Circular Solutions
Closing the loop and bringing solutions in recycling and managing waste

This project tackles the plastic waste problem through innovative and self-sustaining solutions for the communities. Beyond Bins introduces small-scale plastic recycling solutions, at the same time promoting an alternative source of income to the community through the production & re-selling of recycled products.

The Machine

 

This small-scale recycling machines enables users to shred and mould plastic, and consists of the plastic shredder, an extruder, and an injection moulder. Inspired and built by the open-source blueprint of the Precious Plastic Project by Dave Hakkens.

Products

 

 

 The recycled products made are the end result of the shredded plastic. These are made out of 100% plastic waste and are designed based on customised needs. The shredded plastic are heated up in the injection moulder into a specially-designed mould, bringing an end result of beautifully crafted recycled plastic products.

Community

 

 The main beneficiaries are the underserved communities that will be empowered to recycle and produce new products made of plastic waste. Beyond Bins, alongside other community partners, work with those from remote villages with lack of access to recycling facilities, orang asli villages and islands. The communities gain also through educational programmes and awareness to instil a sustainability mindset.

Bigger Picture

The Beyond Bins project set out with a mission to achieve behavioural change and a mindset shift towards sustainability. We made the decision to start by tackling the plastic waste issue which makes up a big part of the overall problem. 

Beyond Bins has a greater goal, which is to tackle sustainability challenges, making the programme applicable across different fields. With Beyond Bins, we aim to spread awareness on the importance of feeding back recyclables into the circular system which is crucial for sustainable development. In the future, we see this work evolving beyond plastic, to tackle other recycling challenges as well. 

At the heart of it, we want to tackle the thorny issue of behavioral change and ignite new ways of living. Ultimately, we want everyone to reimagine our everyday consumption habits and make small but important changes to their lifestyle. We cannot pretend that our planet doesn’t need saving, now more than ever.
