Innovative waste and

recycling containers
a bin is
a bin right?
Just a box for waste, something to take for granted,
nothing more than a feint backdrop to an urban white
noise. And do you know what? That’s just fine by us.
We think that bins should blend in.

People don’t need to know that the bin they have just put their rubbish or recycling in
conforms to international standards, is hot dip galvanised, and will typically last for over
10 years.

We’re pretty certain that providing it’s there when they need it, they won’t realise that it’s
made in Britain, by the world’s leading manufacturer of steel bins or that there’s a million or
so of them dotted around the globe.

And as they walk away, they’ll no doubt be blissfully unaware of the importance that bin
has on it’s owner, operator or collector, nor will they realise that the aesthetic design, paint
colour and logos has just helped them to segregate and dispose of their waste properly

But we are.

We know that for you, a bin is a critical element in your operation, an investment that
needs cast-iron reliability, durability and efficiency. We know too that a poorly designed
bin can have a hugely negative impact on your budget and reputation.

Most of all, we know that to you, a bin is so much more than simply a bin.
