Commercial Waste Containers

Commercial Wheeled Bins

Our wheeled bins and containers are aesthetically pleasing and come in a range of sizes from 240 litres to 1280 litres capacity. The 660, 1100 and 1280 litre bins are manufactured from pressed steel and sizes upwards of 500 litres have lockable lids that ensure the security of the waste and minimises spillage.

Rubber castors and large handles allow the containers to be easily moved and the low loading height allows staff to store waste with ease.

For further details of this service or any of our other commercial services please contact us.

We are in the process of rolling out a fully compliant waste collection service and are currently only taking on new customers in the City Centre and south.

In the meantime, if you are outside the City Centre, you may find alternative registered waste carriers and brokers on the SEPA directory
