Leco, ecological equipped station designed by Glocal handmade workshopHe looks young and colorful, with a strong playful reference given in the collective memory.

  is a system of containers for separate waste collection, consisting of five elements in low density polyethylene (LDPE) two for the aluminium and glass, in their blue and green colors and two sizes bigger, for paper white and yellow plastic. The four elements themselves in turn on a fifth element, grey in colour, which acts as a base.

The originality of form of Leco is a departure from the classic containers for separate waste collection trying to involve the user through two fundamental aspects: the sympathy of aesthetics and functionality.
Leco is clearly a reference to the "Lego", a worldwide game that increases as the ability to manage small and combine small objects, stimulating creativity.

Hence the desire to create, even if for a sensitive subject such as environmental sustainability, the opportunity to interact with the containers so pleasant surpassing aesthetic and formal obstacles.This vision has led us to the creation of a collector who had the ability to draw attention, in addition to its function, for his ability to solve problems of space and encourage the practice of separate waste collection.

Specifically, each container consists of an outer shell in LDPE with both ends times to the Assembly, which refer to very intuitive ease of interlocking between typical elements of the game "Lego"; While at the front, always in LDPE, it provided a full drawer of metal frame for the accommodation of the bag.
The suggested technology for the production of Leco is the rotational moulding, with adequate arrangements for the housing of inserts needed, as guides for sliding drawer and drowned bolts to fasten the bag frame.

The suitable material for the production of Leco is the low-density polyethylene, which is one of the materials, along with the PET and HDPE, easily recoverable and recyclable material from post-consumer; has an excellent dimensional stability and can be used without problems of fragility and breaking up to 80° C and can be coloured easily. The processability of the LDPE is through different technologies like extrusion, blow-moulding, injection moulding and rotational method as in the case of Leco.

Leco is a new, exciting and colourful to try to improve the ability to spontaneously recycling, contributing daily to the protection of the environment.
