Effective Recycling Stations for Commercial Cleaners

Method is a visible, flexible and beautiful recycling solution that can be found in facilities around the world. Including the Sydney Cricket Ground, University of Melbourne, Qantas, Foster + Partners and many more.

The Method system benefits every person in the waste process of a space, including cleaners. Cleaners spend less time servicing bins with communal stations rather than desk bins and the patented Bag Retainer System makes the bins easy, quick and hygienic to change.

We have partnered with Clean Away in Australia as we moved into Australia as they help facilitate the waste needs of businesses. They specify Method bins to clients as they believe in waste as a resource, and source separated waste assists in maintaining the integrity of the materials due to lower levels of contamination.

Three years of research and development went into the design of Method’s signature 60L Office Recycling bin including holding focus groups, preparing prototypes, and assisting cleaners on night-shifts. The built in bag retainer was inspired by a cleaner who had developed his own system for stopping the bin liner from hanging out, maintaining a sleek finish.

Method bins make recycling simple, the colour coded lids and graphics are visually effective at assisting users to separate waste. Methods 60L Recycling Bins form flexible recycling stations that can be adapted to the needs of your space.

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. They saw businesses that were apathetic about recycling, and those who were trying to recycle but didn’t have the tools to be successful.

With Methods innovative design, bins become a visible statement of your commitment to sustainability, while making users actively consider their recycling behaviour.
