In 2014, we started developing eco-friendly and reusable cardboard waste bins for internal use within our then graphics company. The positive response from our customers encouraged us to decide to start producing these waste bins, under the name Afvalbox, on a larger scale at the end of 2015.
Since then, Afvalbox has grown into a leading supplier of sustainable facility solutions for waste separation and collection of residual materials for recycling. Our customer base covers all of Europe and includes large international companies, renowned universities, schools, various healthcare institutions of different sizes, waste processors, government and public institutions. We also serve SMEs, catering companies, gyms and private individuals. The diversity of our customers in our extensive reference list testifies to the wide acceptance and confidence in our products and services.
Circular and sustainable business begins with a waste or collection bin from AFVALBOX.
