Meridian: The greener recycling bin from Greenwich
The University of Greenwich in partnership with Leafield Environmental has designed a recycling bin that promotes and facilities recycling in a better way than a conventional one.
The Meridian Envirobin bin (named after the university) is split into 70:30 in favour of recycling, is suitable for corridors and tight spaces and has a changeable sign kit attached to it. Manufactured in the UK using chipped plastic from old bins, the Meridian bin has options for accommodating other waste streams such as liquids and is easy to use, empty and clean too.
