Recent years, the bulk bins near canteens are filled more frequently than the others. The major component in this bulkh bin are empty cardboard thrown by the food vendors. This lead to the introduction of a separate cage for placing cardboard. Some of the important features in this cage/cupboard are:
1. The height of the cage is large enough to collect two times the cardboard collected in trash bins.
2. The empty cardboard must be flattened before placing it in the cage. This ensures that the cage can accommodate more number of cartons.
3. The cartons should be properly arranged with one door always closed.
4. All the posters are with Chinese translation and helpline number for the vendors to know what to do
We got the idea for such cages/ cupboard after paying a site visit to NTUC to see how they better cope with the large numbers of carton.
