, we offer plenty of outdoor trash receptacles and recycling recycling bins that are heavy-duty and built to withstand the elements.

Shopping Centers

Keep your shopping center or mall clean with commercial trash receptacles. Many places will place outdoor trash receptacles outside of entryways and exits. This encourages shoppers to throw away trash that could inevitably end up in parking lots or surrounding landscaping.


Installing commercial trash receptacles in parks is key to reducing litter. Parks littered with trash have the potential to cause a lot of damage to the native plants and animals. Buying trash receptacles for your park help keep the park clean and visitors happy.

It’s important to install enough trash receptacles depending on the size of your park. Many parks will place them at the start of trailheads, parking lots and restrooms. If possible, park staff should place trash receptacles along walking paths in easily accessible areas.

Keep in mind that park staff needs to reach trash receptacles in order to empty them. If trash receptacles go un-emptied, they may overflow.

Apartment Complexes

When constructing an apartment complex, it's important to place trash bins near resident buildings and parking lots to minimize litter. An apartment complex is home for many people, so installing trash receptacles and recycling bins keeps it looking clean and appealing to potential new residents.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of trash receptacles available?

We offer a wide range of trash receptacles specially designed for outdoor use. Whether you prefer a classic or a contemporary design, our trash receptacles are available in different materials, sizes, and functionalities to suit your surroundings.

What size trash receptacle do I need?

Determining the appropriate size for your trash receptacle depends on the waste management needs of the area you intend to install them. For instance, in areas with high foot traffic, it's advisable to opt for larger trash cans. This choice helps prevent the bins from filling up too quickly and spilling over before they're emptied. On the other hand, if you're dealing with areas that are less frequented or regularly maintained, smaller trash receptacles may be the more practical choice.

At UltraSite, our typical trash receptacles range in size from 32 gallon to 55 gallon options.
