Recycling bins are usually easy to distinguish from other bins as they have a distinctive colour. However, a symbol is an additional requirement especially for colour blind people.

A symbol / label can be produced using a Vinyl Cutter such as a ‘Sticker Machine’ or a ‘Craftrobo’. These machines are controlled by a computer and operate similar to a printer. Essentially they cut out shapes in adhesive vinyl. The vinyl can then be stuck onto almost any surface.
 
The diagram shown opposite shows a typical vinyl cutter. The cutter moves left and right as the vinyl moves through the machine. These machines come in a range of sizes starting usually at A5 size up to much larger than A1 size.
