Recycle up to 24,000 cups a year* LEAFIELD Misc - 4.3.2013

Leafield Environmental, the leading designer and manufacturer of recycling bins, has launched a new economy M-T Cup Bin as part of their Envirobin range – holding 500 cups and 7.5 litres of liquid at any one time.

Philip Maddox, Managing Director at Leafield Environmental discusses why they have launched the economy M-T Cup Bin and said: “As a business, we continue to develop our product range for quality and price by listening to our customers and understanding the market place. The new M-T Cup Bin compliments our existing 100 litre Envirocup Bin, offering businesses a smaller unit at a more affordable price without losing its quality.”

Main features:
• Six apertures for collecting cups
• 500 cups can be collected in a single bin
• A central removable liquid aperture with a 7.5 litre capacity
• Long life, durable MDPE construction
• Easy to operate and clean
• The lid is WRAP compliant colour coded to indicate plastic or paper cups (red for plastic and blue for paper)

The liquids reservoir is removed easily for emptying and cleaning and the bin tubes are simply emptied by inverting the bin over an appropriate plastic bin bag. The individual tubes are purposely designed to open out into a common space at the base of the bin in order to make cleaning and rinsing the bin an easy operation.

The product is priced at £75.00 excluding VAT.

*24,000 cups a year is based on holding up to 500 cups a week

Envirobins are “Part of the Furniture” LEAFIELD Recycle - 13.11.2012

As a part of the University of Derby’s £6m transformation of its Britannia Mill site, a new recycling scheme has been initiated, incorporating Leafield Environmental’s new Meridian Envirobin, complemented with desk-top recyclers.

The University formerly tried to segregate recyclables at source but is steadily moving to a two stream, mixed recyclables/general waste arrangement. Being designed to collect two waste streams within a single compact unit, the Meridian Envirobin is reported to have been the ideal choice.

With a large 110 litre capacity, the Meridian Envirobin has a unique facility of being able to capture multiple waste streams in a single bin by having WRAP colour compliant, split lids, accompanied by explanatory graphics.

“We liked the look of the bins immediately and they compliment our dual waste-stream process perfectly,” said Lynn Richards, the University’s Environmental Manager. “ The styling is very contemporary and fits in well as part of the furniture.”

Expecting some resistance to the change, Lynne was pleased to find that the opposite was the case with everyone recognising the importance the University places on driving up recycling rates.
“Moreover I’ve had jealous calls from other sites across the University campus asking when they can expect their new bins!” continued Lynne.

When is a bin not a bin? When it becomes part of the furniture!
