While the recycling and waste industry is primarily about logistics, Banks, Bins and Containers are crucial for the transport of material. Metal thicknesses, hinge details and loading points are all crucial aspects of larger containers as are the performance of locking bars and clips. Competition is fierce in the bin market with suppliers keen to promote their own wares and there are now increasing supplies of bins made in the UK. One bin ‘fashion’ at present, is ‘on-the-go’ which involves placing recycling bins on the streets or in shopping centres to provide more opportunity for the public to recycle away from home. In part, this is driven by the need to capture more aluminium drink cans.
