Accelerating Recycling Rates for Actavis plc

In just thirty years, Actavis plc has grown from a small research laboratory into one of the world's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers, with revenues in excess of $8 billion. The company's UK headquarters in Barnstaple manufacturers more than 5 billion tablets per year, with the majority going into the British healthcare system.

Actavis use Glasdon's Nexus® 100 Recycling Bins throughout their Barnstaple manufacturing base. Installed in banks with large clear graphics that comply with the English recycling standards prescribed by Defra's WRAP/RecycleNow program, the Nexus® 100 and Nexus® 100 Duo containers have helped Actavis reduce their landfill costs by 60% - a six-figure saving per year.

Nexus® 100 is a best-seller for a reason: it offers the perfect combination of looks and features. Packing 100 litres of recyclable material (equivalent to 30kg of waste paper, 130 drinks cans or 95 plastic bottles) into a slim footprint, the Nexus® 100's wheeled door makes it easy and safe to empty.

Available with a wide choice of aperture colours and graphics for any recycling stream you can think of, we can customise Nexus® 100 recycling containers to meet your exact needs. The Nexus® 100 Duo units (as shown in the photograph taken in the Actavis staff restaurant) collect two segregated recycling streams in a single space-saving unit, creating even more flexibility for your program. The bins supplied to Actavis also include the 8ltr side reservoir pod for collecting excess liquid from the cans, bottles and cups collected by the bins - no more soggy mess at the bottom of the sack. Just in case your users don't completely empty their drink into the reservoir, the Nexus® 100 door has an integrated drip tray to catch spills before they stain your floors.
