Our Story

Why is a wooden recycling bin better?

A recycling bin made of wood is a more sustainable choice than a plastic rubbish bin because it is biodegradable and can be reused or recycled. Wood is also a renewable resource, so it has a smaller environmental impact than plastic. Sortaider products are made of waterproof Baltic birch plywood (FSC certified), which is one of the most valued materials in the world for its strength and durability. Unlike metal and plastic, Plywood does not emit CO2 but instead removes it from circulation. Sortaider waste bins made of plywood will last longer and is more durable than a plastic rubbish bin.

Recycling is one of the easiest ways to reduce your ecological footprint every day

According to Stanford research, 77% of people want to become more eco friendly.

Recycling is one of the easiest and most effective ways to start reducing your ecological footprint daily. Sorting waste is the first step to recycling. By using a Sortaider recycling bin, you can help reduce landfill waste and sort your rubbish into different recycling streams such as bio waste, carton, deposit based waste, mixed waste, paper and packaging.

Not only does this make recycling easier, but it also helps to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill. Recycling bins are a great way to make recycling easy and convenient for everyone. There are many different types of recycling bins available on the market, so it is important to choose one that best suits your needs. If you are looking for a recycling bin for your office or home, and want to keep the interior design stylish and modern, then the Sortaider recycling bin is the perfect choice for your home or business.

Our mini waste station set consists of four bins with lids and drawers which enables to collect four different types of waste generated in the house: plastic, metal and beverage packaging, paper and cardboard, bio-waste and other household waste. The idea to procure a recycling station like that came from the rural municipality mayor Indrek Kullam with the aim of encouraging both the residents and the institutions of the rural municipality to sort waste. And the best way to do that is to start with yourself.

For a long time we were looking for a solution that was the right size and had a beautiful appearance and would fit in our office. Sortaider recycling solution was just right for our office. As beginners in recycling, it seemed especially cool and convenient for us that the garbage bins have instructions on what kind of waste goes into each bin. Everything is solved very logically – it’s very nicely clarified which waste should be placed in the appropriate container.

We cooperated with Sortaider who also advised the team. Their first recommendation was to remove the usual rubbish bins which were placed under the employees' desks. Getting rid of them is also good for health, because this way people move around the office more. Recycling stations for collecting different types of waste were put at the entrance to the premises and on the other side of the office where the Pärnu County Business Incubator is located.

Sortaider's recycling solution stood out from other competitors primarily due to its ease of use, practicality and good appearance. The clarity of the message was also a very important aspect in the selection – each type of waste is clearly distinguishable with different colors and pictograms. A helpful addition was also the sorting guide inside the box to make the whole process as simple and clear as possible.

We decided in favor of Sortaider, because the recycling station is made of natural materials and looks good visually, it is not a so-called foreign body made of either metal or plastic. The price was also reasonable.
