The Evolution of a Recycling Bin

02 March 2016

The Meridian recycling bin from Leafield Environmental was designed in partnership with the University of Greenwich in 2012 and will be displayed on stand 0.227G at the ISSA Amsterdam Show (10-13 May 2016).

It was designed to make recycling easier by separating mixed recyclables and non-recyclable waste at source and using the design of the bin to achieve this, by its interchangeable lids.

The 110 litre version was initially designed to offer two waste streams in one unit with a 70:30 split of mixed recycling and non-recyclables. A triple lid version was quickly introduced and further customised lids added including a liquid reservoir and a 100% lid option was developed to meet individual customer requirements.

A removable liner was developed for the 110 litre version for Bath Spa University, who wanted to adopt a bag less approach. A smaller 87 litre version was then recommended by Coventry University for use in an office environment.

Customers can reconfigure the bins to suit their changing recycling requirements without the need to purchase further bins. The Meridian range has evolved significantly since its introduction, resulting to a flexible waste collection and ‘segregation at source’ solution.

Leafield will also be showcasing their new stacking bin, EnviroStack and best-selling pencil, ladybird and penguin novelty recycling bins.
