42 Litre Metal Hands Free Sackholder

Subtotal (excluding delivery)


This 42 litre metal sackholder is manufactured from premium quality, corrosion resistant galvanised steel and all metal fixings. The body of this sackholder is manufactured from Plastisol (plastic coated steel), or alternatively can be fitted with a transparent body for recycling.

If you require a sackholder manufactured with all plastic parts instead, take a look at our Capsule II 42 Litre Sackholder.

This sackholder is foot pedal operated. The user simply presses the foot pedal to lift the lid so that they can deposit their waste without any skin contact. The hands free frame is fitted to this sackholder to stop users from being able to open the lid by hand.

This sackholder is designed to fit a 42 litre sized sack.

This Metal Sackholder is manufactured to strict standards and conforms to HTM 05-03 Managing Healthcare Fire Safety regulations as set out by the Department of Health. Our closed body sackholders have been independently tested by Exova Warrington Fire Research and we also use Class ‘O’ fire rated Plastisol bodies which meet the strict regulations as set out by the British Board of Agrement.

This sackholder is white as standard, with a choice of lid options available to support the safe management of healthcare waste segregation.

  • Choose white to keep your bin all the same colour and define your waste stream with the bag or vinyl stickers.
  • Choose yellow for Category A Hazardous Waste which is sent for incineration, such as sharps that are contaminated with drugs.
  • Choose orange for Infectious Waste, which is also sent for incineration but includes items such as dressings from infected wounds or items that have been in contact with infectious bodily fluids.
  • Choose green for food waste or mixed recycling.
  • Choose black for domestic waste.
  • Choose yellow with tiger stripe for offensive waste which is sent to deep landfill. This includes items such as colostomy bags, urine bags and incontinence pads.
  • Choose violet for Cytotoxic / Static Waste that is sent for incineration such as hormones and specific drugs.

To empty the sackholder, use the foot pedal to lift the lid of the unit and pull the frame of the lid upwards to release the bag. Simply lift the bag from the top of the unit to empty and replace with a new bag. Fold the sides of the bag over the edges of the bin and pull the frame down to hold it in place again. Release the pedal to put the lid back down.The Removable body aids emptying and allows the body of the unit to be completely removed to take out the waste bag.

This metal sack holder features a leakproof tray to catch any leaks from bag punctures or an overfilled bin.

Choose your lid and base colour

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

Choose optional vinyl lettering

You can also choose to have optional vinyl artwork to the top of lid to specify ‘CLINICAL WASTE ONLY’ or ‘DOMESTIC WASTE ONLY’. Alternatively, add our magnetic waste labels to the top of your bin to interchange the waste stream.

Choose a soft closing lid

To ensure a soft and quiet close, add our soft closing lid option to this bin. The mechanism to enable this feature is a gas strut added to the back of the bin which stops the lid from slamming down. Please note that this feature cannot be retrofitted to the fixed body sackholder once it has been manufactured; this needs to be included at the point of purchase.

Choose a wheelchair ramp

For areas that require special access, we can also fit a wheelchair ramp to this unit to enable users to roll over the pedal to open the bin.

This sackholder has been specifically developed for use with clinical and domestic waste. We have been manufacturing sackholders since 1973 and we’ve held the contract for the NHS framework since 1998, so you can be assured that these bins are fit for purpose!

As with all Wybone sackholders, this clinical waste bin is coated with anti-microbial paint to reduce any risk of harmful bacteria spreading on the surface of the bin. This anti-bacterial feature comes as standard with our sackholders and uses silver-ion antibacterial coating to absorb and destroy harmful bacterium.

This sackholder features easy, wipe-clean surfaces in order to adhere to infection control guidelines.  To effectively clean this sackholder, we recommend hot soapy water is used – no need for harsh chemicals!

This 42 litre Metal Sackholder offers a large capacity unit for areas such as washrooms, busy patient areas and piercing stations. Integrated castors are built into the base of the unit for ease of manoeuvrability and rubber feet are fitted to the base to stop any marking of walls and floors.

This Metal Sackholder is available in three sizes. You can also choose our 28 Litre Metal Hands Free Sackholder or our 80 Litre Metal Sackholder depending on the volume of waste you are collecting and the frequency that the bins will be emptied. We also offer this bin in a ‘mobile’ version, which allows you to take the bin wherever it is needed. Take a look at our 80 Litre Metal Mobile Sackholder.

We are happy to offer discounts on this bin for purchases of five or more units. Send us an email with your requirements to to be issued with a discount code before you purchase.
