Method generally recommends one recycling station per 30 - 50 employees, which should be less than a 10-second walk away. Making all waste and recycling streams easily available. They also suggest placing single bins or smaller stations where recyclables are produced such as a paper bin next to the photocopier or an organics bin in the kitchen to maximise results.
