And you might have already guessed that they also come in sizes a lot bigger than we are commonly used to.

    Most of us have 240 litre wheelie bins at home. We use them for our general waste and for our recyclable bottles and waste paper. Their design means that they can be moved quite easily and toughened lip means they can be picked up by the refuse coll...
