Heart of the community

ArtCycle MB, is a not for profit valuable material resource, local storage and educational community hub. Using data we can show the potential for waste and society. Empowering a new generation with stewardship and shaping attitudes towards waste, through educating.


Community hub, Storage and Creative Workshops

All under one roof, our NiftyBins™  infrastructure, the Agents Of Change and Bailing Bone Yard interface enable a holistic education applied through creative workshops and mixed media engagement. These ingredients are key to behaviour changes, which provide a circular economy for society.


How it works

Pledge your clean materials to a local ArtCycle MB hub. The material is recovered and recorded via an App. In exchange you will be rewarded with credits and know you’re helping community projects.

Separating materials at their source enables waste to be reduced. Schools art projects and the UKs luxury homeware and fashion remake industry are in big demand for clean reusable single-stream materials. ArtCycle MB can help supply.

No such thing as general waste. Education becomes key to our relationship with rubbish and closing the recycling loop. Materials are reshaped and reused in innovative and beautiful ways, by exploring their potential and value through our unique craft workshops.

Recycling is confusing and the current system is broken. The success of material collection recovery starts with a tried and tested lightweight infrastructure. NiftyBins™ single-stream means no materials are deliberately destroyed or contaminated.


Pledge your waste

ArtCycle MB started life in the music festival world and growing every year. We know that being your environment starts with art. And even though recycling efforts in your community may be lacking, the education of working with materials inspires and is the catalyst for change. 

By engaging with the community on two levels: by separating at source ArtCycle MB will primarily stop precious materials being destroyed. Bring your clean materials to us and we’ll do the rest. Secondly we will change behaviours by educating through practical workshops offering skills from professionals.

How it works

Recycling Roadshow 2024

An exciting ArtCycle MB will drive the only education recycling system through collaboration of creative art to a town near you. A series of creative, practical workshops (powered by solar panel) will be facilitated in a tent by Agents Of Change made up of: local artists, festival sculptors, designers, and craft entrepreneurs.

Our roadshow team have an abundance of knowledge and will inspire and empower boys and girls of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to connect through the power of art. Our studies show that art provokes an understanding of the value of materials through creation and play, enabling life skills developed through curiosity and experimentation.
