A new waste disposal solution that supports medical professionals to accurately dispose of all hospital waste, in a clean, safe and easy way. Allowing them to get on with what really matters, supporting their local communities and saving lives.

Strategy & Design

The aim of this project was to find an innovative recycling solution for the Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health board to improve recycling within their hospitals, with a focus on the operating theatres. The approach was to first make recycling as accessible as possible, with a clean and simple one-stop bin system with clear and concise information about what materials can be disposed of into each bin. Second, to make this new bin system stand out in a busy environment the 'Medicycle' brand was applied to the system, giving the solution its own identity, something that medical staff can relate to and take ownership of.


A clear and concise interior solution for all medical bins. Tall, colour-coded wall displays working in unison with the corresponding bin giving straight-forward instruction on what materials can be placed into that specific bin. Saving medical professionals precious time while enabling them to achieve accurate waste disposal.

The Medicycle App.  

With the new bin system in place, it only seemed natural to create a platform for the staff at Cwm Taf Morgannwg, the Medicycle app. A quick and simple way to ensure all medical professionals receive the same core training on the hospital waste system and expectations. A place to learn and test their knowledge.
