MORE BINS HISTORY:
More Bins evolved from the founders’ voluntary involvement with the Ambient Green Picnic, a one day community, music & arts celebration in Guildford which was growing in popularity. In 1998 very few collection containers for recycling were available for hire, so customised signage was used for material separation on the recycling bins, created at a pre-event workshop. It worked, but it wasn’t a sustainable solution and so the idea of an outdoor, temporary, mobile container for recycling at events was first conceived.
In 2005 Woking Borough Council implemented a residents recycling (plastic wheelie bin) collection system which made most of the forty plus year old, wire galvanised domestic bins, obsolete. More Bins reclaimed hundreds of these 100 litre wire waste bins, (plus a bundle of black plastic bins) and then customised them into individual recycling bins, colour coded with new signage. This became More Bins upcycled solution for festival recycling in arenas and backstage areas. To service the campsites More Bins used one tonne bulk bags reclaimed from numerous local sources, these were spray templated with recyclable materials for separation and pegged out with road pins. More Bins also reused malt bags from Palmers and Ringwood Breweries for the collection and containment of glass across the festival site. Furthermore film canisters from Truprint were handed out as mobile ash trays.
In 2007 More Bins added food waste collection bins to separate organic waste at Festivals, these were once whipping cream buckets used by Fudges Bakery. These bins have also been customised to collect batteries & small electricals.
In 2008 More Bins added a further upcycled solution to their range with the introduction of their bag holder concept. More Bins reclaimed packaging wood frames from And So To Bed for hanging the Vinyl Records to create the bag holder. Vinyl Records, were collected from local Charity Shops and surplus stock from Cargo Records. This simple effective concept was also designed with reclaimed CD’s and, hub caps collected from the streets of Dorset.
More Bins were now supplying a totally upcycled operation and range of collection solutions which supported waste material separation at Festivals and Events.
In 2009 More Bins started stripping and reclaiming the material from broken camp chairs left behind, these have been upcycled into a range of bags by our sister business, Jurabelle.
In 2010 More Bins purchased a Pedi-Cab, a front seated bicycle rickshaw, which was customised into a mobile waste/recycling station for street events.
In 2013 More Bins introduced their new operational equipment, an outdoor, temporary, mobile container for recycling at events. This I.P. Design Protected container is a 1,000 litre capacity, colour coded mobile collection container for collecting Cardboard, Cans, Compostable/Organics, Plastic Bottles and Glass. The system was an immediate success with more efficient set up times, giving ten times the capacity of the waste bins therefore requiring less maintenance and as a dry hire option, reduced cross contamination and cleaner materials separated, and colour coded and signed with information – it says what it does on the bin!
More Bins operation was now a lot more effective and efficient, we could now guarantee high recycling rates on the dry recyclables we collected, we had more time to recover for reuse and our service was more competitive to the mechanical greenwash options available.
In 2017 More Bins added a black bulk bag to the recycle stations for collecting and containing the residual waste, this helped keep the campsites more manageable over the event.
2020 More Bins will be adding a number of upcycled products to support the event industry, we are planning to hire out upcycled street furniture and ash trays, made from our obsolete 100 litre wire bins. We also plan to have some carts for hire upcycled from some old bed frames.
2020 Jurabelle will be active on the festival scene promoting upcycling, connecting people and surplus reusable products and materials.
