More info on Office Recycling Bins

Environmental concerns have come under increased scrutiny over the past 2 – 3 years, with many businesses and organisations proactively seeking ways to become more eco-friendly.

Yet, 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, there is clearly still significant improvements to be made.

One way in which your business can assist your employees in being more green is through the use of cardboard recycling bins.

A truly eco friendly office recycling solution, these bins are manufactured in the UK from recycled corrugated cardboard and, designed with schools and public locations in mind. They are also colour coded for clearer waste recycling of multiple materials.

The coloured office bins can be supplied in a standard size of 400 mm (wide) x 400 mm (deep) x 680 mm (high) or manufactured bespoke to your requirements (subject to order volume).

Office recycling bins are supplied flat for minimised transit costs / impact and are also quick and easy to assemble.

Office recycling ideas

Besides the standard colours available, it is also possible for your business to specify the colours of the recycling bins you require.

This may be to match company branding, or to match your existing décor / environment.

It is also possible to have printed logos and / or instructions on these recycling bins (again subject to order volumes) to carry your branding throughout your business.

For many waste management companies, these can also be used as great give-away to prospective (or existing) clients, allowing you to get your logo into businesses you are looking to trade with.

And finally, it is possible to coat the corrugated material with a water-resistant coating to further enhance the lifespan of your office recycling bins. Correx® plastic versions can also be specified for use in clean room applications or for clinical waste.

Common questions on office recycling bins

Not sure if these cardboard recycling bins are right for your business? Or have some other questions whilst considering these for your school or organisation?

Please see below for answers to the most commonly asked questions, or alternatively reach out to one of our advisers on 10793 754 444 or We’ll be happy to help.

What size are these eco bins?

The standard (and most commonly requested) size of these recycling bins is 400 mm (wide) x 400 mm (deep) x 680 mm (high). However, these can be manufactured to any size / design you require (although this will be subject to a minimum order quantity).

What do the different colours represent?

By default, the standard colours of these office bins are as follows. Red is for plastics (bottles & other plastic waste); green is for general waste (including textile, wood, glass); Blue is for paper; and grey is for metals (e.g. empty drinks cans).

Can I have custom printed recycling bins?

It is possible to add branding, logos, instructions, and even full graphics to your office recycling bins as required (although a minimum order quantity does apply). This makes them perfect for corporate environments, or for waste management companies to give to customers.

I need a very specific size – is this possible?

As GWP have an extensive design team, and manufacture these bins ourselves, the possibilities are almost limitless. This means that you can specify sizes, designs, colours, materials and even specialist coatings.

Are these suitable for use outside?

Due to the nature of corrugated cardboard – even when treated with a waterproof coating – these would not be suitable for outside use. The exception to this is for temporary use (such as at events) where they only need to have a short lifespan.

Can these be used in medical / clean room applications?

Cardboard is not suitable for use in clean room or medical applications, as it is difficult to clean and can shed fibres which may contaminate samples etc. However, if bins of this type are required, then using Correx® plastic is a suitable option.
