Many businesses need to move around heavy machinery, electronics, and office equipment. To get everything to the right place in a decent amount of time while avoiding workplace injury, a set of containers can be used to stage everything in the right place. Here are a few efficient placement planning points to help your business move everything to storage and disposal areas with as little effort and investment as possible.
Staging Areas For Useful Objects
If you don't plan on throwing your old equipment away, it's tempting to put everything into a storage closet. Have you considered the effort needed to take everything back out again? To avoid clutter and dealing with an avalanche of old equipment, consider a strategic container placement plan.
For smaller objects, this is as simple as putting everything into a series of boxes. Most of the time, you can neatly place and layer the objects with an easy enough chance to pull objects out of the boxes without spilling everything. If the objects are easily jumbled, place a few cardboard flaps or separating pieces of plastic between every full layer of objects.
Larger objects such as office chairs are harder to handle with boxes. Instead, a set of rails can be used to stack the office chairs on the floor, then upside down on a set of rails. This kind of vertical stacking can be done without rails, but you run the risk of everything falling on the floor.
Recycling Planning For Businesses
Do you need to put a lot of objects into recycling containers? Some objects may be small enough for hand-carry recycling bins, but other objects may need larger dumpsters.
Larger objects include fully-intact computers, copiers, and other larger electronics. Although some of these objects can be dismantled for the scrap materials, businesses that just want to toss it all out need to worry about workplace injury.
These heavier objects can be harder to carry without spinal or shoulder injury. To make the job easier, create staging areas with smaller containers inside your business. Empty rooms are good storage, but to keep everything organized and to stack objects vertically without dealing with computers crashing to the floor, containers about a quarter of the size of your offices can hold the objects without weaving through employees or other equipment.
