What is your product?
The Mini Street, one of the flagship products from Taylor’s Urban Solutions range, is a sleek two-wheeled waste container housing unit for food waste and recycling. Designed for integration into urban environments, the Mini Street aims to boost recycling levels by increasing public engagement through contemporary design.
How does it work?
A standard two-wheeled 240- or 360-litre container is located inside the housing, and materials are fed into the bins through various apertures. The food waste aperture has been designed to minimise smell and mess.
The Mini Street was created to hide the standard two-wheeled bins and bring waste management ‘front of house’ rather than hiding it in a traditional bin room.
Where would it ideally be used?
Because of its size, the Mini Street can be used almost anywhere, from residential streets and inner-city centres to events and concerts. Its safe design and security options mean it is the perfect choice of container housing for high-risk areas where public property often gets vandalised.
How is it different?
The Mini Street is a durable double-skinned rotomoulded unit. It offers a discrete and compact option for those looking for a subtle bin style.
What benefits does it offer?
Apart from its durability, the unit is available with a variety of apertures and can be produced with different fixing options.
Where has it been used?
The Mini Street is new to the market, with the first models expected to hit the streets this month. There has already been a huge amount of interest in the housing, and we expect it to be as popular as the Taylor Street Unit.
The cost varies depending on what options the customer chooses. But Taylor works hard to ensure that the price remains competitive and provides good value for money.
What about maintenance?
The Mini Street requires no major maintenance.
What is its life span?
The housing will last upwards of five years, based on Taylor’s care and maintenance guidelines. The company also offers a refurbishment programme that makes it look as good as new.
How is it future-proofed?
The apertures can be redesigned and changed because they are inserts, and this allows Taylor to keep up with the changing demands of the market. The company has a dedicated in-house R&D department that is continuously working to improve the product portfolio in order to meet the demands of a changing market.
Any future applications?
Taylor is looking into the possibility of using the Mini Street for shredding paper.
It is also examining the inclusion of a wi-fi point within the units or incorporating a sensor to check the level of waste in the internal bin. This will eliminate the problems associated with overfull bins.
