Stainless steel in urban furniture

Sustainability is a key issue for urban planners. New buildings and developments must meet advanced standards set by local and central governments which are designed to ensure that materials are capable of being recycled without damaging the environment and without the need for potentially harmful landfill sites. Stainless steel is one of the sustainable materials that can be used in urban furniture including in transport settings such as bus shelters, subway stations and bike racks.
