SafeWaste Bin Latches

Trial participants wanted!

SafeWaste latches secure the recycling wheelie bin lid and prevents the lid from opening if the bin falls or blows over. The latch is attached to the lid of the bin and releases when the bin is emptied. All you need to do is re-set the latch again on the next kerbside collection day. The latches will help prevent litter blowing out of fallen bins and entering our community and environment.

We’ve purchase 100 SafeWaste latches and we’re asking for volunteers to participate in a trial to obtain a free latch and test it out for us. All you need to do is agree to use the latch and provide your contact details so we can contact you for feedback.

The latches are available to the first 100 people who come into the Council Offices in Cole Street and collect one. If you’d like more information about the latches or have any questions about the trial, please get in touch with us.

PLEASE NOTE – The trial is specifically for 140L recycling bins only not for garbage.

You can find out more about SafeWaste latches and videos on how to install them on their website –
