The most commonly used recycling bin is the wheely bin, perfect for when the volume of recycling materials is small. These bins can be colour-coded for each type of recyclable material and can be placed in convenient locations for easy sorting-at-source.
Skips come in a range of sizes and are perfect if you have a large volume of recycling, or if you want to store smaller recycling bails. Skip bins are also used for collecting recyclable industrial metals.
Roro bins are a larger alternative to our normal skips. They’re useful for clearance projects or where ample space is available, and for this reason are widely used by industrial customers who need to dispose of a high volume of waste – from demolition and construction, through to multi-story clear-outs and ongoing manufacturing waste.
Skids are only used for bailed recyclable materials, where the volume is too large for them to be taken off-site loose.
