Nexus City 64G Takes Recycling to Capitol Heights

The Town of Capitol Heights resides in Prince George’s County in Maryland. With approximately 4,400 citizens, Capitol Heights is a relatively small yet vibrant, urban and inclusive community. With a developing shopping and business district and its own Metro Station, Capitol Heights has received the accolade of being named a ‘Gateway to the Nation’s Capitol’ by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Customized Nexus City 64G Trash and Recycle Bins for Capitol Heights

Sustainability is important to the Town of Capitol Heights and they often encourage residents to get involved in recycling initiatives or events including their “Clean Sweep” event which calls for residents to help clean up litter in their neighbourhood, come rain or shine.

To help further increase their recycling rates, Capitol Heights were awarded grant funding to purchase new recycling containers. The Nexus City® 64G recycling bins were the ideal choice for encouraging community residents to dispose of trash responsibly.

Improving on-street recycling with the Nexus City 64G trash and recycle combo

Capitol Heights customized their Nexus City 64G trash cans to feature a personalized graphic board noting the waste streams along with their community logo, recycling message and #DareToCare campaign. They also added custom flip lids to match the chosen waste stream colors of the trash cans, creating an aesthetically-pleasing finished look whilst hygienically concealing waste.

The Nexus City 64G trash and recycling bins can house a 64 gallon bag or a 36 gallon wheeled garbage cart. Thanks to the large capacity size, the Nexus City 64G makes a great outdoor recycling station for public spaces.
