Happy recycling with a smile
07 March 2013
Keele University has recently opened a new £2.9m day nursery school on campus and has installed novelty 'smiley faced' recycling bins from Leafield Environmental in order to promote and teach recycling practices to children from an early age.
The novelty recycling bins come in three sizes: 41, 52 and 62 litres.
Manufactured from durable polyethylene with smooth, hygienic wipe free surfaces, they have WRAP colour compliant, interchangeable recycling lids and clear visual, colour coordinated graphics that encourage recycling with a smile.
'We aim to be one of the most sustainable universities in the UK,' says Huw Evans, Keele University's environmental manager. 'We have increased our recycling rate to 44 per cent over the last two years and hope to reach a 60 per cent rate by 2014. The smiley faced recycling bins at the nursery are ideal for children to use.'
