About the Food Donation Bin

The Food Donation Bin has been designed for the collection of non-perishable food donations, with a large aperture to deposit larger food items.

Manufactured with a durable galvanised steel lid and base with a polythene transparent body that allows the contents to be seen.

This donation unit is available in a 120 or 160 litre capacity and has been designed with a large rectangular aperture to accommodate even the largest of food items, such as cereal boxes.

The transparent body allows the contents to be seen and makes its purpose more visible to users. Optional artwork is also available in mixed recycling colours – orange or green.

If you’re looking for something more bespoke, our in-house design team are more than happy to look into this – send us an email with your requirements.

Food Donation Bin

Wybone - Food Donation Bin

Subtotal (excluding delivery)


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.

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.

The wide aperture makes items easy to deposit, whether it’s cereal boxes or coats that you are donating – with a width of 310mm and a depth of 130mm, even the largest of products will fit.

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.

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.

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.

The Contour Litter Bin comes with a choice of galvanised steel frame colours and you can choose to have the door either the same colour, or a different colour to the surround. You can take a look at our finishes and colour range here. You can use vinyl artwork to depict the waste stream and ensure the right waste / recycling is collected.

This bin can also be manufactured with decorative Iroko hardwood panels to the front. Take a look at our Contour Litter Bin with Iroko Panels.

As this food bank has been designed to collect unwanted items, we recommend placing this bin in a communal area such as a canteen or university union. They’re also great in supermarkets and halls of residence. We regularly use our Food Donation Bin to collect items for charities that we support – we keep our food bank in the reception of our headquarters as a focal collection point.

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.

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.
