Drop-off facilities primarily consist of a range of different bins for different materials.
The bins are typically smaller capacity transfer bins that are picked up frequently by a range of different recycling contractors.
Trucks often have access to pick-up bins through the public areas during opening hours.
Bins are often overfilled, waiting to be serviced, particularly on weekends.
Most sites, while well-intentioned, become messy and chaotic, requiring more oversite than sites can provide.
More effort is often exerted to maintain cleanliness and safety than resource recovery.
