UK recycling bins

Did you know that 10 Years ago in October 2007 Government Regulations have stated that all businesses must recycle part of their waste.

Manufactured from sustainably sourced materials, which also contain a high percentage of recycled paper fibres. To minimise 'manufacturing miles' all products are made in the UK. From site of manufacturing to the distribution centre is 99 miles (Chinese Imports typically 11,000 miles)


Green Bin & Liners This product offers a low cost & effective entry into any waste paper recycling initiative, whilst enhancing the office environment by being a practical and fun to use product.

The re-usable ‘Green Bin Liners’ prolong the life of the bin, whilst enabling the contents to be easily removed and identified as 'Recycled Waste’ rather than 'Landfill Waste’.

Green Bin Liners are on a continuous roll with tear off perforations which assist with storage and dispensing.

With around 80% of all office paper waste being of good recyclable quality, a recycling initiative such as this will have a major impact on reducing landfill waste, whilst putting a ‘stick in the ground’ for future goals in carbon footprint reduction.

Deskside Recycling Unit This slimline desk recycling unit fits snugly at the end and beneath the lip of your desk.

There are four compartments for the storage and separation of:

Cans – Plastic – Paper – Waste

The four bin units are held in place with one common lid and base.

Having a waste compartment included within the recycling bank allows users to deposit all material in one visit. The smaller combined unit also allows more bins to be conveniently situated in an office environment, rather than having to visit more remote and (less used) larger bins.

Manufactured in the UK and made from up to 80% recycled fluted board, the Deskside Unit aims to be a product with a low carbon footprint. From our manufacturing site to our storage and distribution centre is only 99 miles.

The patented ‘drop out base’ allow full loads to be accessed by lifting the body of the bin unit in an upward direction, leaving the full sack in base ready for removal.

Optional bin liners facilitate easy removal of the contents, whilst the see through liners allow identification of the contents.

  • Capacity: 42 litres (4 x 20 litres)

Pedestal Recycling Bin The ‘Pedestal Recycling Bin’ was developed for two purposes, firstly so that commonly used recycling bins could be kept beneath a desk out of sight, and secondly to ensure they were used effectively.

The ‘Pedestal Recycling Bin’ facilitates the effective depositing of recyclable waste. This discreet unit allows more bins to be conveniently situated in an office environment, rather than having to visit more remote and less used receptacles. By allowing your office workers to separate waste at source it will lead to greater care, participation, willingness and accuracy in the separation of your waste.

The blank ‘identity’ panel at the front and back of the lid enables the nature of your recycling bin to be flexible. Four labels are supplied for suggested recycling uses, and a further four (pealable) labels can be customised by running them through your own coloured inkjet or laser printer.

Three visibility holes in the front will allow cleaners to gauge if the bin requires emptying

The 'reusable' recycling bin liners are manufactured from 'Virgin' Polythene. This creates a lower carbon footprint than manufacturing a bag containing recycled material.

By using 'Virgin' material you are able to maintain an accurate and consistent degree of strength in the bags.

Bags which contain 'regrind' (recycled) filler have to be 'over-engineered' to overcome the fluctuations in poor quality regrind material that is used in the batch.

Ethylene is a 'by product' of refining petrol. Barrels of oil are not used specifically to produce Polythene

Around 40% more carbon is produced in manufacturing a recycled bag over a virgin polythene bag
