Glasdon A Litter Bin like No Other

May 2017

For an island like no other, it has to be Thorpe Park! Situated between Staines-upon-Thames and Chertsey and first opened as a small attraction by Lord Louis Mountbatten in 1979, Thorpe Park now plays host to around 1.8 million visitors each year!

In 1996 their first roller coaster, “X:\ No Way Out” was installed and over the years Thorpe Park has grown into the huge attraction it is today, containing 27 rides, 7 of which are roller coasters. Some of the more well-known attractions include Derren Brown's Ghost Train, SAW - The Ride and The Swarm.

An average of 7500 daily visitors is sure to create lots of litter meaning a waste management strategy is essential. We have recently been in contact with Thorpe Park’s Site Presentation Manager regarding new litter bins for use within the theme park. As a result, they have chosen to purchase a number of our Sherwood litter bins to replace their existing wooden bins.

The Sherwood litter bins were ordered with external ballasts so they could be weighted down, but not permanently fixed to the ground.

Thorpe Park also opted to personalise their order with a plaque mounted onto the front of each bin which displayed the Thorpe Park and Grundon Waste Management logos. We offer a personalisation service for a wide range of our products, to find our more you can use our personalisation guide.
