Tips to Reduce or Prevent Parking Lot Litter
Litter is not only harmful to our environment, but it can also have damaging effects on your business revenue if it spills into your parking lot and left to rot. When trash, old food, garbage and bottles are strewn across your parking lot it gives a very bad impression to potential customers and can also become a safety hazard. Taking a few extra steps to prevent parking lot litter can go a long way in your reputation and improve your customer’s experience. Exit 7 Sealcoating, asphalt maintenance & repair company, offers several fool-proof tips to reduce and prevent litter in your business parking lot.
4 Easy Ways to Maintain a Litter-Free Parking Lot
Multiple Trash Cans: Unfortunately, if people do not have a convenient place to put their trash there is a good chance it will be left on your parking lot. Depending on the size of your lot there should be multiple receptacles placed in safe, yet noticeable spots.
Post Signage: Along with trash cans should be directional signs which allow patrons to easily identify areas where trash can be discarded. Providing signs with accurate, easy to read directions makes your customers more inclined to properly throw away their trash and recyclables.
Hire a Lot Attendant: You can hire a dedicated lot attendant or ask one of your employees to do a litter check every few hours and clean up any cigarette butts, garbage and recycling properly. Not only will this ensure your parking lot stays litter-free, but when customers see a clean lot they may be less likely to litter themselves.
Invest in your Business Parking Lot: Finally, when you take the necessary steps and time to invest in your parking lot it has a huge reflection in your company’s values. Besides keeping your parking lot free of litter, you can invest in annual asphalt sealcoating, new paving, pothole repair and parking lot line striping.
