How Much Waste Do You Wheelie Produce?

With local councils reducing bin collections and expanding the time between collections have you thought about investing in an additional wheelie bin to help combat an overload of waste?

What waste is most commonly thrown in our wheelie bins?

  • The UK produces 400 million tonnes of waste every year. Around 30 million tonnes of this come from our wheelie bins in our household waste.
  • Our wheelie bins typically hold 120 to 360 litres of rubbish, with 240 litres being the most common. (BBC)
  • Paper and card make up about a fifth of the typical household waste. About half of this consists of newspapers and magazines. (CB environmental)
  • At present only 70% of cans and 57% plastic bottles used each year are recycled. (Coca Cola)
  • There is an EU target for the UK to recycle at least 50% of household waste by 2020!

If you’re on the hunt for an extra or replacement wheelie to help you manage your waste that bit better we have launched a brand new range of wheelie bins for you!

Our 80 Litre wheelie bin is available in Green, Charcoal Grey, Yellow, Blue, Red and Brown, and it’s manufactured and tested to EN840 (European standard for emptying and handling safety). Its made from virgin material only which gives it greater strength and durability compared to wheelies made from mixed material. It also contains additives that make it resistant to UV rays and extremes in temperature (important for the British weather!)

If you’re eco-conscious, you’ll be happy to know that these bins are 100% recyclable at the end of their life.

Our 120 Litre wheelie bin is available in Green, Charcoal Grey, Yellow,  Blue, Red and Brown and it’s manufactured and tested to EN840 (European standard for emptying and handling safety).

It’s UV resistant and can withstand extremes of temperature, and it has a solid steel galvanised wheel axle with strong reinforced wheels.

This bin is manufactured and tested to EN840 (European standard for emptying and handling safety). It’s made from virgin materials which make it infinitely stronger and more durable than bins made from mixed materials. Its solid steel galvanised wheel axle and heavy duty wheels make it easy to manoeuvre even when it’s at full capacity.
