Another great year at the LARAC Conference!

October 16, 2019

We’ve recently returned from a busy few days at the LARAC Conference & Celebration Awards at the Hilton in Birmingham, showcasing a handful of our litter and recycling bins to local authorities.

LARAC is the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee that represents local authority views in the waste and recycling sector, run by an executive of 20 serving local authority waste management officers.

We loved chatting to an array of visitors over the two days; facilities managers, buyers and MP’s in local authorities to name a few. Our limited edition 50th year, gold chocolate bars went down a treat!

We were excited to showcase our new smart waste solution, Mr. Fill at the event – we even brought along Mr. Fill’s Managing Director, Theo Kik to help us answer any technical questions. This solar powered compactor is manufactured in the Netherlands and monitored using the Smart City Manager application, this detects fill levels to alert the user when the unit needs emptying.

Cup recycling is one of the biggest recycling issues in the UK, with only 1 in 4 cups recycled. Disposable cups are mostly sent to landfill; however only a handful of companies are now able to recycle them if they are collected correctly. We can help you get a step in the right direction by providing an innovative unit that separates lids, cups and liquid waste.

We brought our Deluxe Cup Recycling Bin to the event; shaped like a takeaway cup, we think this unit is eye-catching and will encourage users to recycle. Manufactured from galvanised steel with a rolled circular body and vacuum formed durable plastic lid – six internal tubes stack the cups and lids, with a separate liquid collection tube for any waste. When the lid is lifted, the tubes open at the bottom allowing the cups to fall directly into the waste bag.

Our Food Waste Wheelie Bin Covers are predominantly favoured by councils, to create a communal recycling point and to hide unsightly wheelie bins. We brought this bin along to the event to showcase to councils who may be looking to increase their food waste collections.

Manufactured from 2mm hot dipped galvanised steel, this stylish cover features a slanted lid, designed to allow rainwater to run off and prevent any rubbish from being left on top of the unit. A lift up flap on the lid helps to contain unwanted odours, with a stainless steel handle that makes opening easy and hygienic.

If you didn’t get the chance to speak to us at the event and would like to meet with the team to see a sample, feel free to give us a call on 01226 352333 or send us an email to
