Finsbury Park, London

Prior to trial, we had a fleet of standard street bins installed throughout the park. These bins, due to their low capacity in a high footfall park required frequent servicing. Each time these standard street litter bins were emptied a single use plastic bag was required to replace the full bag removed from the bin. The outdated design of these standard street litter bins featured an open top aperture. Due to the nature of this infinite open access, this provided seagulls and rodents direct entry to these bins to rummage and pilfer litter.

The Solution

Over the past 8 months a trial has been conducted of a fleet of 120 litre and 240 litre BriteBins™ installed across Finsbury Park. These bins have an increase capacity allowing for a greater volume of waste to be collected ahead of servicing. The 240 and 120 litre model holds up to 20 times and 10 times the volume of the standard street bins previously in place. Not only have the BriteBins™ installed increased the volume of waste collected they have reduced all use of single use plastic bags across the park. This is thanks to the standard wheelie bin integrated into each BriteBin™. This has created a reverse vendor process in the park by which the bins are removed by tail truck and returned to the designated waste compound for emptying and replaced with an empty wheelie bin so the bins are always in service for use.

The innovative design of the BriteBin™ units installed featuring a flap opening aperture allows for a cleaner practice of waste disposal. The flap opening allows a direct feed for litter into the unit opposed to a hopper opening, which has been proved to become dirty overtime and regular cleaning to prevent odour or litter jamming in the feed. Further to this, a flap opening unit creates a cleaner touch-less user experience. The flap opening mechanism is operated by the BriteBins™ foot-pedal. The foot-pedal is integrated into the footprint of the bin removing the risk of a trip hazard in a heavy pedestrianised park. The sealed nature of the flap opening BriteBin™ Solar units also prevent birds and vermin gaining entry to the bin.

Customised Options Available

There are a variety of options available when ordering your PEL BriteBin™.

Size Of Unit

The BriteBin™ Solar is available in two sizes. Depending on the volume of litter, customers have a choice of a 120 or 240 litre model.

  • BBS 120ltr D 615 x W 624 x H 1480
  • BBS 240ltr D 760 x W 695 x H 1540

Litter Opening

There are two options for the litter opening. A Hopper which we recommend is cleaned every 2-3 months. Or a Flap opening which is more commonly used as it does not require cleaning. (The size of the litter opening can be customised)

Service Door Location (120 litre Model)

The service door can be located at the front, back or side of the machine. This allows you to place the door where best suits the location of the bin and avoid disruption to the general public.
