The Skip Units 4 wheeled metal bin, available in 1100 litre and 660 litre capacities, offers the highest standard product specification available on the UK market. The bin features 1.7mm* thick galvanised steel body, fully internally seam welded to prevent liquid ingress and rusting. The base features 2.0mm** thick galvanised steel, 20% more than standard specification of other brands of bin, to prolong container life and avoid unwanted refurbishment costs.

Standard containers are supplied in galvanised steel finish. A powder coated paint finish in RAL colour of your choice is available as an option as are the supply of decals.

In addition to the standard high quality double skinned DuraFlex lids, we are able to offer the world’s largest selection of wheeled cart trade waste and recycling container lids.
