When’s the last time you took part in a community event? Having a street party or craft fair is great fun, but there’s nothing quite like getting people together to do something proactive that will benefit the neighbourhood long-term. An excellent example is organising a litter-picking event.
We sell wheelie bins to all kinds of customers across the UK. From local authorities in Yorkshire to individual homes in the Cotswolds, the hospitals of Wales to schools across Aberdeenshire － our customers range from individuals who require an extra bin, to organisations in need of hundreds at a time. That’s why we keep our prices low, our delivery fast and our service top-notch.
Some local authorities are halting garden waste collections over the winter. Whether or not this affects your household, it’s always a good time to improve the way you recycle garden waste and food scraps. To help you do it, we've put together some info and tips on making a compost heap and maintaining it throughout the year.
Glass recyling made easy for bars, restaurants, coffee shops, offices and warehouses.
Have you ever thought about what your wheelie bin has to cope with? There’s a good reason why they are solidly built so they last a long time. When you think about it they are outside in all weathers – wind, rain, snow and anything else the great British weather decides to throw in for good measure. They are also designed to hold the stuff we want to get rid of, so they have to be robust and ready for pretty much anything and everything.
Simple steps for keeping your wheelie bin as fresh as a daisy.
Do you remember when we all used to have just the one black bin and nothing else? Life was simple then, as we just had to put all our rubbish into it and that was that. Of course now we are more aware of the need to recycle as much as we can. This has introduced us to the idea of having more than one wheelie bin to handle and use each week.
Have you ever walked along the street on rubbish collection day and held your breath as you walked past the bins or the collection vehicle? You wouldn’t be alone – they can really kick up a stink at times! When you have bin after bin all lined up along the street that odour can become ever more powerful too.
Wheelie bins are often in the news, but usually for all the wrong reasons. From being used to transport stolen goods during robberies, to being melted down to smouldering blobs of plastic around Bonfire Night by disrespectful pyromaniacs, it’s actually quite rare for there not to be an article under Google News when you run a “wheelie bin” search.
Before you recycle, you should make sure to reduce and reuse where possible.
