Dual Recycling Containers for the City of El Monte

The City of El Monte, California is a residential and industrial city located east of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley. With a population of around 120,000, El Monte is the ninth largest city in Los Angeles County.

Known as the hub of the San Gabriel Valley, El Monte is ever-growing through new businesses and public improvements. With their ‘business-friendly attitude’ and international corporations, this city is a popular area for both commercial and retail businesses alike.

The state of California is currently one of 10 U.S. states to have implemented a container deposit law, commonly known as a Bottle Bill. This regulation involves including a small deposit within the price of any beverage sold in a single-use container, the amount of which is refunded when or if the container is returned for recycling. The aim is to encourage recycling and reduce littering when it comes to single-use beverage containers.

To help improve their container collecting facilities and increase recycling rates, the City of El Monte selected our versatile Nexus 52G Dual Recycling Container adapted for the collection of plastic bottles and aluminum cans Nexus® 52G dual recycling containers.

The Nexus 52G recycling containers feature a slim, elliptical shape with a narrow footprint, making them the ideal recycling solution in busy outdoor environments and public spaces. With four large apertures and two separate internal liners for waste segregation, these outdoor recycling bins are designed to collect multiple waste streams whilst minimizing the risk of cross-contamination.
