Waste Containers

From wheelie bins to high volume compacters

Introduction to Waste Containers

Gaskell’s waste containers cater for the full range of commercial disposal and recycling needs, from wheelie bins similar in size to domestic bins, right the way through to roll on-roll off and compaction containers.

Wheelie bins are the format of choice for most small to medium-sized businesses, offering 240 or 360 litres of capacity on a typical two-wheeled ‘wheelie bin’ and 660 or 1100 litres on a four-wheeled commercial bin.

All four sizes are lockable and can be moved easily around your site and can be stored inside or outside.

Even larger capacity can be found in our front end loaders (FEL) range, which can accommodate between 8 and 10 cubic yards of waste – several times larger than even our largest wheeled bin.

FEL’s are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use although their larger size compared to wheeled bins means they will need a relatively large amount of indoor space.

For outdoor use, the lockable lids mean security does not need to be a concern, and also helps to protect against any health & safety risks,

For the very largest quantities of waste, Ro-Ro skips are available with either 20 or 40 cubic yard capacities.  Disposal of waste contained within this type of container is charged by weight rather than by lift.

And finally, to maximise the efficient use of your container capacity, we can supply static and mobile compaction equipment, which allows waste materials to be crushed down to fit more into the collection vehicle on disposal day.

What type of container is best for my business?

We provide all sizes and types of containers from wheelie bins to Front End Loaders and Roll on Roll off skips.

This isn’t a one size fits all, as the size of container depends entirely on your needs.

Sizes range from 240 litre to 1100 litre containers with lockable lids available.

These are ideal for all types of business & commercial waste including general waste, cardboard, mixed recycling, food and glass.

Front End Loaders, or FELs, are the familiar kind of commercial lidded skips, suitable for large volumes of compactable waste, and especially for recyclable cardboard waste and other dry mixed recyclables.

Containers can be stored internally or externally and are available in a range of sizes with lockable lids if required.

Roll On-Roll Off, or Ro-Ro skips, are among the largest containers available for commercial use, suitable for the disposal of very large quantities of general waste and bulky materials like construction waste and scrap.
