  • What options are available on this metal clinical waste bin

    Choose your lid and pedal colour

    Choose from a range of clinical and domestic colour choices to show your chosen waste stream on the lid and pedal of the bin.

    Choose your body colour

    Once you have chosen your lid and base colour, choose which colour body you require. The plastisol body is available in white or mushroom, or you can opt for our transparent body for use with collecting recyclables.
