News: MGB Plastics secures further council contracts


Rotherham-based MGB Plastics, the UK's leading manufacturer of wheelie bins, has secured further contracts that will see 250,000 new wheelie bins delivered to homeowners in London, Wigan and Wiltshire in time for the busy Christmas period.

The news comes shortly after MGB won a major deal to supply hundreds of thousands of waste management products with Serco - one of the biggest operators of waste services in the country. It is currently supplying Serco with 100,000 bins which will be delivered to homes in Sandwell.

Conor Sugrue, general manager at MGB Plastics, said: "As a business, our aim is to work with local authorities and waste management companies across the UK to increase the recycling rates and we are really excited about the important role our products will play.

"These bins will play a crucial role in helping to increase the recycling rates in the area and reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and safeguard the environment.

"We have started the delivery of these products and we aim to complete the roll-out over the new few weeks. All the bins we are supplying have been made at our factory in Rotherham and this contract further strengthens our standing as the leading manufacturer and distributor of wheelie bins in the UK."

The contract will see MGB Plastics manufacture and deliver around 120,000 new blue lidded 240L bins to Wiltshire Council alongside a roll-out of 70,000 240L green bins to Waltham Forest Council and 60,000 240L brown bins to Wigan Council.

In August MGB made a a six figure investment in new machinery that means that the manufacturing capacity of the 50,000 sq ft facility on Barbot Hall Industrial Estate is 1.5 million wheeled bins per annum.

Over the Summer, MGB supplied the Isle of Wight festival, the British Golf Open and Cheltenham Gold Cup with its bins being used by fans to keep the area clean and tidy.
