We are excited to announce a new addition to the range of products available through our sister company, Recycling Displays. The Micro Mechanical Recycling Facility, or Micro-MRF, is a highly portable, compact tabletop interactive display, designed to educate and engage members of the public with important recycling processes. It is the first in a new range of products we are developing to build on the success of our existing line, and that include a self-set remit that a portion of our construction materials be renewable or recyclable.
“The entertaining features of the MRF reinforces the message that household waste does not just disappear once it’s in the bin – rubbish still has a lifespan, and needs to be managed responsibly for the sake of the environment.”
The unit is based on our highly successful Mini-MRF recycling interactive, a unit which has consistently proven itself as a valuable educational tool. Based on market research and client feedback, we concluded there was a need for a new model, streamlined to meet ever-increasing demand and to open up the MRF to a broader range of situations – with portability as a primary consideration in the new design.
The Micro-MRF is a highly mobile, economic desktop sorting game. It fits comfortably in the boot of a car, avoiding the cost of van rental, and can be simply and quickly set up by one person, without the need for a team to accompany, install and extract the model from site. The kit includes a box of ‘rubbish’, four waste collection boxes and an air pump to create the experience.
Our clients have experienced success with the larger model in visitor’s centres and other semi-permanent installations, where children and young people are engaged by the contraption-like nature of the MRF, with its hand-cranked conveyor belt, air pump for blasting plastics off the line and magnet for sifting through the rubbish for metals. These entertaining features make the MRFs valuable tools for:
– Creating a clearer picture of which materials are recyclable, and which end up in landfills
– Reinforcing the message that rubbish does not just disappear once it’s in the bin
– Promoting responsible management of household waste for the sake of the environment.
Building on this success, the new Micro-MRF is suited to less permanent situations, opening up the scope to a broader range of markets and applications – not just schools and educational institutions, but corporate events, team bonding exercises, touring exhibitions, recycling events and trade fairs.
