How quickly will a Gumdrop fill up?

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

What other colours does the Gumdrop come in?

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.

Is it possible to put logos on the bins?

Yes the Gumdrops have a space on the side that can display logos or other sponsorship banners.

What happens if the Gumdrop is contaminated with other types of litter?

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.

Is the Gumdrop waterproof?

The Gumdrops are 100% waterproof

When it rains do the Gumdrops fill with water?

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.

How is the Gumdrop secured and what type of surface can it be attached to?

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.

How do you install/deinstall the bins?

The mechanism is very simple so that you can unclip them and then re-clip a new one up with ease
