The Docklands is recognised as the corporate business centre of Dublin city.
The area is located on both sides of the River Liffey, from the Talbot Memorial Bridge eastwards to the 3Arena, and is home to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre (designed by Daniel Libeskind) and the Convention Centre (Kevin Roche). North and South quays are connected at the heart of the Docklands by the Samuel Beckett Bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava.
The area is populated by some of the world’s largest companies such as Facebook, Google and many others. The blend of original cobble paving and old granite quay walls, along with contemporary architecture, create an environment where heritage and modern living coexist to make it a welcoming space for cosmopolitan corporations such as these.
In 2015, Dublin Docklands Development Authority sent out to tender a call for new street litter bins which would befit this area. Their demands centred around the aesthetic and tactile quality of the product, but equally important were the requirements of Dublin City Council who are responsible for maintaining and emptying the bins.
The s16.2ss stainless steel litter bin was able to satisfy both of these quite different requirements, making it the chosen product.
