Types Of Waste

Our wheelie bins come in 5 different waste types, these are:

  • General Waste
  • Cardboard/Paper Recycling
  • Dry Mix Recycling (DMR)
  • Food Recycling
  • Glass Recycling

240 Litre Bin

Our 240L bin is the smallest one we do here at Bakers Waste. You can expect this bin to fit around 5 regular-sized bin bags inside it. The regularity of collection can be arranged case by case, for example, once a week, once every 2 weeks, once a month, etc.

A big benefit of this bin is that it’s the only bin that can be used for all waste types. Food and Glass are exclusive to our 240L bin. This is due to the weight of food and glass being too heavy for our trucks to lift in any bigger sizes.
