If you have anything you no longer need, chances are you will put it in a rubbish bin! What you may not know though is, the more technical term for these bins is called waste containers. They come in a few different types and not all of them are equals

You of course have your regular wheelie bin which most houses will have been given to store their general everyday house hold waste. These days the world has gotten more “green” and most developed nations actually have 2 to 3 wheelie bins for their recyclables, non recyclables and any natural items like lawn and leaves.

Most general bins are made from either plastic or metal as they are both strong, easy to clean and also waterproof which is important. The standard size holds about 240 litres but this will differ throughout different regions. In Australia for example the recycling bin is smaller than the general waste bin.

However many other various are available such as pet waste containers, kitchen waste and even pharmaceutical waste models.

When it comes to hazardous waste containers however, the range gets extended to medical and chemical waste containers which are a little different. Sometimes you may need to store potentially dangerous solids of liquids in specially made bins. Unfortunately the laws for this scenario can be quite strict requiring you to document and have special notes which are like records. The reason for this is because the right thing needs to be done when storing and disposing of such waste.

If you do require any waste containers its definitely recommended that you do either buy them or choose waste container rental company to supply you. However please ensure you think about the type you need first as not all bins are made for the same scenarios. Also think of the size whether it be large or small and of course do you due research as there are those with lids, those that can fit snugly in filing cabinets which pull out as well as several other models you can buy.

One thing for sure though is, buying your containers online is by far the cheapest, hassle free method of purchase and it comes highly recommended. You’ll also find that the ranges available by far beat anything you will find on the streets.
