The Mini Bin may be only 13 centimetres tall, however this small unit is playing a big role in helping Change Leaders and Waste Educators to improve engagement with staff and communities in a number of major recycling projects.
The Mini Bin’s design mirrors a roadside Wheelie Bin, with an opening lid and working back wheels.
The standard units are available with a black base and coloured lid in the Australian standard waste colours, including Landfill, Recycling, Paper and Organics.
Many leading organisations are implementing centralised recycling stations, which require individuals to transport their own waste from their desk, and then separate it into the various recycling streams. The organisational benefits of such programs in terms of improved recycling yield, reduced waste management and cleaning costs can be considerable, however initially it can be a big change for employees.
The Mini Bin has been used successfully to help assist individuals through such a transition providing a positive focus and overcoming some of their objections to change. Provided to users, the Mini Bin can be used to help collect small desk waste such as lolly and food wrappers for later diversion and is also a fun way to store stationary items such as pens and paper clips.
In an educational context the Mini Bins provide a fun novelty item, perfect for demonstrations, recycling games, and as a giveaway.
Which Recycling Streams should you choose?
Red is the Australian Standard colour for Landfill and so this bright red Mini Bin is a great way to promote effective recycling.
The worlds resources are limited. Sending items to Landfill limits the reuse of precious resources, and also creates environmental risks given the toxins, micro-plastics and gases associated with Landfill sites, which can escape into the wider environment. The aim of sustainability programs should be to minimise Landfill streams, and in leading organisations Landfill is eliminated with conscious sustainable ordering practices as well as recycling program.
