Where’s Wybone this month…

March 26, 2019

We’ve seen a few of our bins out and about this month, whether they’ve been spotted by our beady eyed staff or sent to us by our lovely customers.

Rotherham Interchange has recently reopened to the public following a £12 million refurbishment; the work included replacing seating, lighting, internal cladding and new bins of course.

We’ve worked with Rotherham Interchange on their renovation project, manufacturing and supplying Torpedo Triple Recycling Bins with polycarbonate transparent panels. Our Northern Sales Manager Emma went along to the new bus station after it’s grand reopening and spotted the new bins in situ.

Manchester Airport have invested more than £1 billion in a transformation programme to make the airport a leading international gateway. This programme will give the airport a contemporary look as well introducing a new runway pier. We’ve manufactured Torpedo Double Recycling Bins for the airport and received a photograph of our bins ready to be located in the new Pier 1 which will open to the public early April!

We were all excited here at Wybone HQ when we spotted our Eco Cup Recycling Units on the ITV Tonight programme which focused on rubbish and recycling. Our vibrant orange recycling bins, part of the #LeedsByExample campaign were seen in the Trinity Shopping Centre in Leeds, with presenter Helen Skelton-Myer even demonstrating how to use the bin. Our Torpedo Bins make an appearance behind the cup bins… if you’re as enthusiastic as us.

We worked with recycling organisation Paper Round again, this time supplying bespoke Eco Cup Recycling Bins to Green London Met. Paper Round shared the photo of Green London Met’s new recycling bin on social media, as well as introducing a new partnership with James Cropper who will be recycling their disposable cups.

It was a busy week in March for policing organisations; a week-long campaign to raise awareness of knife crime, aimed to encourage the public to surrender their knives and weapons. This initiative showcased a number of knife amnesty bins, including ours!

Officers from the Suffolk Constabulary and the Police and Crime Commissioner shared a photograph on Twitter to introduce a new Knife Amnesty Bin that has been placed in Stowmarket to stop the public from carrying knives.

We also featured in the Weston local newspaper. Avon and Somerset Constabulary have placed a new red Knife Amnesty Bin at the town hall in Weston to encourage the public to dispose of their knives after a 52% increase in knife crime across Avon and Somerset in the space of a year – we hope our Knife Amnesty Bin can help to make a difference in the district. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #KnifeFree!
