Continental Trade

Continental Overview

Built to EN840 standards the award-winning Continental range is established as the industry standard for waste and recycling containers, regardless of the market sector.

This workhorse of the waste industry offers unrivalled size and capacity options, from 500 litres to 1280 litres.

Highly Durable

A steel body, hot dipped galvanised along with internally welded seams, ensures robust protection in the harshest of environments, and protects the container from internal corrosion due to residual waste be caught in exposed corners.

Exceptionally Strong

Patented construction details developed at our unique ‘Test House’ give the Continental range the versatility to manage dense food waste, co-mingled waste as well as the lightest recyclate. That strength also means our trade waste bins keep on working, so you maximise productivity even in the hardest-working commercial environments, providing real value for money

Assured Compliance

Our Continental bins are built at our UK manufacturing centre and tested to EN 840 standards in accordance with WISH guidelines, so you can have confidence that your bins will deliver outstanding performance with a proven track record for safety.

Brand Identity

The Continental waste bin’s exterior can be customised to your specific corporate colours, and with a bespoke logo designed by our inhouse team we can make sure that you container fleet reflects the professional image of your business. This is a quality product you’ll be proud to put your company name on.


Our Continental range of bins can be configured to suit your needs. For example, providing innovative solutions such as WEEE containers for the safe storage of small electrical items, Hands Free foot operated lids to allow users to open the container without touching the lid, thus being empty bulky items into the bin with both hands.
