The most popular size of bin for public use is the 240lt bin, made to take most standard 240lt wheelie bins; this bin size allows large amounts of sharps waste to be collected. T The features of the 240lt bin are:
- Hidden locking system, the lock is located under the bottom of the door to prevent vandalism.
- Three point locking system, the door is held closed at three different points to prevent anyone from jemmying the door open. Cheaper Bins use padlocks that are easy to vandalise and open.
- This Disposafit bin has a large one way chute that takes most sharps bins used by Needle Exchanges and Hospitals. The chute internally is smooth to prevent anything placed into the bin from catching and blocking the chute. Be aware that cheaper Bins have internal hinge bolts which can catch items and can easily be undone.
