Three into One Does Go! Triple Lid Recycling Bin

18 February 2013

At the request of major customers, Leafield Environmental has launched a new triple lid option for its successful Meridian Envirobin.

The initial concept for the unique recycling bin came from a collaboration between Leafield Environmental and the University of Greenwich, the greenest University in the UK according to the green league published exclusively by the Guardian. The Meridian 110 litre Envirobin was first designed to have a 70/30 split lid with the larger aperture being for mixed recyclable waste in the that would encourage students to think twice before choosing the landfill option.

The brief also required a slim bin with a flat back that could be placed against a wall in corridors without causing obstruction but for situations where space is even more restricted, the need for three separate receptacles within the same bin became evident.

The part lids lock together and are WRAP colour compliant. Each waste stream is further identified by labelling and clear graphics on an integral poster. Three waste bags fit neatly into the bin, each secured separately with a wire sack holder.

As John Bailey, Sustainability Projects Officer at the University of Greenwich said, “With the Meridian Envirobin, clearly three into one does go!”
