Plastic bins are lighter and easier to move around, they never rust or decompose and graffiti can be easily removed with non-toxic cleaners, eliminating the need to be painted and re-painted. The color is body deep, not just on the surface like metal/steel. Special UV stabilization makes Plastic bins particularly resistant to ageing. While Metal bins are not resistant to rotting, cold, heat and chemicals.
