Douglas Borough Council takes delivery of Wybone Wheelie Bin Covers

July 30, 2018

This month we’ve delivered another large batch of our WBC/240 Glass Fibre Wheelie Bin Covers for Douglas Borough Council on the Isle of Man. We’ve worked with the council for a number of years, providing our large capacity wheelie bin housings to collect waste in and around the island.

The council opts for our classic Victoriana style unit which includes our extremely weather resistant, Hammerite black finish and hand painted gold beading. Take a look at our new colour guide for more information on our range of colours.

The unit features three standard apertures to the front and sides and a gold LITTER moulded plate to the front. Finally, a gold Tidyman logo is also included on the bin, which houses a 240 litre wheelie bin and is a great way to collect a large amount of waste on busy streets.

In our time working with the council, we’ve provided them with 132 wheelie bin covers – these bins offer excellent corrosion resistance and are a great way to hide unsightly wheelie bins.

Our GFC material not only conforms to BS476 parts 6 & 7, but it is also rated at Class 1/0 Building Regulations. The longevity of our GFC products means they offer a low carbon footprint and many remain in situ for the best part of 2 decades!

Our glass fibre wheelie bin range is available in a wide range of sizes to house wheelie bins from 120 litres right up to 360 litres (or a combination of multiple wheelie bins). The special mix of glass fibre is a manufacturing process for litter bins that is exclusive to us here at Wybone. The mix of a wooden carcass covered with glass fibre ensures complete corrosion resistance – ideal for seaside areas – and offers a high level of vandal resistance. You can even see a video of our production manager testing the durability of our bins by performing our ‘hammer test’.
