Whether you're sprucing up your home or office kitchen, upgrading your outdoor setup, or simply looking for the perfect waste disposal solution, we've got you covered.
Below are some factors to consider when looking for your next bin.
1. How much space do I have?
Before you start browsing for rubbish bins, take a moment to assess your space. Measure the area where you plan to place your bin, taking into consideration any height restrictions, cabinet clearances, or wall placements. Knowing your available space will save you from the hassle of returning an ill-fitting bin.
2. What size bin do I need?
Now that you've got your measurements, it's time to pick the right size. Think about the amount of waste your household/office generates on a regular basis. For a small kitchen or bathroom, a compact bin will do the job. But for larger households/offices or outdoor use, opt for a larger capacity bin to avoid constant emptying.
Bin sizes are measured in litres. We have bins ranging from 3.5 litres to 90 litres.
3. Do I need my bin to be easily portable?
For outdoor use, or if you need a bin that can be moved around easily, choose one with wheels or handles. This makes emptying and cleaning a breeze.
4. Do I need a lid for my rubbish bin?
The lid on your rubbish bin serves a crucial role in keeping odours contained and preventing pests from getting inside. Consider these options:
Swing-Top Lid: Allows for easy access and keeps odours in check. Common in kitchen bins.
Roll-Top: lid rolls back for easy access to the bin and, unlike lift top designs, can be comfortably used beneath a desk.
Pedal Bin: Hands-free operation and ideal for kitchen and bathroom use.
Push-Top Lid: Simple to use and minimizes exposure to trash. Great for office settings.
Sensor Operated: allows contactless, more hygienic waste disposal.
Fire Extinguishing Lid: Used purely for bins where cigarette butts get disposed of in.
5. What material do I need my bin to be made of?
Rubbish bins come in various materials, each with its own set of benefits:
Plastic: Affordable and lightweight, plastic bins are easy to clean and come in various colours and styles. They're perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.
Stainless Steel: Sleek and durable, stainless-steel bins are a stylish choice for modern kitchens. They resist odours and stains and are easy to wipe clean.
Outdoorbins: For your garden or patio, consider weather-resistant materials like galvanized steel or plastic designed to withstand the elements.
6. Is easy cleaning important?
Nobody wants to spend hours cleaning their bin. Look for bins with removable liners or easy-to-clean surfaces.
7. Is the look important?
Finally, choose a rubbish bin that complements your style. Whether you prefer a sleek, modern look or a more traditional design, there's a bin out there to match your taste.
8. What is my budget?
Rubbish bins come in a wide price range. While it's tempting to go for the cheapest option, remember that investing a bit more in a durable, high-quality bin can save you money in the long run.
