Gumdrop is the first bin in the world that is not only designed specifically for the disposal of waste chewing gum, but is also made with waste chewing gum. Gumdrop houses a closed loop recycling process designed to both educate and inspire the public into giving gum a second life.
To help reduce the growing strain on the world’s environment we would like to encourage everyone who chews gum to recycle it. By simply dropping your chewing gum into a Gumdrop bin your small effort will go towards making a huge change. Putting chewing gum into a standard bin may keep our streets clean, however it will not be recycled and will end up in landfill. When used chewing gum is thrown on the floor the repercussions are expansive. Not only does it produce unsightly blots that ruin our landscape and cost a great deal to remove but it also costs us our environment. Not to mention how difficult it is to attempt to remove poorly disposed of chewing gum from your clothes and shoes. The best way to ensure your chewing gum is recycled efficiently and responsibly, is to drop it into a Gumdrop. Gumdrop along with its contents of used chewing gum is recycled and processed into new Gumdrop’s which are then redistributed, so that the the cycle can start again.
Gumdrop has proved to reduce chewing gum litter by up to 46% in the first 12 weeks of use, and can save as much as £6000 per annum on cleaning bills. It is a great addition to CSR goals and a product that has captured the publics’ imagination. Get started now and lets work together to clean up gum litter inch by inch.
If you are unsure as to how many Gumdrops you may need and would like to test an area first before signing up for our minimum 12 month contract, we offer a Two Month Trial Pack of Gumdrops. If you would like more information on The Trial Pack as well as pricing please e-mail us at email@example.com.
If you would like to take up one of our Gumdrop contracts we work out how many Gumdrop Bin locations you may need and how quickly they change over. For example 12 month contract, with 15 Gumdrop Bin locations that change over 4 times a year. We would then work out how many Gumdrop Bin Packs you would need over the year. Each pack comes with a return and recycle bag, this is for your full Gumdrop Bins that we will collect a week after your delivery of new Gumdrop Bins. If you would like to request an early collection you can by e-mailing us at Imfull@gumdropltd.com to request your free collection.
We also offer great packages for Schools, Colleges and Universities. To find out more e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Gumdrops can be wall or post mounted with the fixings that we supply. Gumdrops love places with high footfall and where there is a change in action, for instance:
Entrances, exits, car parks, toilets, walkways, near other recycling stations, smoking areas etc.
Our Gumdrops are generally pretty versatile little pods and can be placed wherever you think necessary, however we do advise that you try to make sure the pods are visible and accessible in order to help encourage people to use them.
We find that every location is different. We have Gumdrops that fill every five days and others that take two months to fill. What we do say is that our Gumdrops like to take care of themselves and keep their self-hygiene in check, because of this we ask that the Gumdrops aren’t left out any longer than three months. This way we can keep our brand fresh, and the Gumdrop can keep his vanity in check, making the Gumdrop constantly appealing for the public to use.
We have partnered with Keep Britain Tidy. As part of this partnership Keep Britain Tidy have devised a survey that all our customers can use to find out if the Gumdrops are doing their job. The survey allows you to simply and efficiently work out whether there is a percentage decrease in chewing gum litter, a money saving or a time saving on cleaning.
