Leafield success at RWM LEAFIELD Recycle - 18.9.2012

Leafield are recently returned from the RWM show and are pleased to say that judging from the flood of visitors to their stand, it seemed busier than ever. The stand got more than its fair share of compliments and the new Meridian Envirobins were really well received, especially the Triple lid for the Meridian which was the first outing for this unique recycling bin.

The Meridian recycling bin was designed in conjunction with the University of Greenwich to produce the ultimate recycling bin. The stylish Meridian is designed for the sustainable journey; the 110 litre bin is available with interchangeable lids which enable a company to change the waste streams as the recycling project progresses with a view to the achieving the ultimate goal of ‘Zero Waste’. The Triple lid adds another level of versatility to collect three waste streams in one compact unit. The inclusive signage and WRAP labelling ensures minimal cross-contamination.

The Smart-e range of bins were also very popular with exhibition visitors, the bold, bright colours were eye catching and the Smart-e process in which 90% recycled material is used to make the bins can be applied to almost any Leafield product, thus emphasising the recycled nature of the bin for any environment. The Smiley Face Smart-e bin in particular was eliciting lots of smiles and attention from exhibition goers!

As well as launching the Meridian Triple and Smart-e bins at the RWM show, Leafield exhibited their wide selection of premium recycling and litter products for indoor and outdoor use. Award winning favourites such as the 170 litre TwinBin and 140 litre Envirobank, and the classic Heritage litter bin gained as much as attention as the new products.

Finally, Leafield would like to say thank you to those that took the time to visit their stand.

Smart-E bin Exhibits Recycling Credentials LEAFIELD Recycle - 24.7.2012

A new method of producing litter and recycling bins from recycled polymer is becoming a hit with organisations wishing to demonstrate their green credentials in line with Corporate Social Responsibilities.

Manufactured by Leafield Environmental, these Smart-E™ bins are rotationally moulded from 90% recycled MDPE and the result is a unique mottled finish that emphasises the recycled nature of the product.

Bins manufactured from recycled polymer have been available for many years but invariably the choice of colour has been black, black or black. In contrast, the Smart-E bin is both colourful and attractive and highlights the fact that it is made of recycled material.

The Smart-E process utilises the polymer waste stream generated in Leafield’s manufacturing process and bypasses several traditional recycling processes associated with ‘repolymerising’ plastic waste such as recompounding, milling, transport etc., making it more carbon friendly

The material is colour segregated before being chipped into small pellets that form the bulk of the rotational mouding charge. In this way the colour hue of the finished bin can be modified but each bin has its own unique appearance. (There is even a patriotic red, white and blue variant.)

A range of Smart-E bins is available for both outside litter collection and internal recycling.
