Ecobin has changed the recycling game forever
Ecobin is a sustainable business based in Australia that is revolutionising the way Australians deal with waste.
We've done this by creating a range of innovative recycling bins. Ecobin is a pioneer in the field of sustainability and has been actively helping to foster and grow a culture of environmental responsibility in Australia since 2008.
By creating a simple, highly-visible, colour-coded system for different streams of waste, Ecobin CEO & Founder John Engelander gives us the ability to separate different streams of waste, reducing landfill as much as possible.
So, let's take a look at how at Ecobin we continue to work to revolutionise recycling bins and how we deal with our waste in Australia.
The need for recycling bins
Recycling bins are essential due to the increasing waste produced by Australians. As a country, Australia has a high waste production rate, and a significant amount of this waste ends up in landfill.
Shockingly, the average Australian produces about 2,000kg of waste per year.
The good news is we can work together to significantly reduce this waste, by separating our waste and disposing of it using appropriate recycling facilities.
The end game with any recycling bin system is to limit what ends up in landfill and all of the associated problems that can cause.
The problem with traditional rubbish bins
Traditional rubbish bins don't allow us to separate the different types of waste produced in Australia. This makes it difficult for individuals to separate and then dispose of their waste in an environmentally responsible manner. Also, traditional rubbish bins don't promote recycling and sustainability.
The innovation of Ecobin
Ecobin has created a range of recycling bins for the different types of waste produced in Australia. Each bin is colour coded, so it's immediately obvious what it's to be used for. Ecobin's recycling bin range includes:
- Green Ecobin - organic
- Blue Ecobin - paper and cardboard
- Purple Ecobin - glass
- Red Ecobin - landfill
The impact of Ecobin
Ecobin has had a significant impact on the way Australians deal with their waste, and has helped to continue the conversation around environmental responsibility by promoting recycling and sustainability. We've made it easier for individuals and businesses to dispose of their waste in an environmentally responsible manner, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.
