Food Donation BinProduct Code: BC/DONATION/WEB
The Food Donation Bin has been designed to reduce waste and provide a collection point for users to deposit their donated items.
What is this bin manufactured from?
Designed on our popular Box Cycle Range, the lid and base are manufactured from durable galvanised steel and the transparent body is manufactured from robust polythene. The large rectangular aperture can accommodate most food packaging, including cereal boxes and other snacks.
Our metal lids are then primed and powder coated in any standard RAL colour, take a look at our colour guide for more information.
The transparent body makes its purpose easily identifiable and can also help with the identification of suspect items that may have been deposited inside the unit.
Why was this bin manufactured?
This bin was originally designed for Manchester Metropolitan University in a bid to reduce unnecessary food waste. The University decided to have a number of the bespoke units manufactured to place around busy areas of the campus.
We have worked with a number of organisations since to create donation points. We provided SEI Investments in London with several bins for food, clothing and toy and book donations that will aid their grassroots giving campaign SEI London Cares. We have recently distributed Food Donations Bins all the way to the island of Malta to help with their National Food Drive initiative, read more about this story.
How does this bin help with charitable collections?
The wide aperture makes items easy to deposit, whether it’s cereal boxes or coats that you are donating. The transparent body allows the items to be seen, which prevents any unwanted rubbish from being left inside the unit. The large capacity allows the bin to collect a generous amount, without having to worry about emptying the unit on a regular basis.
What capacity is this bin?
The Food Donation Bin is available in a 120 litre or 160 litre capacity and has a 75mm deep lid, allowing you to choose the correct size based on the volume of items you expect to collect.
Does this bin come with any warranties?
As with all Wybone galvanised steel units, it comes with a 1 year parts and labour guarantee and a 10 year anti-perforation warranty as standard, which guarantees the surface of our products from rusting through completely.
Where should I put this bin?
As this bin has been designed to collect unwanted items, we recommend placing this bin in a communal area such as a canteen or university union. We regularly use our Food Donation Bin to collect items for charities that we support – we keep our bin in the reception of our headquarters as a focal collection point.
How do I empty this bin?
When the unit is full and the items are ready to be collected, simply lift off the lid and empty. If you decide to place a bag inside this unit to make emptying easier, the lid acts as a sack retention frame to keep it in place.
Can I customise this bin?
White vinyl lettering clearly displays the bins use on the lid and an A4 vinyl sticker can be added to display ‘Food Donation Point’ or your chosen artwork. If you would like your own bespoke artwork, feel free to get in touch with us – our in-house design team are more than happy to discuss your requirements.
