Bins keep on working

Container repair and refurbishment company UK Container Maintenance (UKCM) has provided the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea with a cost-effective solution for its waste containers.

The council, which was looking to avoid replacing its original fleet of 1,100- and 660-litre Eurobins, employed UKCM to recycle more than 100 waste containers that were located on streets and within housing estates.

The solution was to create an aperture in the containers so that bins can be emptied from the reverse and ensure the container’s artwork on the front is kept fresh.

One year on, the containers continue to look respectable across the borough, offering continued recycling.

Emma Elston, co-founder of UKCM, said: “We understand that councils are forever searching for ways to save money and, for a third of the price of replacing a container, UKCM can modify and restore the units to full, like new, working order.”
