Kitchener streetscape revitalization The Molok Team features Molok® containers is growing! King Street in downtown Kitchener, Ontario has undergone a complete makeover in the past few years. The new streetscape features a flexible, pedestrian-friendly design. And lining the street are M-Cityscapes for both garbage and recycling. deep-collection Forty Molok® containers were installed, along with 20 moveable surface-mount units. Previously garbage pick-up was required seven days a week, but since installation of Molok® containers, only 3 pick-ups a week are needed. The Molok® containers are intended for use by both pedestrians and businesses without rear access to waste disposal. The colour and shape of the units blends nicely with the other urban design elements on King Street. The oval shaped units take up less space on the street and even on the hottest of summer days, the Molok containers are odour free. They keep the new street clean, helping to ensure downtown is a place where residents, investors and shoppers want to be.

City of Burlington receives award In January, the City of Burlington received the Protecting Tomorrow Today award from the Ontario Parks Association at its annual conference. The award was for bringing recycling to the City’s parks and green spaces. Burlington has installed 63 waste and recycling stations in its parks, using Molok® containers. With the new system they expect to divert approximately 22,400 kg of recyclables this year alone. In 2009, three stations were installed as a pilot project. These stations proved to reduce labour costs and use of equipment, since they have needed to be serviced only twice a year. Molok® containers are helping the City of Burlington to increase waste diversion while reducing emissions and collection costs.

Have fun with framing! Recycled Plastic Framing 16 new colours have been added to the standard selection of recycled plastic framing. With so many colours to choose from, Molok® containers can really coordinate with your brand, like this orange M-Grease at an A&W in Kitchener, Ontario.
