Attitudes towards waste disposal have changed. Waste is something that is unavoidable in modern life. We all produce and dispose of it each and every day, whatever our domestic situation. We are more conscious than ever of the need to recycle, with more and more of us required to pre-sort our waste at home before disposing of it.
Currently many of us improvise by using extra bins, separate bags and boxes or additional containers which all create more domestic clutter. Looking at this situation, Joseph Joseph identified the need for a flexible system that encourages waste separation, without taking up precious kitchen space. Today we need improved separation, greater capacity and maximum flexibility.
Introducing a completely new category for Joseph Joseph, specifically created to cater to the various waste and recycling needs of modern life. The first product in this innovative new category is Totem, a unique range of waste separation and recycling units designed by PearsonLloyd. Occupying the same space as a conventional kitchen bin, Totem offers many more functions without compromising on capacity.
Total capacity 60 litres.
36 Litre General Waste Compartment
Totem 60 has a 36-litre general waste compartment, large enough to accommodate waste from even the busiest kitchen. The removable inner liner incorporates bag-retaining features to fully secure bin liners inside, and breather vents that make removing a full bin liner much easier. Custom-fit bin liners are available for the perfect fit, but Totem will also take standard universal bin liners.
24 Litre Multi-purpose Drawer
The most unique innovation in Totem is the integrated drawer. Designed to offer flexibility of use, this compartment comes with a removable divider that’s perfect for separating different types of recycling. Specially designed hooks around the lip of the drawer mean that two standard carrier bags can also be secured to make emptying easier. The custom-fit bin liners also fit this compartment.
The drawer has multiple uses:
Bag – fit with a single bin liner for waste or mixed recycling.
Sort – fit with two carrier bags for sorting different types of waste or recycling.
Divide – use the divider to separate different types of waste or recycling.
Store – use the drawer to store the food waste caddy or household items.
4 Litre Removable Food Waste Caddy
Totem includes a highly versatile food waste caddy. Specially designed to fit perfectly into either the general waste compartment or the multi-purpose drawer, it’s also stylish enough to leave out on a work surface if you prefer. A bag-retaining ring inside ensures that the compostable liner stays in place and eliminates untidy bag overhang. Conveniently, the lid clips on to the side of the caddy to maximise hygiene when adding food waste. Custom-fit, compostable liners are available for the perfect fit.
Odour Filter Compartment
Designed to help eliminate unpleasant odours and ensure that you don’t need to remove a half-empty bag just because of the smell. The carbon filter is discreetly integrated into the underside of the lid, and is quick and easy to change.
Replacement filters are available separately in packs of two.
Totem features a fingerprint-proof stainless-steel exterior and lid with touch-button release.
Totem can also be easily moved around the home by using the integrated handle on the reverse and wheels on the base, meaning no more scuff marks on the kitchen floor.
