Wheelie Bins are smelly and frankly disgusting objects, whether or not bin liners are used to contain the rubbish placed inside them. All bin bags will inevitably end up with nicks, rips, and slashes, leaving odours, mushy stuff and horrible oozy liquids to find their way to the bottom of the bin. After a time and especially during the warmer seasons, bins left in this condition will attract maggots, flies and animals searching for the gunk within. The terrible smell will nauseate passers-by and leave whoever’s on ‘bin duty’ in a state of shock once they’ve taken out the trash.
The average wheelie bin is about four feet tall. Now no matter how tall you are, this will pose a problem when you unintentionally drop something inside. If an average person were to get into the bin, the top would come somewhere around their stomach or chest level. Leaning into the bin is just not an option; it leads to considerable discomfort, nasty mess on your clothes and to be honest, you’re not going to reach the bottom. Also very likely is the fact that you may even fall in…
Take a look to your right at our Robinson Young Wheelie Bin Liners. These are 240 litre bags which are suited mostly to Standard Sized 240 litre wheelie bins (but are also a help around the home or office). They are 88 Gauge and come in rolls of 30. What Robinson Young have done here, is solve a massive problem. When using one of these after every bin collection, you inevitably avoid any nasty mess inside your wheelie bin, which in turn prevents odours. If anything is dropped inside, well you just remove the bag and easily fish out your item. The refuse collection team will take your Wheelie Bin Liners with the rest of your trash; all you have to do is place a new one inside once they’ve been. Another perk to these particular bin liners is that they are made using over 50% recycled materials, so you’re being friendly to the environment too.
