Weather-proof litter bins for Newbiggin by the Sea

Weather-proof litter bins for Newbiggin by the Sea

Broxap designed, manufactured and installed a collection of fifty litter bins for Newbiggin by the Sea.

Newbiggin by the Sea is a coastal town in Northumberland and its location means that the environment there can often succumb to greater environmental damage due to the salty sea air, as well as the damp atmosphere. As such, in order to prolong the life expectancy of the litter bins they were constructed using galvanised steel.

The bins chosen were the Derby Standard, and were kept very traditional using the standard black and gold colour scheme. They were finished with D1036 Architectural Paint as it gives good exterior durability and colour retention. To again help reduce the effects of the coastal location.

The client chose to add a bespoke polycarbonate logo which depicted the name of the town and its heritage.

They also decided to add a ‘Self-Closing Ash Tray’, providing an ash tray encourages the correct disposal of cigarette litter, something that is a growing problem especially on the coast; The MCSUK have estimated that a total of 3.2 million cigarette butts can be found on beaches each year.
