A variety of street furniture and litter and recycling bins designed by Broxap Street Furniture can be found on campus at the University of Leeds.
The most recent project came as management took steps to improve the campus exterior. All pre-existing powder coated bins were replaced with Broxap’s stainless steel recycling units and litter bins for a shiny new look.
Broxap designed, manufactured and installed a total of 45 recycling units and litter bins.
Of these, 20 were the Stainless Steel Derby Quad Recycling Unit, with the remaining 25 being the Derby Standard Litter Bin – Stainless Steel.
The product change was driven by a new campus wide smoking ban.
Existing bins had in-built ash trays which the university wanted to remove as part of its enforcement of the ban.
The new litter and recycling bins were manufactured using grade 316 stainless steel, making for a high specification product which is both robust and durable.
Adorned with the University of Leeds crest, the litter bins incorporate detailed laser cutting with coloured backing plates to display both text and imagery.
In addition to the laser cut elements, Broxap also created bespoke vinyl graphics, which portrayed a general waste “bag”. These bespoke vinyl elements were placed on the Stainless Steel Derby Litter Bin, which was a “general waste only” bin.
The additional option of a “rodent bait base” features discreetly at the base of the litter bin while the introduction of recycling bins has also helped to improve the university’s green footprint too.
An earlier partnership with trade customer Travis Perkins saw four Broxap benches delivered to the university site at the School of Psychology.
This order was made up of the Desford I bench, with a galvanised and powder coated steel frame and Iroko slat seat.
