How to Choose the Right Recycling Bin Manufacturer

Finding the right recycling bin manufacturer for your business can be difficult. Recycling bins can have many different uses and applications for different businesses, whether it’s for standard recycling purposes, package dropoff and collection, or donations. Choosing the right bin for your specific application, and the right manufacturer to get it made for you, can be difficult, as there are many features to consider. This includes overall quality, safety, maintenance, location, and customization for your specific needs.

Quality and Durability

When choosing a recycling bin, prioritizing high quality is essential, as it ensures longevity and durability. But what exactly defines a high-quality recycling bin? In general, durability is a key factor to consider, as this will most likely be a long- term investment for your business. At LEED Bin, we understand the importance of durability, which is why our bins are crafted using galvanneal steel, which prevents rust and ensures exceptional endurance. Additionally, the hinges in our bins are made from stainless steel, so they won’t rust or swell over time. With these superior materials and construction, we guarantee that our recycling bins are built to withstand the test of time and deliver optimal performance throughout their lifespan.

Safety and Security

Safety and security are another important factor to consider when looking for a recycling bin manufacturer. Whether you are collecting expensive and personal items and packages or simply using it for recycling, keeping potential thieves out of your bins is crucial. LEED Bin has the safety of your bins in mind, offering optional anti-theft chutes to keep the contents of your bins safe and protected. With this added security measure, you’ll be able to ensure the safety and security of your bins and breathe a bit easier knowing they’re safe.


The location of your manufacturer is another factor to consider. While it may be cheaper to find a manufacturer overseas to get your bins made, the tradeoff is that you lose many of the benefits that come with local manufacturing. Overseas production often means much longer wait times of additional weeks or months. You also lose the convenience and communication of a local manufacturer, as dealing with manufacturers on the other side of the world makes communicating your needs more difficult.

LEED Bin is proudly based in the United States, making it easier for us to work closely with you, especially when it comes to making custom solutions to meet your specific requirements. This also means a much faster turnaround time, eliminating the months-long wait associated with overseas manufacturing and shipping. If at any point in the future you need a replacement part, our convenient local customer service will ensure you get it as quickly as possible. When you choose LEED Bin, you are supporting local American manufacturing and reducing your carbon footprint.


Depending on what you’re looking for, you may need specific features to be custom made for you. You may need a bin of specific dimensions, or even painted a specific color, depending on the exact use and application. We offer custom solutions to ensure that you get exactly what you’re looking for. Our standard bins are 4’ x 4’, but we can custom make bins for you in entirely different dimensions. Additionally, we offer custom color options. Whatever it is you’re looking for, we’re happy to work together with you to make sure you can get it.
