Method – an alternative to “built in bins”

Company: Method Recycling

Method saw a problem with workplace recycling, staff were frustrated with ugly bins and the main solution offered was recycling and waste bins built into kitchen cabinetry. Companies were trying to encourage staff to recycle by providing separate bins, yet they were hiding them away.

Method felt a better looking bin in the open plan space would allow staff to see each other recycling and help recycling be part of the corporate culture; showing the organisation promoting sustainability.

Method bins are flexible, companies choose to put the bins where they need them. If their fitout has a space that opens out for functions or training they can move bins into the space for the day. If they need to change the office layout because they shift teams around or hired more staff, the bins can be moved too. Single paper bins can be placed in copy areas and they still tie in with a consistent recycling system through out the office. Two years ago when The Wellington Council decided glass would be collected separately from recycling…no problem just connect another glass bin to your Method Station.

Method – Open plan recycling for the modern office

Company: Method Recycling

Corporate workplaces are changing, companies place a higher value on collaboration, innovation and culture. Sustainability ranks high on the agenda and office place recycling forms an important part of many companies’ sustainability goals.

Method saw an opportunity to re-think office place recycling, developing an open-plan recycling station that engages individual users to consciously sort their waste and encourages an organisation-wide culture of recycling.

Rather than a wheelie bin in the corner; Method wanted a bin to fit in with the aesthetic of the modern office. After two years of research and development method created a bin that organisations are proud to have in their workspace –www.methodrecycling.com/design-story
