Distribution & Delivery

MGB has a dedicated "in-house" distribution management team that has been responsible for the delivery of over 5 million wheeled bins direct to households throughout the UK. Our unique distribution service allows us to deliver bins from our factory in Rotherham direct to the household, with minimal need for additional storage at the customers' depot.

Distribution Planning

Prior to the commencement of each distribution, our distribution team will survey the area to ensure that the most appropriate vehicles and staffing levels are used so that the most efficient and cost effective distribution is achieved for the customer. Our dedicated distribution crews will assemble the wheels and axles to the wheeled bin on street and deliver the bins to the householders' property. MGB can also deliver leaflets, calendars and collection day stickers, and offers a full scanning and database service which records the address that the bin has been delivered to.

Health & Safety

Health and safety is of paramount importance to MGB, and all the necessary method statements, risk assessments and safe systems of work are in place. In addition, our distribution crews are extremely experienced in the handling of wheeled bins, as we use the same crews, irrespective of where in the UK we are delivering bins.
