Working closely with Plymouth Community Homesto resolve issues around fly-tipping on the Abbey Court Estate, the metroSTOR team identified refuse container lids as a barrier to residents disposing of their waste and recycling correctly.  As a consequence, significant amounts of side waste were regularly accumulating around the bin containers leading to an undesirable impact on the neighbourhood and an increasing fire load.

metroSTOR PBM Bin Housings remove the need to lift bin lids with the wheeled container stored within the housing in the open position. Since installing the units around the Abbey Court Estate, the buildup of sidewaste has dramatically reduced and residents are able to take pride in keeping their community again.

Plymouth Community Homes, Sarah French, commented: “I’m really pleased with how effective the installation has been with the areas remaining tidy all week. The metroSTOR units look fantastic and have significantly reduced issues that the flats were having with fly-tipping and side waste.”

The metroSTOR team is proud to have been able to help another Community Housing Provider achieve safer homes, better neighbourhoods, and progress towards a cleaner world!
