The Many Varied Uses of the Humble Wheelie Bin

Wheelie bins are more than just rubbish disposal. Use them for storage of food ingredients to allow easy transport and safe storage.

Wheelie bins offer smart and easy storage

Designed for convenience, wheelie bins are highly functional and used across industries, and not just for waste disposal. They are considered to be a key component of food processing equipment and are often used in supermarkets and bakeries to store ingredients.

If you are looking for a safe bulk storage solution, wheelie bins are the perfect choice. You can choose from a wide range of sizes and capacities to suit your needs – if an 80l wheelie bin is too small, you can opt for a 140L wheelie bin, 240l wheelie bins or even something bigger. Beside the varied capacities available, wheelie bins have several other features that work in your favour.

They are versatile

These bins are made to keep their contents safe and are cleverly designed so they’re easy to use. Wheelie bins are simple to keep clean and meet hygiene standards easily. This is why they are often used to store food and bakery ingredients. They can be adapted to a number of different uses; you are only limited by your imagination.
They are often used for waste management in many establishments. These are especially useful as a self-supply option for those stores without contracted waste disposal.

They are so easy to use

You can choose between the 2-wheeled bin or the 4-wheeled bin models. Both make transporting goods much easier on your staff. Thanks to the wheels, moving ingredients from one spot to another becomes much quicker. Even heavy loads can simply be wheeled around without any physical exertion. This way, your employees can avoid lifting and don’t have to strain their backs or knees. You have this advantage whether you’re using the 120l wheelie bins or the larger 360l wheelie bin.

They are reusable and cost-effective

Wheelie bins are made with tough HD polyethylene material so they can comfortably withstand daily wear and tear. Even the flip lid is made to be strong enough to tolerate impact that is commonly expected in a processing plant or a supermarket. Thanks to their tough construction, wheelie bins can be reused for years which is more economical for you in the long run.

They are designed for efficiency

Made with flip lids, secure locking systems and wheels, these bins have been thoughtfully designed to make work as efficient as possible. They are also made with lids in different colours (for example: grey, green, red, blue) so they can fit in with any colour coding system that you have in place at your establishment. Colour coding different ingredients is a reliable method of preventing cross contamination. The sides of these bins are smooth with minimal or no grooves in the design. This was done deliberately so that they are easier to clean and can maintained with minimal effort.

They are very durable

Constructed from HD Polyethylene, these bins are extremely durable. Besides being able to store a very wide variety of products, they are also corrosion resistant and withstand outdoor elements much better than most other materials. This comes in handy if you are using them for waste management and need to store them outdoors. In this sense, they are much more durable than metal storage bins.
Wheelie bins are not just useful in large retails stores, factories or processing plants, they are often used for domestic use and in smaller stores as well. They are frequently used to safely store grains and other supplies in small retail spaces and bakeries. In individual homes, wheelie bins are often used to store things like dry dog food which needs a dry storage bin that is difficult for dogs to access.

August Featured Product – Bread Crate with Skate

NZ Bread Crates with Skate and vented crates are for more than just transporting bread. These plastic bread crates and vented crates are extremely adaptable.

You might think you know all the uses of vented bread crates. But you’re wrong. They can be used for a huge variety of non-bread related tasks.

Plastic bread crates are great for storing and moving baked goods.

Their size, food safe plastic and great airflow make them super versatile. From museum storage to drying seaweed, we’ve seen it all.

Why use plastic bread crates?

Here at Mills Display, our plastic bread crates are made from food-grade polypropylene. That means they are safe for use for food items.

There’s no risk of contamination from dodgy plastic or insects that live in timber. They are washable, so if you spill food, it’s a matter of washing them off and they are as good as new again.

They can be stacked and moved around easily on bread crate skates or by forklift.

This is great for food preparation, where you can prep and plate things up and then move them to the chiller or freezer until they are needed back in the kitchen.

You can easily stack plastic bread crates, to save room.

Because they are vented, they allow airflow. This makes them ideal for chiller or freezer use, because the cold air will reach the product straight away.

Allowing for much quicker- and safer- cooling of the food. The reverse works too, with dough rising easily in warm, damp environments.

For longer-term storage, there is less chance of food spoiling with fresh air moving around.

Bread crates have many uses

There are a huge range of ways our customers use bread crates, other than bread.

Catering and event planning

Traditional food organisations such as caterers and event planners use bread crates as part of the set-up process.

Like in commercial kitchens, the food is stored and then easily transported, unloaded and served from the stacked bread crates.

This means that food can easily be prepped the day before, set up on platters and then stacked up in the chiller.

Ready to be wheeled onto a truck and delivered the following day – chilled and ready to go.

Meals on wheels

Food delivery places such as Meals on Wheels also use bread crates so that meals can be securely transported in bulk to the recipients.

Vegetable transportation: Some vegetable growers like to use bread crates as vegetable or produce storage, depending on the crop.

Delicate spinach leaves or easily-bruised lettuce can be packaged safely in bread crates.

Only having one layer of stock ensures the produce reaches the destination in perfect condition.

Museum storage

Museums like bread crates to store items. Because they are storing objects in a single layer, there is less chance of damage to these valuable and rare artefacts.

The airflow around them is good too, as it discourages mould and mildew forming. The plastic means no risk of bugs being attracted by a timber frame.

Drying products

Because our bread crates are safe for use around food and they are well vented, some food producers use them to dry product.

Seaweed and salted fish are ideal to be dried in bread crates!

Seedling growing

Nurseries use bread crates to shift seedlings and plants around. From the nursery to the store, it’s easy to store pots of plants in bread crates.

You can water them, and the excess water drains away, making them ideal for garden use.

Some keen gardeners are even using bread crates to plant directly in by lining them with polythene, punching a few holes in the plastic, and filling with soil.

No weeds and they are easy to transport around when you need to put the seedlings in the ground.

Bread display

Because we can brand your bread crates, they make an attractive way to display your baked goodies. Whether at a supermarket or farmers market, this is the easiest way to keep your product free from damage during transporting and displayed attractively at your destination.

Why to buy your plastic bread crates from Mills Display?

While we hold black crates in stock, a wide variety of colours can be manufactured, although a minimum order applies.

They come in industry-standard size suitable for tilted display racks or bakery racks and bread dollies/skates.

We can label and brand two sides of your bread crates for you by hot stamping. This not only is great advertising for your company, but it also makes the crates difficult to misplace.

Other companies won’t want your branded bread crates and you want to retain your stock, so it’s a perfect solution.

Versatile and time-saving

• Volume: 48 Litre vented bread crate.
• Dimension: 680 mm x 600 mm x 150 mm.
• Material: food grade polypropylene.
• Can be stacked for space-efficiency.
• Option to brand the Bread Crates with your company logo
• Minimum order quantity applies.
