Our Tall 40 Gallon Recycling Receptacle for Plastic encourages recycling with a stylish container and a clearly labeled lid.  Recycle properly with design consistency in your surrounding furnishings and our complete set of 40-gallon recycling and trash receptacles.  All are made to complement our Green-Scapes Collection of furnishings.

The R40C 40-gallon recycling receptacle for plastic is ready to go to work!  The ‘Plastic’ label engraving is included with inlay.  And the rain cap lid has a round hole to further indicate which material the bin is collecting.   Optional icons with off-white inlay are also available to assist guests who don’t read English but want to recycle their plastic.

40 Gallon Recycling Receptacles for other materials

The R40C for plastic is one of 5 matching 40-gallon recycling receptacles, each with a specific label and deposit opening shape to differentiate the material.  Pair these with the Tall T40C Trash Receptacles for a complete and matching collection system.

The rain-cap top comes in black.  Choose from 7 nature-inspired and UV-protected colors for the base.

The R40C recycling receptacles include a rigid liner and our Easy Bag System.  Due to the large 40-gallon capacity, we recommend using contractor bags as trash bags.

The All-Weather Durability and Stunning Design

The best part is that our 40-Gallon Recycling Receptacles walk the talk because they’re made of 100% recycled HDPE plastic!  Recycled plastic is a very efficient material because it’s strong and durable, and can take the abuse of high-traffic and weather extremes.  The entire receptacle including the lid, slats, and framework are made of recycled plastic.

Another benefit is that we use all marine-grade stainless steel fasteners because they last longer than galvanized ones.  You will never have rust streaks down the outside of your receptacle because we also fasten the slats from the inside of the base.  That leaves a clean facade on every side without unsightly bolts through the planks.

Cleaning & Maintenance Instructions

Plastic & Recycled Plastic Products

For Routine Maintenance & Cleaning

For general cleaning of plastic products, use soap and water or a household cleaner such as 409, Windex, etc. Do not use an abrasive cleaner.

For Most Stains

Most stains can be easily removed from plastic products with soap and water or a household cleaner such as 409, Windex or Simple Green. A pressure washer may be used. For best results only use the fan spray option and test a small inconspicuous area first.

For Persistent Stains

For more persistent stains, try an industrial-strength cleaner with a pressure washer or a 10% solution of bleach or vinegar. Test a small inconspicuous area first.
