If you’re looking for a commercial bin with a large capacity then our large wheelie bins are ideal for you. Able to hold general waste, recycling, compactable industrial waste, commercial waste, and a lot more, our bins are perfect for a wide array of different business types. You can check to see whether they are suitable for your business’ waste disposal needs below, and by clicking on the Product Variation or Contamination Policy tabs above.
Our commercial wheelie bins have been designed to be easy to use and operate, whilst being able to hold a large amount of waste. The recognisable red bins have been created with lockable lids and castors in all four corners. Those casters have additional brake control build so that you can move the bin around with ease.
No matter what it is that you need to get rid of, or the business that you run, our large rubbish bins are able to collect and dispose of the following waste types:
- General waste
- Dry Mixed Recycling
- Single waste stream recycling (Paper, Card & Plastic)
- Compactable industrial waste
- Compactable commercial waste
That being said, our large red wheelie bins are not designed for:
- Hazardous waste
If you require glass or hazardous waste collecting from your premises, please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs in more detail.
At Biffa we have two different types of large wheelie bin available, depending on what it is you need and how much you will need to dispose of on a regular basis.

How much can I fit in a bin?
The typical amount of rubbish you can fit into one of our wheelie bins varies depending on the size of the bin; however, the typical large wheelie bin will hold between 12 and 15 black bin bags. This equals to a weight range of 45 to 90kg.
Depending on the type of wheelie bin you have, will depend what can be disposed of in that bin. At Biffa we have prepared the following contamination policy, designed to help you understand what you can put in each type of bin aside from general rubbish.
Using the below table you can see what can be put three different types of bin, whether it is a dry mixed recycling bin, a general waste bin for exchange modes, or a general waste bin for trade waste.
