Monday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network
(ICAN) "Ask the Experts"
page: Is there a standard used to determine how many trash receptacles are needed per sq. ft. of building space such as hallways, large lecture halls, classrooms, common areas, etc.?
While institutions such as yours may have developed, from experience, standards that work for them, I doubt there has ever been a concerted effort to produce one that fits all, simply because of the variables involved.
How much traffic is there and how much is discarded? How large a container are you considering? How often are you emptying them?
I suggest you walk around with discard points...
