With innovative underground and surface storage systems for multiple waste streams, metroSTOR has one of the most comprehensive range of waste and recycling storage solutions in the world.
Manufactured in the UK, metroSTOR is a brand of Streetspace and its ‘safer, cleaner, greener’ design methodology, delivers product solutions that help make our neighbourhoods safer and more pleasant places to live. metroSTOR bin stores are designed to secure waste and recycling safely, preventing bin fires from spreading. They increase recycling rates with improved resident participation, reduce waste collections by creating additional storage capacity within the same footprint. Fitted into new development and as retrofit, they reduce costly fly-tipping with the side-waste and associated negative issues from vermin, litter and antisocial behaviour.
metroSTOR bin stores, bin room buildings, bin room dividers and bin screens give specifiers the ability to configure bespoke solutions for new-build projects using a proven product system that removes uncertainty and the potential for hidden costs during procurement, installation and aftercare. Design processes are facilitated with a library of CAD models available for download in 2D and 3D formats.
Streetspace manufactures outdoor storage and shelter products for many applications including cycle parking, mobility scooter charging units, secure buildings and plant enclosures. Our experience can help make your daily challenges in the design, specification and installation of outdoor storage, that little bit easier.

Local Authorities using metroSTOR
At metroSTOR, we passionately believe in wise investment improving the quality of life for residents and becoming a successful generator of positive social, economic and environmental outcomes. Inadequate storage facilities invariably have a negative impact on the physical and mental well-being of residents, whether this be the daily trip to the bin-store with its overflowing bins, vermin and anti-social elements or having nowhere to store buggies or bicycles safely. These are the challenges metroSTOR products resolve every day.
Increasing Food Waste Recycling With metroSTOR FX Bin Housings
Separate food waste collection from households and businesses is expected to be made mandatory in England by 2023 as part of the Government commitment under its Resources and Waste Management Strategy.
Around 50% of local councils in the UK already collect food waste separately or as part of their green waste collection, but some 2.3Mt of household-produced food waste goes to landfill every year. The harmful methane gas emitted as food waste breaks down can be used to generate energy in an anaerobic digester plant and the current volumes going to landfill could potentially generate up to 2.7TWh of green energy.
From early space-planning exercises through to detailed design, metroSTOR provides Specifiers with the tools to ensure that they achieve attractive and compliant storage solutions for both recycling and waste containers and cycles within the optimum footprint, on-time and on-budget.
The metroSTOR team is committed to helping our customers find the optimum storage solution for any and every project in this rapidly-evolving world, where we need to adapt quickly to meet the challenges facing the natural environment and even humanity itself.
We combine this commitment with many years of experience on the ground in some of the most challenging urban environments, developing a range of outdoor storage solutions that are not only robust and dependable but attractively styled.
Technical information, dimensions, product geometry for metroSTOR products are available for download as 3D CAD blocks in most formats including BIM models and Revit files. Many can be accessed through NBS Plus and the NBS National BIM Library.
Closing refuse chutes to reduce fire risk in high rise buildings
Andrea Tidy, Caretaking and Concierge Manager, London Borough of Hounslow explains why effective resident communication was essential when closing refuse chutes on high rise buildings in the London Borough of Hounslow. All chutes were decommissioned and replaced with metroSTOR bin housings located externally to form a waste and recycling hubs in accessible locations outside each block. Residents have reported a more pleasant the environment within the blocks without the odour and litter, the caretakers work has reduced and recycling volume has increased massively.
