Big picture approach to recycling pays off at new learning centre LEAFIELD Recycle - 19.9.2014

Leafield Environmental has developed an internal recycling bin for Bath Spa University’s newly opened state-of-the art learning centre. The stylish SteriBin is a functional pedal-operated unit which blends seamlessly with the modern look and feel of the building.

Leafield Business Development Manager Vince Wright said: “Bath Spa’s sustainability team contacted us in the early planning stages to ask for help to develop a bespoke recycling solution to complement the contemporary building design.”

The SteriBin has integral pedals and wheels for easy transit to collection points and can be produced in a range of colours. The WRAP compliant vibrant lids can suit up to eight different waste streams and each bin can hold up to 65L capacity with an optional plastic liner. The handle was added to allow easy access to the bins for wheelchair users unable to operate the pedal.

“This is the second recycling bin Leafield has developed for Bath Spa University for faculty buildings and office areas but now we are also working on exciting new stacking bin to save space in student accommodation,” he said.

Note to editors:

  • Universities are putting waste management at the top of the agenda to maximise significant environmental benefits as well as cost savings. Installing a more efficient waste management system with clear signage can drive up recycling rates by more than 50% in just a few months.
