F.A.Q

What Makes the Sherwood™ Litter Bin Ideal for Parks and Public Environments?

Sherwood Litter bin fits perfectly in outdoor areas.

When maintaining the natural beauty of parks, nature reserves and other natural public settings, your outdoor litter bins shouldn’t be a disappointment to you or your visitors.

We designed the Sherwood™ Litter Bin to not only help you combat littering and maintain litter-free public environments, but to also fit perfectly in natural settings with an attractive wooden-effect finish and low maintenance guaranteed.

Designed to Complement Natural Settings.

The Sherwood litter bin is manufactured with Everwood™ material, which is a specially formulated, heavy-duty polymer with a realistic, timber grain effect finish.

The entire body of the bin is made with Everwood material and is available in light oak and dark oak colours to complement different outdoor settings.

Not only does the waste bin look great in its environment, but it is also good to the environment too. Using Everwood material means that the bin body can be totally recycled, 100%, at the end of its long service life.

Easy Operation and Low Maintenance.

When managing busy parks, estates and attractions, furniture for public environments should be easy to operate and extremely low maintenance to reduce ongoing costs associated with time or labour.

The Sherwood is a public litter bin that offers both.

Available with a lockable twist lid, the bin offers a generous 65-litre capacity and you can choose to collect the waste in a sack or steel liner, depending on your method of collection.

Unlike wood, the Everwood material requires no regular surface treatments such as staining or painting and it will not rot. It is unaffected by salt, bacteria, mould and insects and is quick and easy to wipe clean.

Everwood available in light oak and dark oak.

Weather and Vandal Resistance.

As Everwood material is designed to withstand extremes of temperature, the Sherwood litter bin is suited to long term exposure in any outdoor location. The lockable lid features a sloping roof to stop rainwater from pooling inside the bin and prevent litter from being left on the top.

We rigorously test all of our products to ensure they meet Glasdon standards of quality.

You can watch how the Sherwood litter bin performs in the vandal test video on our product page. See our product testing video here.

Extinguish flames with Firexpire®.

Manage the risk of a fire in a public litter bin with the option of Firexpire.

Firexpire is a fire extinguishing plate that can be fitted within the top of a selection of our hooded outdoor litter bins.

Should a fire break out inside the bin, a special heat-responsive device releases the plate which then seals off the mouth of the liner and starves the fire of oxygen.

The device can then be easily replaced using only a screwdriver to reset the device on-site.

Firexpire is a fire safety device that can be attached to a selection of Glasdon bins.

Please note: this device is designed to be used with metal liners only.

More optional extras.

Because we know our customers exact requirements can differ, we offer many other options for you to choose from.
