‘Taylor-made’… Mark IV Continental Container Revealed

Drawing upon its heritage, waste management solution provider Taylor, part of the Impact Environmental Group (IEG), has bolstered its market-leading range with the launch of the new and improved Continental Mark IV container.

In developing the best-in-class collection, over forty years since the launch of its Mark I container, the long-established firm has worked closely with customers and industry experts to respond directly to the requirements of the sector. Supporting Taylor’s wider product range, the new Mark IV Continental family which includes, 660ltrs, 700ltrs and 1100ltrs compliments an overall offering that spans from 500ltrs to 1700ltrs.

Driven by innovation, the Mark IV Continental container is built to last. The new containers offer a superior 1.7mm thick container base for additional corrosion resistance and robustness, and a rodent-proof drain plug situated at the front of the container for ease of access to the container’s improved drainage system. In addition to enhanced castor brackets to minimise stress points, highly durable castors and internal bash plates for reinforcement, the frontal receiver benefits from seven ribs for additional strength. The robustness of the container, alongside its readiness to refurbish, solidifies the firm’s commitment to the circular economy and its drive to reduce not only its own carbon impact, but its customers’ too. Danish-style handles, as standard, allow ease of operation.

Notably, the flagship Continental range is manufactured to the recognised European EN840 standard, giving customers confidence in both product quality and safety, delivering what the firm believes to be a great value product.

Mark Jenkins, UK and Ireland Sales Director at IEG EMEA commented: “With over 1.8 million units sold over the last forty years plus, and used by local authorities and private sector contractors across the length and breadth of the UK, we know a thing or two about containers. In our opinion, the Continental container remains the undisputed benchmark for waste and recycling containers. We are proud to introduce to the market this latest innovation which addresses the ever-evolving sector demands, by providing market-leading quality at a price point which we believe is competitive in the marketplace.
