Good old pedal bins: why they’re still so popular

Here at Brabantia, pedal bins are kind of a classic. We’ve been making them since 1952 and they’re still hugely popular, but what is it about the good old pedal bin that makes it such a hit?

Everybody loves a hygienic waste bin

Let’s face it, waste bins are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, and nobody wants that in their home or place of work. The pedal bin’s hygienic design means that bacteria are contained within. You don’t need to touch it with your hands, so you can keep them fresh and clean and avoid all risks of cross-contamination. Just step on the pedal and throw in your waste. From food prep areas to hospitals, to homes, the hygienic pedal bin keeps you and yours safe and healthy. It’s also really handy when you’ve got a load of rubbish in your arms, plus you don’t have to worry about sticky finger marks or waste residue leaving unsightly stains.

“The lid functions well and helps prevent smells from spreading, and it is a far more hygienic bin than any other I have used.” – consumer review

 

A tight lid to prevent odours

Another reason pedal bins are so popular is the tight-fitting lid that helps to keep odours in check. Perfect in kitchens or washrooms. They are also a great choice for any public area on view to customers or staff. Many designs now have soft-closing lids and innovative hinge designs which open slowly no matter how hard the pedal is pressed. Great for saving your walls from over-enthusiastic waste disposers!

In the spotlight: the Pedal Bin newIcon

The newIcon pedal bin has everything you’d expect from Brabantia and more. Sleek beautiful design in an array of colours, easy to move, robust mechanisms for years of use and soft-closing, super-light pedal operation. What’s more, this hygienic waste bin is made from 40% recycled material and once you’re done, after many years of use, it’s 98% recyclable.
Your purchase also helps to support the Ocean Cleanup, ridding the world’s oceans of plastic.
