Collapsible bin for paperhangers

Listed under Blog, Equipment, products Posted Oct 02 2008

When you are trimming wallpaper around a bannister, half way up a ladder, the last thing you are concerned about is where to put the off-cut pieces of paper. Bring on a collapsible bin!

Most tradesmen drop the bits on the floor and deal with the sticky litter later. The better paperhangers fold every little piece on itself to keep the paste from sticking to the floor, then chuck it out the way till they are finished. The even better ones drag a bin liner around, and try to throw their bits into the floppy bag, invariably missing. Some go one step further and rig up the bin liner in a cardboard box, so they have a better target to aim at.

To be super organised and professional, why not put a bin liner in your collapsible rubbish container and keep it close at hand when hanging wallpaper. You now have a great target to chuck those pesky bits of pasty paper into. The container is light but sturdy, and really convenient to transport in the van (it collapses down to almost nothing).

And to create a conversation piece for customers, have a sports team logo on it.
