Plastic Storage Bins & Totes

Plastic storage bins are useful for storing a range of home, office and school documents, essential tools and everyday items. Many consumers prefer these bins with their enhanced durability over cardboard boxes, making them a smart choice for long-term storage. Staples carries a variety of quality options from Rubbermaid, BOX Partners, IRIS and other trusted brands to suit the needs of every home or business.

Stackable Plastic Storage Bins Help Businesses Condense and Organize Files
Businesses can create an efficient file management system by sorting and organizing documents into binders or folders, then storing them in stackable bins for quick archival and space-saving convenience. Containers are easily labeled and color-coded by department for future reference and may be re-purposed at any time.

See-Through Plastic Containers Make it Easy to Locate Specific Items
Parents and teachers find see-through bins provide an excellent storage solution for toys, clothing, kitchen items and seasonal decorations. Whether kept in a storage closet, garage or on a high classroom shelf, items are clearly visible from the outside, saving users time and effort locating a particular ingredient, game or textbook. Under-bed totes offer additional convenience for apartment dwellers, college students and those tight on bedroom space.

Dividers and Baskets Provide Convenient Desktop Access to Important Information
It's simple to maintain optimal office organization with color-coded bins and baskets, stackable plastic crates and storage cases. Several models feature divided compartments, so supplies, loose change and stationery items remain neatly stowed away. A centrally-located filing or storage system also helps students and employees stay on top of important assignments, incoming mail and product inventory.

Are Plastic Containers Acid-Free?
Many plastic storage bins are acid-free, although when storing sensitive documents, valuables and certain types of photographic materials, users may want to carefully wrap and enclose items in specially-designed acid-free storage boxes, then place them in the larger bin to ensure items remain in perfect condition.

Which Plastic Storage Bins Work Well for Outdoor Use?
Containers with rugged, weather-shielding designs are an ideal choice for camping and sporting events, transporting items to a construction site and storing gardening tools. These types of bins typically feature a protective seal around the container's perimeter to keep out moisture, dust and dirt, along with reinforced latched lids so items remain safe and secure. Some have wheels with heavy-duty pull handles for easy transport between locations.

How High can Plastic Bins be Safely Stacked?
Stacking height limits can vary, depending on the style of bin or tote and its intended use. Stackable parts bins and retail displays are usually supported by wire shelving or mounted to a wall unit, so users may have them stacked four or five rows high. Lightweight desktop bins and divided storage boxes may only support one or two rows of containers depending on their contents, although you may want to try different arrangements to see what works for your particular needs.

Some styles of medium and heavy-duty storage totes can be stacked up to six bins high, although those containing heavier items should be placed at the bottom for optimal safety and damage prevention. For long-term storage of tightly-packed containers, some experts recommend stacking pallet boards between rows to ensure supplies are reinforced by sturdy and level surfaces.

Many industrial facilities and manufacturing plants paint safety lines and other markings indicating maximum stacking heights and weights so employees avoid hazards due to improper storage practices.
