St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2013/01/24 - Waste King, the specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, has reported a substantial increase so far this year in Hertfordshire-based businesses switching to its wheeled bins (known as Euro-bins) - WasteKing.co.uk.
Glenn Currie, Waste King’s managing director, explained: “These new customers tell us that, using Waste King’s Euro-bins, they’re apparently able to save around 30 per cent of their previous waste disposal costs. While we’ve been surprised at this sudden up-surge in demand for our Euro-bins, we’re naturally delighted to be able to sign-up new customers!”
Waste King can supply the cat, dog and rodent-resistant wheeled bins sometimes known as Euro-bins or ‘wheelies’ - to commercial premises and residential homes. Euro-bins come in a variety of sizes and Waste King undertakes to supply to an appropriate bin for each customer, taking into account their weekly or monthly waste generation.
All Waste King bins are made to the European standards (EN840). They are heat, cold and chemically resistant and, and since most of them are of the Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) type, they can dramatically help customers increase the amount of waste that is recycled rather than going to landfill.
From the 240 litre ‘wheelie’ bin to a locakable 1100 litre bin, these bins can take general waste, including food waste and glass but not hazardous waste.
“Our customers can use a bin for general waste but they’re also choosing to have a number of bins and then designating a bin to be solely for one type of waste such as plastic or paper,” Glenn Currie said. “This increases the amount of their waste that can be recycled rather than sent to landfill and that helps them to promote their ‘green’ credentials as a business.”
Depending on a customer’s requirements, Waste King arranges weekly or fortnightly bin collections.
