Litter and Waste Bins For Outdoor Use
By installing a bin in your public space, you can improve it in a few ways. Not only will this reduce the amount of littering in the area reducing the amount of visible litter, but this will also have the byproduct of improving the space’s aesthetics and compelling passers-by to appreciate the open space further. Installing litter bins also reduces the amount of work required to keep an area in a visually pleasing condition (which is usually the most important attribute of an open space).
At Start Safety, we stock a wide range of rubbish and litter bins designed for outdoor installation, which can cater to most locations and needs. Whether you’re looking for a recycling bin for a courtyard, a dog waste bin to go with the other items of street furniture in your public park, a cigarette bin to go in your smoking shelter or even a child-friendly bin with vibrant colours, we have something for your needs!
How To Choose The Best Bin For My Needs
You must consider a few unique factors when deciding what kind of bin to install:
Assess the volume of waste generated in your open space to determine the appropriate bin size.
Look for bins made from durable materials that are suitable for outdoor use. Weather-resistant materials like stainless steel or UV-resistant plastics ensure longevity and maintain the bin's appearance year-round.
Look for features that improve usability, such as easy-access lids, secure closures, and efficient waste disposal mechanisms. Some bins include separate compartments for recycling and general waste, promoting responsible waste sorting.
Ensure the bin is accessible to everyone, including children and individuals with mobility challenges.
Evaluate the ease of cleaning and maintaining the bin. Choose bins with smooth surfaces to simplify the cleaning process and ensure replacement parts are easily obtainable.
In public spaces, particularly where security is a concern, opt for bins equipped with features like lockable lids to prevent unauthorised access or tampering, deterring vandalism or misuse.
Consider the environmental impact of the materials used in the bin in relation to its expected lifespan. Does it align with sustainability goals? This is especially important for recycling bins.
Keep in mind that investing in a high-quality, durable bin may be cost-effective in the long run due to lower maintenance and replacement costs over its lifetime.
Be aware of any local regulations or guidelines governing waste management in outdoor spaces in your area.
Litter bins are essential to maintaining cleanliness and tidiness in your public space. Our rubbish bins are available in various shapes, sizes, and styles for everyday landfill waste and cater to most environments, from urban areas to parks. Manufactured from durable materials, these “black bins” are built to withstand outdoor elements, ensuring longevity and reliability.
With user-friendly features such as secure lids and easy-access openings, our litter bins make waste disposal as efficient as possible, promoting a cleaner and more pleasant environment for everyone.
Manufactured from a range of materials, including durable steel, environmentally conscious wood, and recycled plastic, our recycling bins offer practical waste management solutions in visually appealing packages. Whether you prefer a classic, subtle design or a modern style, our collection caters to diverse tastes.
Our recycling bins come in various colours, too (including colour-coded bins)!
These are by far the most versatile bins in our collection, available in a huge range of different shapes and sizes. Smoking bins are available in wall-mounted ashtray versions, in bollard versions, in larger, more traditional “bin shapes”, and as an attachment to an existing bin. The style you choose ultimately depends on your exact use case and what would work best in the space you have available to you. Even smoking shelters can incorporate different bin types depending on their size, the layout you’re going for and the type of benches that have been used in that space.
Cigarette bins are available in different materials with varying lifespans and can also offer odour reduction methods such as resealable flaps. The ash collection method is also important to bear in mind if you expect smokers to ash their cigarettes whilst smoking.
Dog Waste Bins

Whether you choose a discreet and space-efficient model or a more robust solution, our collection is adapted to any outdoor environment.
