Detailed information on Cardboard Dump Bins
Corrugated cardboard dump bins – available in custom sizes, designs, and print – are a great option for promoting products in retail stores.
Due to their relatively low cost, they are also the perfect solution for seasonal sales campaigns and events. This allows for different designs and variations – for various key selling times throughout the year – to be manufactured at cost-effective prices.
Other common uses for cardboard dump bins are to help with the awareness of newly launched products, boosting sales of slow moving lines, clearance of old stock or to provide a prime location for seasonal items that may only be on sale for a few weeks / months.
Their free-standing design allows complete flexibility with regards to their placement, meaning the promotional dump bins can be positioned where they are likely to be most effective.
Whilst usually near the point of sale, they can be easily moved should your requirements change. This means that you can be reactive to how your customers behave and implement the best sales strategy.
Besides the obvious benefit of increasing sales, retail dump bins also offer a prominent branding and awareness opportunity for your business as well.
Being manufactured from high quality corrugated cardboard (most commonly a white B-flute), your branding, logos, graphics and key messages can be easily be added to your chosen design. This provides a consistent appearance alongside your product packaging and other POS stands / displays).
Ease of use to increase adoption rates
Dump bins, as well as aiding sales, are also easy to use and quick to setup.
As with other forms of POS, such as counter top units and FSDUs, dump bins are supplied flat packed to either your own retail outlets or to third party locations. This means that the transit (and indeed storage) costs are minimised.
They can then be easily assembled by staff at the individual stores, without the need for training or having had past experience.
This ease of use also ensures a consistent appearance across all stores that they feature in
The reverse of this is also true, in that the dump bins can be easily collapsed at the end of the relevant promotions / sales period. This means that they can be stored (taking up minimal space) until they are needed again.
Alternatively, if they are for a “one off” event or product launch, their corrugated cardboard construction means they can be easily recycled.

Common questions about Cardboard Dump Bins
If you are looking to use dump bins for the first time – or even to switch suppliers of these – it can raise a number of questions.
The below section highlights some of the key questions that are frequently asked but, if your query has not been addressed, please get in touch with a member of the GWP team.
What size / styles of dump bins are available?
Available in a wide variety of designs and sizes (tailored either to your stock requirements or the available floor space within the retail environment) a team of designers experienced in creating Point of Sale that converts into sales can advise on the best solution for your specific requirements.
Should I print my dump bins?
Printed dump bins will, on the whole, prove much more successful than unbranded ones. Clever use of the opportunity that print provides will not only catch consumers’ attention and boost sales in the short term, but the increased brand recognition can be a platform to creating loyal customers and providing repeat sales too.
What types of printing can I have on my retail POS?
There are various print options available, the suitability of which will depend on your budget, product, and brand positioning. Single colour silk screen or flexographic printing can be a low-cost option for lower value products or stock clearance applications. At the other end of the scale, full colour litho-laminated print can provide photo quality graphics. This high-quality finish and appearance are ideal for new product launches, higher value items and also allows for exceptional consistency across all of your branded packaging / collateral.
Is cardboard a suitable material for dump bins?
Cardboard is the perfect material for dump bins for a number of reasons. Firstly, it can be easily printed. Secondly, it is robust enough to withstand high traffic areas of your store. Thirdly, it can allow for flat pack designs that enable low cost shipping to your retail outlets. And finally, its cost ensures that it can be used for short lived promotions and product launches (whilst being suitable as semi-permanent fixture too). Alternatively, for exterior use (e.g. garden centres) or heavy-duty applications, it is possible to manufacture dump bins from Correx® too.
Where should I locate dump bins in store?
Retail dump bins (along with FSDUs and pallet displays) work well in a number of locations in store. Anywhere with free floor space and high traffic of consumers is a good idea, although places where impulse purchases are likely to occur – such as checkouts – can also drive sales (although CTUs should be considered for this). They can also be used for cross selling, for example packs of golf balls being positioned next to golf clubs or equipment.
Will store employees be able to assemble / dismantle dump-bins?
Cardboard dump bins are easy to assemble by shop staff in store (even with no previous training / experience). It can be useful to include assembly instructions with the collapsed unit for initial setup. The ease of use also means that dump bins can be easily collapsed at the end of their life span and recycled too (being made from fully recyclable corrugated cardboard).
