Indoor Waste & Recycling Bins

Overview

Prestwick first partnered with Bates College in 2015 to design bins for the campus food service areas. After receiving their initial order, Bates College reached out with a unique need. They wanted a waste and recycle bin that had a funnel to help collect liquids.

In conjunction with the Bates’ Custodial Supervisor and Sustainability Coordinator, Prestwick’s Engineering and Design team created a waste and recycle bin that would allow users to discard of their leftover liquids. The unique stream was designed to be a part of their standard bin, but the circle opening would connect to a funnel that emptied into a bucket inside of the bin, allowing for quick and clean servicing of the bin.

"The Max-R bins that we have started using at Bates College have been beyond fantastic. They are hands-down the best bins I have ever seen. Max-R worked with us to develop a system that is clear, concise, and helps our students and staff do the right thing. The Max-R bins have also allowed us to begin a campus-wide compost pickup, which allows us to keep one more aspect of the waste stream from going into the landfill."
