The 240-litre wheelie bin is the most common waste container size in the UK, with the majority of local councils using it for their kerbside domestic collections.
Every local authority uses a unique combination of bin colours for its waste and recycling management, so we recommend you double-check what you need before placing an order.
Our purple 240-litre wheelie bin is hard to miss; the colour is reminiscent of Cadbury’s wrappers and ‘The Purple One’ in Quality Street tins.
Ideal for use by councils and waste management companies, our purple 240l bin can also serve as the perfect replacement for a lost or damaged waste container — or, as an additional bin to store further waste.
Our purple 240l wheelie bins are incredibly hard-wearing, making them excellent value for money. With a robust body, solid rubber wheels, and galvanised metal parts, this bin is designed to last the distance.
Thanks to the specially developed HDPE they’re manufactured from, our purple 240l bins are UV-resistant, which means they don’t lose their vibrancy over time.
In addition, the HDPE our purple 240l wheelie bin is made from is resistant to chemicals and extreme temperatures.
