(Re) Cycling at Ride-On

Here at Binit, we love to work with customers who share our values and circular economy mission. I have a passion for both cycling and recycling so I couldn’t think of a better organisation to work with than Ride-On, the Exeter Quay-based circular economy cycling charity.

Ride-On and Binit

At its core, Ride-On’s mission is to get more people cycling more often. From its little workshop in Exeter, Will and the team at Ride-On have refurbished and sold a stunning 5,439 bikes to date. Their skilled mechanics, including many volunteers work tirelessly to match pre-loved bikes with a new owner. And it doesn’t stop there; Ride-On’s volunteers love to pass on their knowledge and skills to the general public, running BYOB (bring your own bike) sessions where they will show you how to fix and maintain your pride and joy.

Ride-On have recycled 5,439 bikes

Their passion doesn’t stop at cycling, though. Every single bicycle and component that passes through Ride-On is either reconditioned and used on a bike, kept for use in future, or sent to a local metal merchant for recycling. As a result of this commitment, they produce a tiny quantity of general waste; indeed, they receive small collections only once per fortnight!

There’s no underestimating the impact of this charity. I’ve used their workshop on three separate occasions to service my bikes, and just last month I bought an expertly reconditioned bike. Since, I’ve cycled more than ever before; Ride-On has played a big part in keeping my passion for cycling alive.

binit boosts the south-west circular economy by joining the keykeg return network

Exeter’s Binit Launch Empty-KeyKeg Collections Across the Region to Further Improve Hospitality-Industry Sustainability

EXETER, DEVON. Tuesday, 29 November 2022Recycling expert Binit promotes waste as a valuable ‘resource in the wrong place’, which the Binit team then help South-West businesses return to the right place: the circular economy. To support these sustainability ambitions, Binit is now rolling out empty-KeyKeg collections from its base in Clyst Honiton, near Exeter, as well as arranging convenient drop-off points across the region.

KeyKegs are beer, wine and other beverage Kegs produced by OneCircle that are sustainable and designed for circularity; once empty, they can be returned for processing to recover the actual raw materials used to produce new KeyKegs. By returning all their empty KeyKegs through Binit, hospitality professionals from Bristol to Devon, Somerset to Cornwall, and everywhere in between, can help protect the environment. As more empty Kegs are collected, the amount of recycled material in each new KeyKeg will steadily increase, which conserves precious natural resources.

Binit does more than help industry ‘waste nothing’; it thinks beyond the bin to offer customers a unique, optimised service and consultancy, helping them better understand their waste-management profile. Tracking waste through ongoing audits also brings customer net-zero emissions within reach.

Binit is well-positioned in the recycling market to meet the growing need for smart waste-management solutions that maximise sustainability and strengthen the circular economy. The empty-KeyKeg return partnership with OneCircle, for example, responds to ongoing requests from pubs, bars, breweries and other hospitality businesses for KeyKeg closed-loop recycling in the South West.

Philippa Roberts, Co-founder and CEO, Binit: “Binit believes a circular economy is the only way to bring about a shared, prosperous future that is not damaging to the planet. We aim to keep materials circulating at their highest value for as long as possible and this means getting them back into the right supply chain. Our partnership with KeyKeg in the South West does just that.”

Binit minimises its carbon footprint by using other businesses’ vehicles to collect empty Kegs – it has no fleet of its own. It then assembles, crushes and bundles the empty Kegs into bales for OneCircle to collect. OneCircle shreds, separates and sorts the different plastics on an automatic recycling line to recover the raw materials. As much circular material as possible is used to produce new KeyKeg parts, while the remainder is recycled for other uses.

zero waste awards

Binit scored a fantastic 4* in the Zero Waste Awards run by under the category for Waste and Recycling. The awards were assessed by how we carry out the following: Waste Prevention, Reuse, Recycling & Composting and Energy Recovery.

Binit are a next generation tech-led waste and recycling company. We operate on an Uber-model where we own the bins and use the existing vehicle network to reduce vehicle movement in cities. We keep streets tidy from bags of waste with our communal bin stores and have a web-based app where customers can monitor the fullness of their bins.

In collaboration with InExeter, Binit deliver carbon-neutral collections for small WEEE items to businesses in their district. By providing this service we have increased accessibility and awareness for businesses to recycle their used electrical goods and request pick-ups on demand, with as little as 24 hours’ notice for over four years. 600+ businesses are entitled to four free WEEE bag collections per year. Items are collected from businesses and delivered to a WEEE bulking collection point in the city centre, reducing vehicle movement. The collection and deliveries are fulfilled by Binit partner, Co-Delivery, an electric cargo bike delivery service which emits zero emissions.

With one-off clearances, if there are usable furniture, fabric, or other materials, we offer them to our not-for profit customers or organisations first before choosing to recycle. All of the furniture in the Binit office comes from office clearances which we have done in the past.

Binit actively encourage customers to have segregated recycling in order to retain the value of materials to be recycled. In July, Binit’s recycling rate was 49%. We currently offer recycling for food waste, WEEE, card, paper, mixed recycling, glass, plastic and tins and TetraPak. We are also the exclusive South West partners for KeyKeg for KeyKeg recycling.

All of our food waste are sent to anaerobic digesters and any non-recyclable waste goes to energy from waste plants that feed energy back to the grid. We do not send anything to landfill. If you would like to know more, do email us at or give us a ring at 01392 247035.
