ORBIS Corporation, a North American manufacturer of plastic bins and carts for the collection of recyclables and organics, has enhanced their Kitchen Collector for more convenient, user-friendly kitchen food scrap collection. Among the design enhancements on the NPL 390 Kitchen Collector are new features that minimize potential messes during scrap collection and emptying. The bin’s wide opening accommodates standard plate sizes, making it easier to dispose of after-meal scraps. The NPL 390 Kitchen Collector has been designed with a wider snap latch to ensure a secure seal.
In 2009, ORBIS Corporation purchased Norseman Environmental Products, the original large-scale distributor and manufacturer of the Earth Machine backyard composter and an experienced Canadian based manufacturer and supplier of recycling bins, organic waste carts and bins, dumpsters, rain barrels and accessories. The now familiar Earth Machine backyard composter currently boasts over 2.5 million units in use, in more than 3,500 communities worldwide.
Orbis Corporation to Reveal Enhanced Organic Waste Collection Designs at Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo
ORBIS Corporation, a North American manufacturer of plastic bins and carts for the collection of recyclables and organics, will be at the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo in Toronto in November to demonstrate for customers, recycling professionals and media the numerous enhancements they’ve made to their popular Kitchen Collector and GreenBin2 organic waste collection containers.
- Green Bin2
The Green Bin2 is ideal for efficient curbside collection of organic waste. The 12-gallon cart is designed for easy storage and collector of food scraps to help municipalities encourage more community residents to divert food waste from landfills.
- Next Generation Kitchen Collector
The contoured Kitchen Collector2 is designed for convenient kitchen scrap collection. The contemporary design fits in any décor, and is a mess-free, odor-free and easy-to-use scrap container that is easily transported from the counter to outdoor compost piles or curbside containers.
The City of Portland, Oregon generates nearly 30,000 tons of waste each year. Estimates are that one-third (by weight) of its total waste, formerly landfilled, was actually fully compostable kitchen waste and food scraps. The City made it a goal to increase its recycling rate to at least 75 percent of its total waste – but they needed a way to get there.
Orbis’ new Green Bin2 has been introduced in response to rising demand for a smaller, more appropriately sized container to collect source-separated organics in residential and commercial applications. The 12-gallon cart is designed for easy storage and collection of food scraps, to help municipalities encourage community residents to divert more food waste from landfills.
ORBIS Corporation, a leading manufacturer of plastic recycling bins, organic waste carts, compost bins and rain barrels, has named its Rexdale, Ontario facility as its plant of the year.
ORBIS unveiled three new products at Waste Expo 2011, including their Norseman Environmental brand Commercial Recycling Container, Hybrid Commercial Containers (plastic dumpsters) and Recycling Product Accessories series (bin dollies, floating bin rails and bin bungees).
This line of Hybrid Commercial Containers is the latest in Orbis’ Norseman Environmental brand of products. These wheeled, plastic containers range in capacity from two to eight yards and are ideal for the collection of organic waste, garbage or recyclables.
