nevRwaste National Bin Network Launch Event In Sept 2013 a launch event was held for the NBN (National Bin Network), with attendees including representatives from nevRwaste, the Packaging Stewardship Forum, Local Government and Draffin Street Furniture.
Thanks to the $200,000 partnership between the North East Regional Waste Management Group (NevRwaste) and the National Bin Network improved recycling for residents and visitors in North East Victoria has become a reality. Through the funding the provision of Away From Home recycling infrastructure is currently being rolled our across the North East Region.
The initiative is part of the National Bin Network (NBN) a $100 million, 5 year industry funded plan to increase recycling and reduce litter nationally. NevRwaste’s delivery of the NBN in North East Victoria is a great example of the beverage industry, packaging suppliers, local government, business and the community working together to enable world class packaging recycling and a significant reduction in litter.
At the beginning of the year NevRwaste coordinated one of Victoria’s largest local government bin infrastructure tenders. The Tender was awarded to Draffin Street Furniture, to produce and deliver over 125 new waste and recycling bin surrounds for the Member Councils in North East Victoria.
Draffin worked together with both nevRwaste and the individual councils to work out exact specifications, detailed delivery schedules and delivery details. Draffin Street Furniture then went to work on manufacturing and delivering the entire project over a 3 month timeframe.
Draffin Custom Design
Draffin Street Furniture worked with nevRwaste, and individually with each council where needed, to detail specific designs that met each councils specific needs. Utilising 3D cad allowed our experienced designers to communicate intent and accurately detail for manufacture.
