Focus on Universities

Glasdon are a leading UK manufacturer and supplier of sustainable solutions for universities. We specialise in designing products which help to create and enhance quality environments across campus, be it in the classroom or lecture theatre, out on the university grounds or in student accommodation. Our extensive range includes cycle storage, smoking shelters, waste management products, seating solutions and more, for use around your university.

All of the products in this section have been selected as the preferred options of Facilities and Estate Managers across the UK. We have a wealth of experience providing customised recycling bins for universities. Recycling stations are essential for managing waste and should be readily available to students and faculty members.

Students are now more environmentally focused than ever, so why not inspire them to make sustainable choices by siting multi-stream recycling stations around campus. These recycling stations provide waste management solutions to compartmentalise many different types of recyclable waste, including paper, plastic bottles, used drinks cans, batteries, ink cartridges, mixed recyclables and more. We can even customise your recycling bins to create bespoke recycling stations to suit the objectives of your university’s recycling programme via our personalisation service.

Our university litter bins are designed to perfectly compliment university landscapes and have been constructed to resist effects of adverse weather conditions, corrosion, and vandalism. The highly popular Glasdon Jubilee™ 240 Litter Bin utilises traditional styling and is available in multiple colours to best suit your location. Four large apertures ensure that this litter bin is accessible from every angle to encourage use and decrease littering.

Encouraging cycle to class schemes can be a great way of promoting sustainability on campus. Our range of cycle shelters and bike racks provide a protected space for students to secure their bikes, whilst our specially designed cycle bollards help to maximise safety. For large campuses or higher-risk areas, our secure cycle compounds with lockable entrances can safely store up to 20 bikes. View our Guide to Specifying Cycle Parking to find out which solution is best for you.

We also supply a selection of hard-wearing cigarette bins including both wall mounted and free-standing ashtrays to help create a clean and safer smoking area. Site alongside a smoking shelter or canopy to provide weather protection for smokers all year-round.
