Curve / storage for empties


'Curve' is a product to store returnable empties which are usually thrown in a conventional rubbish bin. People who depend on collecting empties respectively the proceeds are searching for bottles in those bins. My product is supposed to make this process more hygienic and the person can collect empties in dignity. Besides there is an ecological aspect as there are less bottles thrown away. 'Curve' could be positioned in public areas e.g. on a station forecourt. The material is weatherproof: chrome-plated metal bars which can optionally be colored are fixed in a concrete socket. Appropriate for cans, beer bottles and 1.5l plastic bottles.
