Who would have ever guessed that 5 gallon plastic buckets can be useful at the office? Perhaps not in the most visible area where you receive your business guests. But there are many other aspects that an office has than just having clients or business partners over. These are some of the many uses of 5 gallon pails in your office.
Used paper container.
Research shows that Americans waste approximately 4 million tons of office paper in a year. So here is a little advice: recycle your paper and use it until you cannot use it. When you receive a letter or print out a document that you no longer use, store them in a 5 gallon bucket for future use. You may need to use scrap paper one of these days and you can save the environment by using both sides of the used paper stored there.
A waste bin.
Yes, a waste bin. Why not? Every office needs a waste bin. When you are done writing on both sides of a piece of paper, throw it away in your 5 gallon pail waste bin.
Is your office lack in space and another shelf or rack will only make it smaller? Use a 5 gallon bucket to store things like stationary. An office needs to stock up office supplies such as pencils, pens, erasers, staple pins, post-it notes, cartridges, etc. You can store these little things in the pail until the one on your desk runs out.
Past correspondence container.
Bills, contract agreements, invoices can also be stored in a 5 gallon bucket. You may not need these papers anymore, but you may want to keep them if they are needed in the future for a reference. A space-saver 5 gallon pail can be a perfect place to store them. All you need to do is put a label of the type of documents you are storing and/or the year.
