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.
