Straight to provide bins for LWaRB flat recycling scheme

Container manufacturer Straight has won a contract with the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWaRB) to provide recycling bins for the organisation’s Flats Recycling Programme.

The near-£250,000 agreement will provide flats across London with 1,300 recycling bins and 70,000 kitchen caddies for the collection of food waste.

It is the largest single order for the company’s Steelybins - metal four-wheeled recycling containers - which will be distributed from June.

Straight chief executive Jonathan Straight (pictured) said: “We are very pleased to be working alongside LWaRB on the Flats Recycling Programme to address the problems associated with recycling in flats within the London boroughs. The programme is a significant step in encouraging all households to recycle, and we look forward to other councils across the UK following suit.”

LWaRB announced a £5m Flats Recycling Programme in June last year, with the aim of helping London boroughs to overcome common barriers that affect recycling in flats and high-rise properties.
