LANGUAGE OF RECYCLING

The cycle of life

Raw Veg Food

Add vegetable or fruit scraps and peels, raw or cooked, and even when rotten can be added into your garden compost bin. Just make them small pieces so they're easier to decompose.

Cigarettes

Stinky cigarette butts are more useful when repurposed into insecticide-resistant. Ash and tobacco are separated out and composted. Filters are extracted for repurposing into toys and furniture.

Sanitary

Whilst reusable sanitary pads can have a lifecycle of several years, the standard sanitary items have been piling landfill for years. However, a process can extracts the super absorbent polymer.

Chewing Gum

A process takes used bubblegum, cleans and purifies it, then mixes it with other recycled plastics to make a strong, durable and material. That nasty splodge is reshaped into welly boots.

Soft Plastics

Low-density Polyethene (LDPE), High-density Polyethene (HDPE) or Polypropylene (PP). An easy way to identify a soft plastic product is scrunch it up and notice it doesn't bounce back.

Our History

Have you ever stood over the recycling bin wondering whether the piece in your hand should go in? Back in 2006, Stephen Corcoran, the inventor of NiftyBins™, was working as an installation artist at the popular Electric Picnic music festival in Ireland. While he was clearing his path by kicking plastic cups and cans out of the way, something remarkable happened…

For the love of trees

Who doesn’t love a tree? This is a learning experience for us all, so implementing changes locally is fundamental to taking back some control over matters which seem to be at a government level.
