In 2014, we designed the sustainable circular cardboard waste bins for our own use within our printing company. Due to the many positive reactions of our customers to this product, we decided at the end of 2015 to start producing these waste bins under the name Afvalbox.
In the years that followed, Afvalbox grew to become the market leader for sustainable facility solutions in waste separation and collection of residues for recycling. We now have an extensive reference list in the Netherlands, the Benelux and beyond. Such as: leading international companies, universities, schools, hospitals, retailers, waste processors and government and public institutions.
Circular and sustainable business begins with a waste or collection bin from AFVALBOX.
Strengths and weaknesses of AFVALBOX:
FIRE SAFETY: fire classification according to EN 13501-1, This degree of fire safety is possible because the cardboard is tightly glued in multiple layers and does not contain open cells as with corrugated cardboard and honeycomb cells.
