Putting Landfill on Ice

The National Ice Centre in Nottingham is Britain's first twin Olympic-sized rink in the UK. The facility includes the Nottingham Arena, and the main rink can seat 10,000 spectators. The centre is home to the Nottingham Panthers ice hockey team, and was officially opened by Jayne Torvill in April 2000.

The Ice Centre recently purchased six banks of Nexus 140 Recycling Bins for the collection of plastics and general waste. The units are located in public concourses, and have already increased the centre's recycling rate by a significant amount.

Lee Chadburn, Facilities Manager, said: "Our focus at The National Ice Centre / Capital FM Arena has recently concentrated on increasing the quantities of recyclable waste streams. We have achieved real success on our 'back of house' separation. Our next challenge was to attempt to engage the public attending the venue for an event to separate general waste from plastic (we go through over 300,000 plastic pint containers a year).

"The recycling container we chose had to look good, be of a high quality, be obvious which bin to use, and be easy for staff to empty and replenish quickly. After consulting with Glasdon, we chose the Nexus 140. We are very happy with the final product and the effect this has had on the public separating waste on our behalf for recycling."

For more information on the Nexus 140 Recycling Bin, or any of our extensive range of indoor and outdoor recycling products, please call (01253) 600 410, email enquiries@glasdon-uk.co.uk, or use the Live Chat facility on this website.
