What is a dump bin?
Whilst ‘dump bins’ is a well-known term in the Point of Sale and display merchandising industry, the term is very confusing the first time you hear it! See our glossary of terms for the ‘dictionary definition’, or read on to learn more about dump bins, including what they are used for, and where and when they are the right choice, compared with other forms of merchandise display.
Retail Dump Bins
Printed cardboard retail dump bins are a popular choice to display certain kinds of merchandise.
Essentially retail dump bins are a large open top box, sometimes with an open front or front cut-out too, and the product is ‘dumped’ loose inside.
They allow prominent placement within retail shopping isles, and with a fully branded surround, they have a huge printed area to advertise the goods inside.
Sometimes these are attached to pallets, and if so, are sometimes known as ‘pallet wrap stands’.

Trade Shows, Trade Counters, and Exhibitions
Magazine dump bins make excellent brochure display units at exhibitions, and also can be used to display catalogues in a trade-counter environment, or free booklets or leaflets in a public venue.
The catalogues are stacked neatly at a convenient height, and a printed header attracts attention, provides information, and encourages people to pick up a copy.
Typically brochure display bins have a raised cardboard floor inside, allowing the magazines or brochures or catalogues to be accessed easily from around waist-height, even when nearly empty.
Our catalogue dump bins are custom made and fully printed on all sides, helping you to capture the attention of passing potential customers, and advertise a strong brand message.
And as a practical and effective finishing touch, simply printing something like ‘All gone! Contact [your telephone number] to request your brochure’ or similar on the base of the internal compartment is handy should these brochure holders ever run out.
