Beautiful Recycling Bins for Commercial Fitouts

Design is at the core of Methods values, we believe recycling should be beautiful and out in the open plan design of modern spaces. The colour coded bins are beautiful and effective at helping users sort waste at a glance.

Method is a turnkey waste system that is easily adapted to the needs of a space. They are specified by commercial outfitters and property managers as they are simple and effective at guiding the waste behaviours of people in a space. While complementing the aesthetic of the modern workplace.

Methods bins are admired by designers for their beautiful design and sleek finish with the patented Bag Retainer system. The bins can be used to create flexible recycling stations to meet the needs of your facility, and placed where they will be best utilized, such as an organics bin in the kitchen.

Method was founded by husband and wife team Steven and India Korner when they were driving around New Zealand selling generic bins out of the back of a van. "We consistently saw beautiful spaces with ugly bins hidden away where they are ineffective, building design has come a long way and recycling in the workplace needed to be modernised."

With their signature 60L Office Recycling Bins Method pioneered the concept of Open Plan Recycling, bringing the recycling stations out in the open, changing the way people interact with waste. Visible recycling bins reinforce accountability, which Method found is a key component for progress.

Method have found continued industry attention as their innovative bins change recycling behaviours around the world. Including 3 best design awards from the Designers Institute of New Zealand for the bins, packaging and new website.

Method's award-winning office recycling bins can be found in facilities around the world. Including the Sydney Cricket Ground, University of Melbourne, Qantas, Foster + Partners and many more.
