Commercial Waste Bins 2021

Posted on:

What are commercial waste bins?

To put it simply, commercial waste bins are bins or containers used to store commercial waste before collection. When used effectively, they can help business owners keep on top of their waste, working towards a more sustainable future.

Do commercial waste bins have other names?

Wheelie bins have lots of different names including;

    Biffa Bins

    Many commercial waste bins are referred to as Biffa Bins. This name can easily be attributed to the waste management company Biffa, who used to provide the vast majority of commercial storage solutions in the UK. Over time, many business owners began referring to this kind of bin as a ‘Biffa Bin’.

    Veolia Bins

    Much like Biffa Bins, the name Veolia Bin grew in popularity due to its association with the brand Veolia.

    Euro Bins or Euro Containers

    Many business owners also refer to Euro bins in relation to commercial waste bins. This kind of bin was typically used as an industrial stacking container but was quickly developed for waste disposal.

What’s the difference between a domestic and commercial bin?

There are several differences between a domestic and commercial waste bin. For example:

Domestic waste bins are designed for personal or household use. As a result, they tend to be smaller in size than commercial waste bins used by businesses.

Some commercial waste bins can store potentially hazardous waste that cannot be disposed of in a domestic waste bin.

Domestic waste bins are typically provided to homeowners by the local council, who also arrange for their collection. Business owners are responsible for sourcing commercial waste bins for their property and ensuring that all waste is safely and securely disposed of.
