Egbert Taylor is helping South Ayrshire Council to improve recycling levels after rolling out a series of improvements across 1,200 of its 1,100-litre bins.
The council has incorporated three Egbert Taylor solutions including the T-Lock, the Lid-in-Lid and aperture restrictor plate, all of which have been introduced to increase the quality of the waste and the amount that is recycled.
Lid-in-Lid is a small and lightweight lid built into the traditional Taylor Continental lid. It prevents users from opening the main lid and throwing waste into the unit via the smaller lid.
To reduce contamination further, the council has opted for Egbert Taylor’s double T-Lock system on each side of the lid.
The aperture restrictor plate can be custom made to suit each recyclate type, and makes it difficult for users to deposit waste larger than the aperture size.
The rollout began in September 2018 and is due to be completed by April 2019.
