Method are the makers of visible, flexible and beautiful recycling bins, designed for modern workplaces. The award-winning bins are helping influential businesses around the world recycle more, and waste less. Their award-winning recycling bins can be found in facilities such as Foster + Partners, the Sydney Cricket Ground, Qantas, Canva, Keep Cup, and many more. With four offices around the world, Method are currently selling their innovative bins in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. As well as freighting to other countries on request, having already supplied companies in the US, Singapore and Hong Kong. The colour-coded and ultimately behaviour-changing office recycling bins connect together to form adaptable recycling stations. Co-founders Steven and India Korner saw the need to transform workplace recycling habits while driving around New Zealand selling generic bins. They observed that recycling bins where often an afterthought, hidden away and ineffective, or inconsistent with the office aesthetic. The Korners spent 3 years developing the Method 60L Office Recycling Bin researching workplace waste habits, holding focus groups and even helping cleaners on night shifts. The result is a bin that is functional for every stage of the waste process. Including, Method’s patented Bag Retainer System that holds liners in place and hides them from sight for a beautiful finish. Pioneering the concept of open plan recycling, the bins are designed to be out in the open in the modern workspace and a statement of an organisations commitment to sustainability. Method bins have empowered customers to divert approximately 37 million kilos of waste from landfill in FY2018 alone.
