Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple understated A good quality simple bin. Nice heavy lid with solid swing action. Easy to clean and get liners in and out of. Just what I was looking for as I was fed up with stainless steel bins looking fingerprinted and getting dents and the mechanisms going on peddle type bins. This is a no nonsense unpretentious bin for a family. 11 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best! I have had 2 of these for a couple of years and they are brilliant. So often the top of a swing bin is flimsy and sticks. This one is perfectly balanced and fits firmly, and the bin is a good space-saving shape. Easy to clean too. 24 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Product Very well designed, very robust. The top fits snugly yet lifts off easily when required. The flip lid is really well balanced, so it won't remain in the open position once you've finished, and it also comes out of the top nice and quickly for cleaning. You just can't help but feel that a lot of thought has gone into this bin. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the money Good looking, great lid action, practical and robust. 16 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have a happy wife. If you can get excited about a swing bin....then this is the one for you. Its brilliant, sturdy and such a convenient size. Great value for money plus my wife is happy, so a win win. 11 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by elegant and unobtrusive This black bin is sleek and made of good sturdy plastic which from experience I now prefer as it's silent, won't corrode or mark the flooring. The swing lid design is very user friendly. I'm not sure that I shall need to use plastic sacks as the rubbish for this bin is dry and not smelly - in my area all food/garden rubbish is kept separate for recycling. Again, being plastic, easy to wash anyway. I think it would be fun to have a choice of colours. 02 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality bin Good quality bin, fits nicely under worktop where a pedal bin wouldn't! 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful bin I have found this bin to be more user friendly than the touch bins. I have two children who find this bin easier to put rubbish in than our previous touch bin which broke after 6 months of purchase. The colour is great and suits our kitchen which is cream and black. It is also very easy to clean. Excellent purchase. 21 April 2015
