Leafield Bins support the Government’s Net Zero Target

Leafield Environmental, the leading UK Manufacturer and Designer of recycling and litter bins have been working in partnership with public and private organisations for over 30 years and have introduced a Closed Loop Recycling Scheme and new sustainable bin solutions to support the Government’s target for the UK to be net zero carbon by 2050.

Leafield are fully committed to offering sustainable solutions to their customers in addition to supplying litter and recycling bins.

Leafield’s Closed Loop Recycling Scheme reclaims old plastic products and reprocesses them into new recycling and litter bins. The unique benefit of this scheme is that the new bins are made from up to 100% recycled plastics, which puts the circular economy at the core of any business. This year, Leafield worked with Bangor University where 900 old recycling bins were collected and reclaimed in the factory into new recycling and litter bins, saving plastic going to landfill.

Leafield’s products are designed and manufactured under one roof by skilled engineers with a strong commitment to improving efficiency and reducing environmental impact.  Leafield’s standard black products are made from up to 100% recycled plastic.

The in-house Leafield design team are dedicated in innovating new bin solutions that are more sustainable for the customer.  An example is launching the new Meridian ‘Bagless’ Recycling bin, that features removable liners, to prevent the need for bin bags, saving thousands going to landfill.

Philip Maddox, Managing Director at Leafield Environmental said:

“Although we have been supplying recycling and litter bins for many years, it is important for us as a company to offer more sustainable solutions that contribute to our customers net zero targets. As we manufacture and design everything in-house, we can offer a Closed Loop Recycling Service reclaiming old bins that would have gone to landfill into new bins. In addition, we can innovate new products that offer more than just recycling waste, and the ‘Bagless’ Meridian is an example of this, where not only is the unit collecting mixed recycling, but its saving thousands of bin bags also going to landfill.”

Philip Maddox, Managing Director at Leafield Environmental concludes:

“We are fully committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations with environmental management systems in place to ensure we are compliant with recognised industry standards. Our sustainable practices were recognised at the Inspire Business Awards, where we won ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ in June 2022. We will continue to work in partnership with our customers supplying our bins as well as offering sustainable solutions to support the Government’s target for the UK to be net zero carbon by 2050.”
