Recycling bin goes bagless

Recycling bin goes bagless

Plastic bags and sacks are increasingly becoming an issue whether in the context of supermarkets or in waste disposal and, as a result, customers are starting to request bagless options for their waste and recycling bins. In response, Leafield Environmental has introduced a bagless option for its Meridian Triple Envirobin. The ingenious solution incorporates a system of plastic liners, one for each lid aperture.

A 28 litre liner takes the landfill waste while a further 63.5 litre liner accommodates the recyclables. Within this latter liner resides a 10 litre food caddy that sits beneath the food waste lift lid. The easily removed liners are provided with convenient lifting handles and are manufactured from rot proof HDPE, which makes them easy to rinse out.

The Meridian bins have a black or grey-white body as standard and lids come in WRAP approved colours with accompanying labels. Optional integrated WRAP signage will also assist the user in selecting the appropriate waste stream and thereby reduce cross contamination.
