The Gumdrop’s circumference is 48cm
The Gumdrop can hold up to 500 pieces of chewing gum
Roughly around 70 pieces of chewing gum go into making one Gumdrop as well as our magic ingredients to make it into Gum-tec
One full Gumdrop can make three new Gumdrops
We can recycle all types of gum
The Gumdrops fill up at different rates depending on the location of them and the amount of people that pass them. Anything from 5 days to 5 months
The Gumdrop only comes in Gumdrop pink, this is for two reasons. Firstly we want everyone to recognise the bins as a place to recycle chewing gum, keeping the bright pink continuity will help us to do this. Secondly if we were to make the bins in different colours we risk messing with the recycling process which could result in the process becoming hugely expensive and ultimately unviable.
Yes the Gumdrops have a space on the side that can display logos or other sponsorship banners.
Unfortunately it is inevitable that the Gumdrops will be used for types of litter other than chewed gum, for example, cigarette butts, half eaten chocolate bars, tickets. In anticipation of this issue, it is possible to carry out a sorting process to separate the chewing gum from any stray litter before recycling.
The Gumdrops are 100% waterproof
The Gumdrops generally don’t fill with water due to the position of the hole. There is also a drainage hole at the bottom in the event rain water or any liquid gets into the Gumdrop.
Gumdrop can be secured to any flat or circular surface. A custom made bracket is used for wall mountings and a metal zip tie isused for posts.
The mechanism is very simple so that you can unclip them and then re-clip a new one up with ease
