Litter Bins
Are all your steel bins made from galvanised steel?
Yes, all our steel bins are made from galvanised steel sheet which complies to the BS EN 10346: 2015 grade BX51D+Z275 which offers outstanding corrosion resistance. 
Do you supply spare parts for litter bins e.g., keys, locks, ashtrays, liners?
Yes, we can supply replacement parts for all our litter bins, we just need to know which bin type you have from an old order number or photograph, we can then confirm the spare parts required and despatch these on an overnight postal/parcel carrier service.
Do you offer refurbishment on litter bins?
Yes, we can provide a refurbishment cost for both our cast iron and steel litter bins. Refurbishing your existing bins not only prolongs their life but also saves you money and benefits the environment. Please send a photograph of the bin(s) that you require refurbishing to [email protected], for a competitive quotation.
Can I add a logo on my litter bin?
All our litter bins can be branded with your customer logo. From a high adhesive vinyl or polycarbonate logo to the laser cutting option on all steel bins. All we require is your logo in a high-resolution format and we can do the rest.
When selecting different options/features is it possible to see what my bin will look like?
Yes, we have our own in-house graphic design department and can provide a visual illustration to show you what the bin will look like. Whether it is to incorporate your customer logo/show the bin in a different colour or to provide a completely bespoke design service. We can do it all. 
How does the Bait base work?
Our bait base is an optional extra available on most of our litter bin range. The bin is manufactured with a chamber at the base with a hinged lid, this is accessible once the liner is removed. The poison bait is then placed and the rodent enters the chamber via access holes and takes the poison back to the nest. 
What is meant by litre size?
Inside all bins is a galvanised steel liner; the litre size is the capacity inside the liner which holds your waste. Our most popular liner size is 120litre, but we also offer a range from 40litre to 180litre capacity liners with the option of a bespoke liner to suit your requirements.

What is the difference between Grade 304 and Grade 316 stainless steel?
Grade 304 is used as standard on our range of stainless-steel products. It is ideal for where there is less risk of contamination from sodium chloride (e.g., seaside towns). Grade 316 stainless steel is more suited for use in waterside and coastal areas, where there is a higher level of sodium chloride in the air.
