It's one of the most commonly used colours for recycling bins, and with our brown 1280-litre wheelie bin you can recycle more than most. Over 20 refuse sacks, in fact - or more than 500kg of loose waste, if you need it unbagged for recycling purposes. Brown recycling bins are often used for mixed waste streams like plastic, metal and glass, or for organic waste such as grass clippings and garden cuttings.
Whatever you choose to use your brown 1280l wheelie bin for, there are ways to customise it for the specific type of waste you want it to hold. These include different lid colours - we offer black, green and yellow - along with drop-front bins for easy loading, and other lid options such as a bottle aperture. Our brown 1280-litre wheelie bins can be ordered with a triangular key lock too, to keep the contents safe and sound until collection day.

A brown 1280-litre metal wheelie bin is perfect for residential developments with multiple occupancies, whether you are a private landlord, property developer, or a local authority looking to provide communal recycling facilities to tenants. The large capacity means less chance of excess rubbish piling up alongside the bin, and the large front face of the brown metal wheelie bin can be customised with corporate livery or local authority logos.
Last but not least, our 1280-litre bin in brown is manufactured to meet the requirements of the EN840 European Standard for mobile waste containers - better known as wheelie bins. This strict standard requires every bin to be safe to use, with no sharp edges, good weight distribution and balanced wheels. You'll notice this when you need to move your bin - just release the wheel brakes and use the built-in handles to glide it to its new position. It also complies with all UK Council regulations.
The 1280 Litre Wheelie Bins is available in the following colours:
