Kick-Start the process
Gumdrop is the first bin in the world that is not only designed specifically for the disposal of waste chewing gum but is also made with waste chewing gum. Gumdrop houses a closed-loop recycling process designed to both educate and inspire the public into giving gum a second life.
To help reduce the growing strain on the world’s environment we would like to encourage everyone who chews gum to recycle it. By simply dropping your chewing gum into a Gumdrop bin your small effort will go towards making a huge change.  Putting chewing gum into a standard bin may keep our streets clean, however, it will not be recycled and will end up in a landfill. When used chewing gum is thrown on the floor the repercussions are expansive. Not only does it produce unsightly blots that ruin our landscape and cost a great deal to remove but it also costs us our environment. Not to mention how difficult it is to attempt to remove poorly disposed of chewing gum from your clothes and shoes. The best way to ensure your chewing gum is recycled efficiently and responsibly is to drop it into a Gumdrop. Gumdrop along with its contents of used chewing gum is recycled and processed into new Gumdrop’s which are then redistributed so that the cycle can start again.

Why should I use a Gumdrop?
Gumdrop has proved to reduce chewing gum litter by up to 46% in the first 12 weeks of use and can save as much as £18000 per annum on cleaning bills. It is a great addition to CSR goals and a product that has captured the publics’ imagination. Get started now and lets work together to clean up gum litter inch by inch.
