Continental 1100L

With over 1.2 million units bought, and in use by nearly nine out of ten UK local authorities, the Continental 1100 litre is the undisputed benchmark for waste and recycling containers.

Stylish and easy to use, this 4 wheeled bin can be configured to your most exacting requirements, on even the most demanding waste collection rounds. From DIN points and Danish handles, to lid locks and corporate livery, the Continental 1100 litre is the most adaptable commercial waste bin around.

No wonder it’s the winner of a World Industrial Design Award.

Quality manufacture means Continental bins keep working, even under the toughest conditions. Like all Taylor metal waste and recycling bins, the Continental 1100 has a hardwearing galvanized steel body and base.

Internally welded seams stop water penetration, preventing the corrosion that plagues less well made metal waste containers. With full EN840 certification, the will give you exceptional lifetime value with limited down time, unlike plastic and other alternative steel commercial trade waste bins.
