MGB success at Birmingham

Latest News

In early 2014 MGB Plastics, the UK’s largest manufacturer of wheeled bins was awarded the prestigious contract to rollout a full suite of 180L, 240L & 360L wheeled bins & distribute caddies to the whole City of Birmingham. MGB were delighted with the award after a very competitive Europe wide Tender process.

The project will involve the production, distribution & project management of around 1 million bins & caddies across the whole of the UK’s 2nd largest city over the next 2 years. The project is to be split into 4 distinct & manageable project phases. The City of Birmingham had no wheeled bins prior to this contract award, & the rollout will enable the council to dramatically increase rates of recycling & reduce landfill.

MGB have forged a successful & professional working relationship with the council based on regular planning & implementation meetings. MGB have successfully flexed to meet the requirements of the council & worked with them to develop solutions including database management & RFID tag scanning software/ hardware. MGB worked together with the council to schedule in stock to the councils delivery hub, & meticulously planned the subsequent professional stock handling & distribution on the first phase to the residents of the City. Phase 1 has just been completed on time & to the full satisfaction of the council & importantly its residents.

MGB Plastics General Manager Ross Schofield added;

I’m delighted with the tender award after hot competition from across the whole of Europe, & we’re looking forwards to executing the largest wheeled bin production & distribution project that has ever happened in the UK. We’re pleased the council elected to buy British bins that will be produced using the latest in highly efficient production technology

MGB can confirm that the above contract will not interfere with any other projects or top up lead times due to our huge manufacturing flexibility & capacity.
