Eco Bins

Recycled corrugated cardboard eco bins are environmentally friendly and aid recycling

Eco Bins – also commonly referred to as cardboard recycling bins – are manufactured to promote recycling in the community, in locations such as schools and businesses.


Created using recycled corrugated cardboard they are 100% biodegradable, plus they come in a range of standard sizes and can be supplied with short lead times in any volume required. As well as encouraging recycling, cardboard recycling bins are also quick and easy to assemble.


To discover more about the cardboard recycling bins available from GWP Packaging, and begin helping the environment, please continue reading or contact our team today.

With up to 60% of the rubbish that ends up in office and school bins being recyclable, and 9 in 10 people saying they would recycle more if it were easier, using colour coded corrugated recycling bins can make a big difference to the eco-credentials of your organisation.

Encourage recycling and environmental awareness at your school or business

Environmental concerns are always particularly prominent in the packaging industry and GWP in particular take these responsibilities very seriously.


As such, an opportunity was identified to help promote recycling in the wider community, and particularly schools, with the “Eco-Bin” product.
