Case Study:

North Bristol NHS Trust

North Bristol NHS Trust

In 2015, 90% of large and 75% of small UK businesses experienced a data breach according to the Government’s information security breaches survey. Keeping confidential information secure isn’t something that should be taken lightly, and should be considered both a personal and business necessity.

Confidential waste is defined as any personal information that can be used to identify you or your customers; for example, a bank statement is confidential information that you need to dispose of correctly.

North Bristol NHS Trust approached us back in 2014 to design a bespoke metal confidential waste bin for their prestigious new Brunel Building at Southmead Hospital.

Esther Coffin Smith, Sustainable Development at Southmead Hospital told us why they chose us here at Wybone. “The Trust needed an all-metal bin to satisfy Fire Advisor recommendations and chose Wybone for this based on a history of providing the Trust with high quality, reliable bins.”

We worked alongside both the Trust and their confidential waste contractor Shred-It to design a recycling bin that met their security, and health and safety requirements.

We’re passionate about everything we do and offer a flexibility rarely seen in our industry, enabling us to create something unique for our customers.

We designed the WSC/112 Confidential Waste Bin, which is fitted with an internal chute that directs paper into the awaiting bag with a metal deflector that stops items from being retrieved by hand or other instrument. The 112 litre capacity is ideal for securely storing large amounts of paper, with hooks on the inside to hold the internal bag in place.

“Over 180 consoles were delivered to the Trust as part of kitting out the new hospital building and the Trust has been 100% satisfied with them to date.”

Their bespoke design is now available to buy on our website. What are you waiting for? Click here to view the product.
