Article 23 June 2022 We’ve trademarked Bin the Bag® Our innovative Bin the Bag system for separating waste without using single use bin liners is now trademarked, as we continue to be a key player in the fight against climate change. Reducing our waste and single use plastics is fundamental to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2025. Last year we developed an innovative way of removing our single use bin liners in our offices using Bin the Bag®. Bin the Bag® is an internal three-chamber bagless bin system, which separately captures dry mixed recycling, food and general waste without the need for any plastic. We’ve installed our Bin the Bag® system at our own office locations and we’re also trialling it at our client sites. Trademarking the brand logo for Bin the Bag® means we secure the logo design for exclusive use with our clients. It also helps to build our reputation as a key player in the fight against climate change. By bringing to mind positive, powerful messages about Mitie, it can influence the buying decisions of consumers.
