We have a wide range of litter bins for your project requirements

Whether you are sourcing a litter bin for an urban space or a more traditional park or green area, Street Furniture Direct has a range of litter bins to suite your client’s brief:

Litter bins: Our extensive range of litter bins includes a range of designs, styles, and material selections. The Henry Bin is a popular choice among sub-contractors, urban planners, and local councils, due to its robust structure and ease of use (you simply open the top to empty the internal bin). Its simple design also complements any outdoor environment.

For a more modern and contemporary outdoor environment, the Hector Square Wood Effect Waste Bin is a popular option. The construction of the bin is from recycled plastic fixed on a steel frame. However, it carries the benefits of a wood effect finish, creating a more natural look.

Finally, the Outdoor Open Top Steel Waste Bin is a popular choice among sub-contractors working on rural projects such as parks and green spaces. It’s large 69 litre capacity is ideal for areas with a large footfall, and the incredibly durable construction and simple steel structure means it integrates well into natural surroundings.

Cigarette bins: Our Lobby Style Cigarette Litter Bin is ideal for commercial developments looking for a simple yet stylish cigarette bin for their outdoor space. It is constructed from stainless steel and features a powder coated finish to ensure a high resistance to the elements and corrosion.

The Stainless Steel Round Standing Cigarette Bin is a more stylish and compact option and popular in hospitality projects. The sleek, modern cigarette bin is constructed from high quality grade 304 stainless steel. And it is easy to fix where all it requires is fixing bolts through the base plate.

Dog waste bins: The Hercules Dog Waste Bin is a popular choice for sub-contractors working on outdoor projects. It is a versatile dog waste bin that integrates into a number of commercial, urban, and rural environments.

It is constructed using steel throughout which makes it incredibly durable and hard wearing, and resistant to the elements (particularly useful with the British weather!). Another popular feature is the top lid, which contains any less than desirable smells that will emanate from the bin.

What should you look for when selecting a litter bin for your project?

As a sub-contractor, selecting the right litter bins for your client’s project involves several important considerations. It is important to note these factors to ensure the bin meets the requirements of the space and encourages proper waste disposal:

Durability and function: Litter bins in outdoor environments must be able to withstand heavy use and exposure to various weather conditions. Therefore, durability is a key feature to consider. Look for bins made from robust materials such as stainless steel, cast iron, or heavy-duty plastic.

Aesthetics: The design of the bin should blend seamlessly with the surrounding environment. Choose a style and colour that complements the other street furniture (if relevant) and overall aesthetic of the space.

Ease of use: The bins should have a clear opening for waste disposal, making them user-friendly. The easier they are to use, the more likely people are to dispose of their waste correctly. This will benefit your client’s space keeping it clean and more appealing.

Maintenance: Look for litter bins that are easy to clean and maintain, and have a straightforward process for removing and replacing the inner bin or bag.

Sustainability and green credentials: Whenever possible, choose bins that are made from recycled or sustainable materials, contributing to the overall eco-friendly vision of the outside space. This is an increasingly important consideration for any sub-contractor on their client’s journey to net carbon zero.

Rubbish capacity: Depending on the footfall and usage, the size and capacity of the litter bins will vary. High-traffic areas will require larger bins or more frequent emptying.

Accessibility: Litter bins should be easily accessible and placed at regular intervals in high-traffic areas. Consider the height and design for accessibility, including for individuals in wheelchairs or children.
