About the 42 Litre Mental Health Bin

The Mental Health Bin with 42 litre capacity is a purpose-designed waste unit for use in hospitals and clinical settings where added safety and security is required.

This sackholder is at home in mental health facilities, with many features that offer superior security whilst still maintaining a stylish design that fits comfortably in wards, patient rooms and clinical areas.

All moving parts on this product are enclosed to secure any possible ligature points and avoid visibility & access to the internal waste bag. The sackholder functions through the foot pedal operated chute to ensure rubbish can’t be retrieved

Please be aware that due to this being a security unit, capacity in the chute system is limited, all waste must be condensed down where possible, and should not exceed 30cm x 17cm x 9cm
