To meet the growing demand for clean and efficient food waste collection by the food industry Leafield Environmental has developed the anti-microbial SteriBin, a unique, easy to clean, pedal operated recycling bin with a ‘no touch lid’.


The 90L capacity SteriBin has a sleek and smooth design which allows integral labelling and has no hidden holes or crevices where dirt and germs can collect. An anti-microbial additive provides an extra barrier against the growth of harmful bacteria.

The SteriBin was originally designed to meet the cleanliness and infection control regulations of the NHS. The anti-microbial additive has been proven to reduce harmful species of bacteria such as MRSA, E.Coli and Listeria.

The SteriBin is ideal for general recycling and the safe disposal of food waste as the foot pedal operation means users never need to touch the lid with their hands. The sleek and smooth design allows integral labelling with no hidden holes or crevices where dirt and germs can collect. The innovative SteriBin even has wheels and a pull along handle for easy transit to central collection points.

SteriBin is ideal for collecting food waste because the foot pedal mechanic means users never need to touch the bin with their hands making it easier to scrape waste directly into the bin.

Leafield Environmental MD Phil Maddox said: “Businesses are realising that as well as saving money through more effective food handling, safe and hygienic food waste collection can also be a valuable commodity rather than just an inconvenient cost.

“As opportunities increase to divert food waste to sustainable technologies such as energy from anaerobic digestion (AD) and production of organic fertilisers, waste management costs will begin to fall.”

SteriBin can be dismantled and cleaned thoroughly in just 8 minutes from start to finish and the back tilting mechanism pulls down for swift bag changeover. An optional eco-friendly washable plastic liner is also available for the increasingly popular ‘bag free’ alternative.

The SteriBin triple can collect up to three different waste streams such as food waste, general waste and mixed recyclables in one compact unit.
