4 Wheeled 1280 Litre Steel Wheelie Bin

The 1280 Continental offers a number of advantages compared to other bins. For example the capacity of the 1280 is significantly increased over an 1100 Litre bin while sitting in exactly the same footprint. This allows you to collect more waste without taking up any more street space. It also means that less frequent collections are needed which allow significant fuel savings and reduced CO2 emissions. As a result more and more Local Authorities are switching from an 1100L to a 1280L bin to maximise efficiency and save on CO2 emissions and fuel.

Advantages of a 1280L

  • More waste capacity allowing for less frequent collections.
  • Convenient space saving design (sits in same footprint as 1100).
  • Saves time, fuel and CO2 due to less frequent collection rounds.
  • Available with Towing and Fork Lift Pocket Options.
  • Range of colour colour and lid options.
  • Fully EN840 certified.
