Round Pedal Bin
Round Pedal Bin
Mick Jagger's Favorite bin and my favorite bin to sing about at a Karoke night ( To the tune of "Brown Sugar.") "Round,” “round pedal, how come you trash so good?” “Round,” “round pedal, just like a trash bin should."
Who might use this bin
People who typically generate small amounts of refuse would use the smaller sizes, which hold 3 litres. People with larger amounts of daily refuse generation would obviously use the larger sizes, depending on space considerations, staffing levels, and whether the trash can is by the smoking area, in which case you will have no shortage of volunteers to go smoke a fag while they take out the rubbish. Hands free operation due to “step to open” lid/pedal combination.
Polypropylene plastic. Inner Bucket with handle. Sizes range from 3-40 Litres. Larger sizes- 91976- holds 6 litres of waste
