School meal time clear-ups can be fun and efficient

Anything that encourages children to clear away their school meals is to be applauded. Often the dining room has to be used afterwards for lessons or meetings, and staff donít have the time for lengthy clearing up, so the more the children can do the better.
E & R Moffatís Versiclear waste trolley is designed to make clearing away simple, easy and fun for school children Ė so it actually gets done. The brightly coloured Versiclear waste trolley is very child-friendly. It has separate sections for beakers, waste, cutlery and trays, all labelled with clear, bold graphics.
Everything can be emptied though large accessible circular openings in the top of the unit. All surfaces are wipe clean and its tough, durable stainless steel construction is well able to stand up to the everyday rigours of school life. Braked casters mean it can be wheeled quickly and easily away after use.
"We developed the design in conjunction with local education authorities paying special attention to hygiene and ease of use," says Gary Allen of Moffat. "They have found that these trolleys, with their simple and fun layout, really do encourage the children to dispose of their lunch trays properly."
School children arenít all the same height so Moffat produces the trolleys in two levels Ė a 750mm model for juniors and a 900mm model for seniors. Both can be finished in a wide range of colours and eye-catching designs such as dinosaurs, space scenes and cartoon characters.
