On-the-go recycling for green spaces

On-the-go recycling for green spaces  image

This year more than ever, green spaces have been a lifeline to many, but the increased use has resulted to more litter not being recycled. Leafield Environmental have been working closely with local authorities for many years and have recently re-designed their best-selling Heritage Square litter bin to offer an on-the-go recycling solution to keep green spaces clean.

Leafield’s Heritage Square bin has traditionally collected general waste, but due to the increased demand for on-the-go recycling, it is now available to collect mixed recyclables that is clearly identified by WRAP compliant colour coded labels. Its robust double wall structure for ultimate rigidity and durability makes it ideal for all-year round use. Available with a 110-litre liner or a 240-litre wheelie bin.

Leafield’s long standing Envirobank recycling collection is still a firm favourite with its front opening design allowing the waste to be emptied without any lifting. The units are available to collect plastic bottles, aluminium cans, paper cups, paper and mixed recyclables. All featuring WRAP compliant colour coded labels and open, hole, slot or propeller aperture. Available in two sizes; a 140-litre unit or 240-litre unit.

All of Leafield’s standard black bins are made from 100% recycled material*.

Bespoke colours and personalisation of labels are available upon request. Both ranges can be manufactured with an antimicrobial protection to inhibit the growth of microbes by up to 99,9%**.

The Biomaster antimicrobial additive is added during Leafield’s manufacturing process and is dispersed throughout the entire bin. It is durable, it will not wash off and will last its active lifetime. Tested on over 50 different bacteria species in over 2,000 applications. It has been proven to remove over 80% of bacteria in as little as 15 minutes.

* Subject to availability.

** Tested by Europe’s top independent microbiology laboratories to ISO 22196:2011.
