Copenhagen has a mission and that mission is to become the cleanest city in Europe before 2015. We all know huge goals require enormous measures so Vipp created a mega bin that is constructed 8:1 in scale of their original pedal bin – that’s 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) tall and over 6 feet (2 meters) wide! The mega bin will be on display throughout the city as a reminder to keep Copenhagen clean and green.
Check it out on its journey:
The mega bin weighs 1763.7 lbs. (800 kg) and has a volume of 3,800 liters and has all of the usual features a regular Vipp would have like a pedal, lid, and their logo. Fun fact: This Vipp would hold 25,000 broken bottles or 1,000,000 cigarette butts!
