About the Metropolitan Recycling Bin

The Metropolitan Recycling Bin is manufactured from galvanised steel, featuring a lift up lid, two internal polythene liners and the option of a plinth style ground fixing to allow easy removal of units if required.

This bin was designed in collaboration with City of Westminster Council & Veolia, they required a unit that was robust & heavy duty, while also being easy to empty & unobtrusive in heavy footfall areas. The lift up lid gives access to both waste stream collections (and ashtray collection if chosen) at the same time, the lightweight polythene liners mean each section can be lifted in & out easily and swiftly, All this equals a rapid emptying process.

Another feature they required was a bin that wouldn’t impede foot traffic along Oxford street. So we designed the bin to have curved ends to ease movement around the unit, and a slimline footprint, being only 360mm deep. This means the units can fit comfortably either against the side of walkways, or parallel to foot traffic without being an obstacle for the general public.

This bin can be customised with your choice of our standard waste streams, and can be powder coated in any of our standard RAL colours. If you would like to personalise it with your own logo or lasercut lettering, get in touch with our sales department.

  • How is this bin emptied?

    The lift up lid is unlocked with a slam lock to the front using a standard T-Key, the lid is fitted with a heavy duty gas strut to assist in opening and soften the closing. Once the lid is opened the the polythene liner can be lifted out using the handles at the top, there is also a handle moulded into the liner at the midway point to further assist with lifting. Once the liners have been emptied and placed back in the bin, simply push the lid closed and the lock will re-engage automatically.

  • Can I customise this bin?

    This large capacity bin comes with two waste streams to segregate waste and recycling. Choose from our standard options to customise your bin depending on the waste you choose to collect or your recycling targets and we’ll do the rest. Specially shaped apertures help the user to identify what waste should be deposited and optional artwork can be used to promote recycling. Choose from the standard, large general waste aperture; London Underground aperture for mixed recycling, the slot for paper / magazines and cardboard recycling or the circular aperture for cans and plastic bottles.

    An ashtray can be fitted to the centre of the bin to ensure that those areas where smoking is permitted can be kept clean and tidy of cigarette ends. This deters members of the public from stubbing out their cigarettes on the bins, which can be unsightly. Alternatively, a stubber plate can be fitted.

  • How is this bin fitted?

    The Metropolitan bin has 4 x ground fixing holes to the base to be secured in place usinf RAWL Bolts. Alternatively you can select the plinth option, with which you can simply bolt the plinth into place and and slot the bin on top, tightening the bolts at the base secures the unit in place. This option also means the bins can be removed if required.

  • Where should this bin be placed?

    The Metropolitan bin is perfect for busy high streets & heavy footfall areas. The easy emptying process makes it ideal for areas where it may be difficult to get large waste collection vehicles through, the bin can be emptied out and easily carried to the collection vehicle.
