Pedal operated bins are an effective, hands free form of waste management.
The most popular reason pedal bins are chosen over a conventional bin is because of their hands free operation. Simply press down on the pedal attached to the front of the bin with your foot to activate the mechanism, opening the lid ready for the disposal of waste materials.
Hygienic and easy to use
The hands free operation means that using these pedal bins is far more streamlined than a traditional bin. You can carry more in your hands to dispose of and remove the bin liner with more ease once it is full. This functionality is also a more hygienic solution to waste disposal. As your hands do not need to make contact with the bin at any point you come into contact with far less bacteria, an especially useful feature in areas with a lot of different people using the bins.
In our range of pedal bins we offer a variety of configurations. Our most basic bins are just a single container, available in varying sizes to suit the required capacity of your workplace. As with most of the range, these are often made from a durable plastic but there are a few metal options available. We also offer a Duro Pedal Bin which has three separate compartments within the main container. This allows you to encourage recycling by assigning each container colour to a different recyclable item. If you need a larger capacity from recycling pedal bins take a look at our bins with coloured lids. These are also an effective way of segregating waste and improving the recycling in your workplace.
