Key to Processes
The Knife Amnesty Bin has been specifically designed to offer maximum safety and encouragement for the surrender of knives, blades and other harmful weapons.
What is a knife amnesty?
A knife amnesty is a police driven initiative to get knives and other sharp weapons off our streets. During a knife amnesty, people can hand in their knives at designated locations without any repercussions.
How can a knife amnesty bin help?
A Knife Amnesty Bin is a safe and secure way to collect knives and other weapons, whilst ensuring that there can be no access to the contents. The 30 litre capacity can allow for collection of multiple knives before it needs to be emptied.
What is this knife amnesty bin manufactured from?
The Wybone Knife Amnesty Bin is manufactured from strong and durable, premium galvanised steel. The 2mm hot dipped galvanised steel ensures a secure manufacture and makes the bin difficult to damage; this unit is built to last!
How is this knife amnesty bin secure?
The Wybone Knife Amnesty Bin is manufactured with universal, anti-vandal padlock hasps to the door of the unit. This is so that a secure padlock can be fitted to the bin with no unwanted access. This system prevents break-ins using bolt croppers and the stainless steel rod hinges have five point welded tie sections and an anti-crowbar return to prevent unwanted access.
An internal baffle system and one way chute prevents anyone from removing items once inside.
How does the knife amnesty bin work?
Depositing knives securely could not be easier with this unit; using the chute operation to the front of the unit, once an item is surrendered and deposited inside, it cannot be retrieved without secure access to the chosen method of locking. Internal steel panels (baffle system) ensure the items fall securely into the waiting galvanised steel liner. The internal liner is fitted with a handle to the front, to make emptying easy and convenient, whilst ensuring no need to touch the contents.
A sloping top is built in to the design of this unit to prevent anti-social behaviours such as sitting or standing on the top of the unit or any unwanted items such as litter, being left on the lid.
Where should I put my knife amnesty bin?
Depending on your campaign, it is up to you where your Knife Amnesty Bin is placed. Many campaigns organise multiple bins to be placed at local police stations for security purposes.
What colour can I have my knife amnesty bin?
We’re happy to powder coat your Knife Amnesty Bin in any standard colour. Most of our customers opt for red bins to draw attention to their presence, however we have also provided them in black. We can even paint them in green if you prefer!
How do I install my knife amnesty bin?
How can I promote my knife amnesty bin?
We recommend including a poster frame on the front of your bin. This will allow you to post artwork / posters to display information about what to deposit and the campaign you are running. The poster frame makes it easy to interchange your artwork with each campaign.

We’d love to know all about your campaign, such as how many knives you’ve collected and what innovative ideas you’re using to dispose of your collected items. We were fascinated by Project Zao, which took place in Derbyshire and saw the creation of an angel sculpture from a 6 week knife amnesty. (Read more here: http://www.derbyshire.police.uk/Safety-advice/Personal-Safety/Knife-Amnesty-Project-Zao.aspx) If you want to tell us about your campaign, we’d love to talk to you.

What is the capacity of my knife amnesty bin?
The Knife Amnesty Bin has a 30 litre capacity to ensure all items can be deposited safely and securely – without any unwarranted access and also so that it can be safely emptied without becoming dangerous or too heavy for the person collecting.
How do I empty this knife amnesty bin?
Simply unlock your unit and access the contents by operating the front opening door. The internal galvanised steel liner includes a handle to the front, to enable you to pull it out and take it to a secure location for sorting / final disposal.
Alternative uses for your Knife Amnesty Bin
Did you know that you can use your bin for collecting more than just knives and weapons? The secure manufacture and chute system on the aperture ensures items can’t be retrieved once their deposited. If you’re working in a large organisation or warehouse and have an issue with theft, we recommend using this bin for a theft amnesty – users can deposit their stolen goods before leaving the premises with no repercussions. The contents are secured by an ant-vandal padlock which can only be unlocked by an authorised member of staff to return the goods.
