Recycling Bins Ireland

Want to do your bit for the environment? Recycling bins make the task of organising your waste for recycling so much easier, be it at home or in the office. We have a variety of different sized recycling bins which should allow you to buy the size which best fits your requirements. If your premises has a lot of daily footfall, then different colour coded recycling bins will allow you to recycle more effectively. Alternatively, a single bin may be all that is required, and we strongly recommend the Acorn range of bins made from recycled cardboard. Shop our office recycling bins.

Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste.


Why Recycle?

When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the Earth, through mining and forestry. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future. 

Recycling conserves resources, saves energy, helps protect the environment and reduces landfill.

• Glass bottles become new glass bottles.


• Aluminum cans are turned back into aluminum cans, and can be recycled almost indefinitely. 


• Steel cans are used in other steel products such as car parts and construction materials, and can also be recycled over and over again.  


• Plastic bottles are recycled into carpet, clothing, auto parts, and new bottles.


• Paper is recycled into new paper. Some grades of paper can be recycled up to seven times.



How to Recycle?

Recycling could be very easy, at home, in the office, school or any other place. Especially if there are recycling bins or eye frendly color coded bins, which are easy recognisable.

Here at you will find wide range of recycling bins and colour coded bins to suite your preference.

Recycling Bins Labelling

Labeling you recycling bin is also important as different colour mould be used for different bins, For example colour Brown is used for bins that we can recycle organic and compostable waste but in some cases is also used to represent Brown Glass Only recycling bins.

All Recycling bins should be labeled to avoid confusions.

Addis Recycling 3x 60L Bins Kit with Colour Coded Lids Flip Top - Lids are designed to prevent the overspill - Quality construction will not deteriorate over time - Great for raising environmental awareness
  Great Quality Bins!
  "I have found that from asking our employees that everybody recycles at home but some just could not be bothered to do it here at work. So, I went and bought 3 sets of these Addis Recycling Bins. The bins have colour coded flip tops and because they have identification labels on them as to what to put in, people tend to be more recycle conscious. I put one set of three into our main office, one set into our engineering department office and another set into our canteen. I know it seems like spoon-feeding people but it has made a huge difference to our waste management. Our recycling is taken away for free so our general waste costs have reduced."
