Case Study:

Glasgow City Council

The Story
We were successful in our bid to supply the recycling units to meet Glasgow’s tender requirements. These recycling units were powder coated in a non-standard colour to match existing recycling units already in place, making them instantly recognisable to the public.

We are able to adapt designs to suit our customers’ needs due to our in-house design and manufacturing capabilities. We can take a standard unit and customise it with artwork, aperture styles and even add a concrete base to eliminate the need to ground fix, just like we did for Glasgow. specific colour, we can do that or if you want us to design a new feature for a recycling unit, we can do that. Our motto is, if you don’t ask you don’t get. Why don’t you challenge us!

What Happened
Glasgow City Council were thrilled with the results when the products arrived.

The recycling units were launched on the 18th June, coinciding perfectly with ‘Recycling Week’ and raising the profile and awareness of the scheme.

Some Thoughts
“By increasing the number of ‘recycling on the go units’ within the city centre and introducing the units within parks, Glasgow City Council is providing further opportunities for residents to recycle while away from the home. This will hopefully increase awareness of the Councils recycling services and assist the Council in diverting more material away from landfill”
