Wheelie Bin Contractors
General waste management would be much more difficult if we didn’t have the humble wheelie bin. These come in all shapes and sizes from the small ones we use at home to the larger, industrial bins that can take a vast amount of waste. Wheelie bins are made from hard, durable plastic or steel and are designed to hold particular types of waste from general paper and card right through to hazardous and construction waste.
Wheelie bin contractors work with local authorities, local businesses and other commercial enterprises including supermarkets and factories to provide suitable containers for their needs. All businesses have a duty of care under present legislation to store and deal with their waste appropriately. That means having an appropriate container for the particular type of waste they handle whether that’s paper and card produced in an office or the food waste that a supermarket or restaurant needs to dispose of. General and specialist wheelie bins are available depending on the circumstances.
Trade waste containers can vary from smaller 120 litre bins to bigger 1,000 litre ones. There are also much bigger containers available that can be loaded directly onto roll on roll off trucks which are capable of holding a large amount of waste of different types. The biggest waste containers actually have built-in compactors that can reduce the space that rubbish such as paper or garden cuttings take up.
Choosing the Right Wheelie Bin for Your Business
Undertaking an audit and looking at how much waste you produce and how often can help you decide what size of wheelie bin you need. Most companies will have a number of different bins for various types of waste.
Other options you need to consider is whether you want wheelie bins that are more secure and can be locked or are happy for them with lids that open easily. Size is important and your local wheelie bin contractor will be able to advise you and even undertake a quick audit for your business to tailor their provision to your exact needs.
One reason why you might need to hire a wheelie bin contractor is if you suddenly have an increase in the amount of waste you are producing. This could include if you are moving office or are having a clear out of a property or if you have taken on a contract which means you are producing more waste than usual. Most wheelie bin services offer short and long term contracts with containers of varying sizes to meet most needs.
Finding a Wheelie Bin Contractor
Many companies that offer a general waste collection service will also provide wheelie bins for hire. Finding the right one for your business is a matter of checking their credentials and making sure that they are an accredited waste management company. Special care needs to be taken if your business handles something like hazardous waste which needs to provide protection to those passing by or working within the vicinity.
