The recycling zones conceptualized by The 4th Bin offer a more compact, complementary and less costly alternative to the multiplication of ecocentres throughout the city.
They ensure greater territorial efficiency by allowing citizens to dispose of all HHW in the same place without being discouraged by the long lines.
The accessibility and proximity of these drop-off points allow for better management of undesirable materials by reducing the amount of waste abandoned through illegal dumping.
The 4th Bin becomes a new municipal service point that meets many community needs by creating more direct links, particularly between citizens and retailers, with the common goal of reducing the impact of what is marketed by one and used by the other.
Relationship with the citizens
Depending on the formula chosen, the municipality can benefit from the services of The 4th Bin to design and build custom-made facilities that meet its needs. It may decide to operate the facility itself or to rely on the organization’s trained and professional technicians to manage its drop-off points.
