Hundreds of Wybone litter bins rejuvenate York city centre

April 27, 2018

We’re proud to announce that we have won the tender to supply single and double capacity litter bins and dog waste bins to the City of York Council!

The council went out to tender earlier this year, as part of a waste management rejuvenation programme across the city which included the replacement of a large percentage of all litter bins and dog waste bins currently installed.

We proposed our MLB Eco range, which features the same modern cut corner design as our flagship MLB, with new fold-down apertures to offer significant cost efficiencies. Each bin offers a slightly smaller footprint than the standard MLB but with the same level of capacity.

This range of litter bins met the tender requirements and we were awarded the contract! As a result, the council will be ordering 800 MLB Eco Litter Bins in double and single capacities and over 300 Dog Waste Bins with Lift Up Lids, which are required in phases throughout the year.

The MLB Eco Litter Bin is purpose designed using efficient and economical manufacturing techniques to enable cost savings that can be passed directly to our customers.

Manufactured from the same premium galvanised steel, which is expertly primed, cured and powder coated to offer superior durability and excellent corrosion resistance.

Wherever possible we will work with our customers to implement changes to satisfy their individual needs. Our MLB Eco’s come with a 5mm steel base as standard for ground fixing, York Council requested 10mm bases on the units to make them more secure. We also adapted the design to fit bird flaps on these units as the council were facing issues of animals getting into the bins in the busy city centre.

We are working with the council at the moment to adapt their dog waste bins with new brackets to fit the posts they currently have installed.

We have a longstanding relationship with York and we couldn’t be happier to be working with them once again! We’ll be working towards the next phase of the contract over the forthcoming months.
