1.5m3 FEL Bin

Fill Height: 920 mm +160 mm with castors

The 1.5m³ is the bedrock design of the PLAST-AX FEL bin, first coming into production 2017.

PLAST-AX FEL bins deliver strength and endurance outside in the elements and through all the collection cycles of business as usual. Equally important, when you bring a PLAST-AX FEL bin inside, it has big, curved corners and smooth plastic surfaces that help protect people and plant when using and moving them around. The side FEL fork pockets provide a nice radiused handle grip to facilitate manually pushing them around on their castor wheels.

The 1.5m³ FEL bin stacks 4x high for efficient transport and storage.



Benefits of Use

In Use Cost

  • Significantly reduced R&M costs over the life of the bin.
  • Broken lids on steel bins are having to be continually replaced.
  • The cost of repairing a steel bin that has had its base rusted out after a few years is heavy.
  • PLAST-AX lids don’t break like others – they last.

Time Benefits

Often it’s the hassle factor of both the lid replacement + rust out repairs that is the real sucker-punch for operation teams in their busy schedules. 

Our Drivers Love Them!

At every opportunity we seek direct operational feedback from Front Load RCV operators, branch managers, and the front line champions handling PLAST-AX bins every day. 

This is what we’re told: 

  • The bins stack better for storage in our yard 
  • It’s a one man job to deliver a 3m³ bin if need be 
  • Moving bins by hand is a lot easier (than steel) 
  • Truck fork entry to the bins is very good, assisted by tapered pockets. 
  • Bins reposition themselves well on the forks 
  • PLAST-AX bins are a lot quieter to collect 

It’s direct feedback that drives our innovations and ideas; please make us your first port of call with any questions or suggestions.

Design Strength: Testing

PLAST-AX guarantees that every one of our FEL bins manufactured will meet performance requirements and specifications in BS EN 12574-2:2017.

The tests include a continuous 100 lift-tilt cycle at the ‘heavy waste’ load of 400kg/m³. Full video recordings and a comprehensive Test Report are readily available on request.

  • Box Section Top Rim
  • 40mm Solid Fork Pockets
  • Structural Ribbing
  • Solid Base & Forklift Channels

Bin Lid Options

Lids open onto the back ribbed section of the 3m³ and 4.5m³ Bins in a tongue and groove style, so that the entire surface area is in contact (rather than having a single point of impact to stress).

The recess in the top rim creates a nice lift access point; again, utilising the bin rather than impacting the strength integrity of the lid.


Our lock bar & brackets are hot dip galvanised and fit up retrospectively to the bins.
The bar and bracket are bolted in to captivated female fixings housed securely in the box section top rim.


125mm wheel sets are supplied as 2x Fixed Directional, 2x Swivel Braked Castors. 1200kg rated Red Polyurethane (PU) outer on a Cast Iron inner; or 600kg rated Blue Rubber on a Black PU inner (smaller bins). All wheels are supplied with stainless fixings.
