Method Twenty


Designed to match standards across Australia the following streams are currently available. Method’s Sixty Litre bins are available in open or touch (closed) lids. We recommend touch lids for streams that are likely to produce odours or attract fruit flies, like organics or landfill.

If your facility is collecting anything outside of this we can create a custom stream like coffee cups, e-waste or clothing.

Adaptable to Your Needs

Introduce the bins you need where you need them, Method recommends:

  • One 4 – 5 bin station per 30 users
  • Stations should be around a 10-second walk from desks
  • Removal of ALL individual bins to drive recycling rates and reduces contamination
  • Placing additional bins where recyclables are produced eg. a paper bin next to the printer or organics in the kitchen
  • Adapting the bin placement based on user feedback or main waste generation areas

Open plan Recycling encourages behaviour change within the user, providing a positive response & increasing overall education around recycling.

Sixty Litre Bin Connectors

The Connectors are engineered to lock bins in place side-by-side, back-to-back or to a wall.

Available in 2 or 3 bin connectors or use an expansion kit for larger stations. 

Features & Benefits:

  • They’re particularly useful in high traffic areas, and save your cleaning crew time moving bins back into place.
  • Provides the right gap for cleaners changing the liners, enabling efficiency and speed to service
  • One school reported that after implementing the Connectors they reduced their movement & removal of bins by 100%
  • Used to secure vertical signage to the bins for better diversion


Custom Signage / Education Support

  • Signage that connects to the bins to increase understanding for users and cleaning staff
  • Provides communication and education about what can and can’t go in each stream
  • Ability to attach tenants and facilities  logo’s on the left hand/middle side to add a personal touch
  • By reducing contamination, waste costs will come down
  • A large public shopping centre saw the following contamination statistics:

No Signs –  60% Contamination       Vertical Sign  – 15% Contamination
