‘OPT IN’ for your green bin

Students from Leeds Beckett University approached HESCO with an idea of using our products to create a large sculpture in Hyde Park, Leeds, that would spur people of the city to ‘OPT IN’ and sign up to the Leeds City Council’s green bin scheme.


There are now five large columns constructed from HESCO filled with plastic on display in Leeds in a bid to encourage more students and the public to recycle.


The seven-meter art installation was officially launched and opened on Saturday February 24th by MP for Leeds North West, Alex Sobel.
