This new bin, which was designed in association with a facilities management provider, is made with a built-in anti-microbial additive which provides an effective barrier against the growth of bacteria, moulds and fungi to minimise the spread of infection.
The bin can collect up to three different waste streams such as landfill waste, mixed recyclables and food or clinical waste in a compact 90 litre unit. The central lid is operated by a foot pedal which means users never need to touch the bin with their hands when depositing waste: wheels make it easy to transfer to central collection points for emptying. The tilting mechanism at the back of the unit pulls down to simplify the removal and replacement of bags and is easily dismantled for deep cleaning.
The â€˜Anti-Microbialâ€™ Envirobin is currently being rolled out across the NHS Grampian and the NHS Lothian estates,achieving total customer satisfaction with the NHS staff, the patients and the cleaning team.
The new bin is also attracting attention as a popular recycling choice for other sectors concerned about maintaining high levels of cleanliness, such as food production and catering industries.
â€œWe are constantly evolving our product portfolio to meet the changing needs of our customers.â€
The new unit is also available without the anti-microbial additive and forms part of the growing Envirobin collection of stylish and multifunctional recycling units designed and manufactured in the UK.
