240L bin hire & collection service

Part of an effective and efficient waste management system is to only have the amount of storage you require for each waste type. This means a more optimal use of space, and no need to pay for a level of service you don’t need. 

If you generate 4-5 bags of any type of waste between collections, our 240L bin hire will be right for you. And when you sign up to our waste management service, we’ll work with your business to figure out exactly which types and combination of bins you need.  

  • Collection frequency: weekly, or fortnightly

  • Capacity: 240 litres, or about 5 full bags of waste 

  • Lockable lids? No (except special clinical waste bins) 

  • Number of wheels:

240L bin dimensions & weight allowance

240L wheelie bins are 1.08m high, with a width of 0.58m and a depth of 0.72m. They’re easily moveable by one person: just pull the handle towards you to raise the front, and let the two wheels do the hard work. 

240L bin dimensions

The waste type will determine the maximum weight allowance for your 240L bins: 

  • General waste: maximum 15kg 

  • Dry mixed recycling: maximum 10kg 

  • Glass waste: maximum 100kg 

  • Food waste: maximum 100kg 

240L bin hire & collection for:

We provide 240L bins to clients in many industries, including: 

240L bins for takeaways

Takeaways generate lower levels of waste than restaurants, because customers often take some or all of it away with them. 240L bins are great for the waste that is left for your business to deal with. 

240L bins for offices

While an office usually generates lots of paper and cardboard waste, the levels of other waste types like glass and food may be low enough for a 240L wheelie bin to be sufficient storage.  

240L bins for schools

As with an office, a school may generate low enough levels of certain waste types that 240L wheelie bins are a logical part of their waste management plan. 

To find out which type and combination of bins would be the best fit for your business, get in touch with our waste management experts today. 

240L bins for:

240L wheelie bins are ideal for many different waste types (like general and recycling), and have the added benefit of accommodating types that larger bins cannot such as: 

Glass waste

With up to 50kg of glass waste able to be stored in a 240L bin, this is a great solution for businesses that generate glass as part of their overall output. 

Food waste

Proper storage and disposal of food waste is crucial to avoid contamination and keep your premises hygienic, and 240L bins are the ideal storage for this waste type.
