The Electra 85 recycling bin for mixed recyclables is a large capacity, modern recycling container designed to collect all recycled materials in a single bin, encouraging users to recycle responsibly.

Manufactured with Armortec™-coated steel framework and Vandalex™ material body panels, the Electra 85 offers excellent fire and vandal resistance and has a substantial service life. The Armortec-coated steel frame and bin body panels are 100% recyclable, making the Electra 85 mixed recyclables recycling bin an environmentally friendly indoor recycling container.

Ideal for new and modern styled developments such as universities, retail developments, large transport hubs and architectural areas, the Electra 85 recycling container has a striking design that provides a long service life as corrosion and maintenance is minimal. The bin body panels have an anodised and polished Electra Grey finish, contrasting with the Armortec™ coated umbra grey steel frame to create an attractive, modern appearance.

The Electra 85 recycling bin is supplied as standard without any graphics. An extensive variety of graphics are available to purchase for this container, allowing you to tailor the look of the recycling bin to suit your requirements.
