Contemporary and versatile the 50 Litre Bin 'Original' stainless steel Autobin has been crafted in a timeless classic shape making it ideal for use in the home, office or professional environments.
Using the latest motion-activated infrared sensor the bin helps reduce the spread of germs and cross-contamination by eliminating the need for any human touch with the lid and will quickly trap any odours from escaping.
It utilises a patented infrared sensor to open and close the lid automatically when the user is with ten inches and will remain open for up to five seconds or when the user moves out of range. The top of the range sensor is built in with a 'power saving' feature that extends the life of the batteries.
Should the user need to keep the bin open for longer periods such as when scrapping large quantities of waste, there is a manual override button that will keep the lid in an open position until the button is pressed into the closed position.
The bin is fitted with a retainer ring that is specially designed to hold bin liners securely in place and stop them from slipping into the bin or sagging against the bin wall.
Another advantage of the retainer ring is that it makes changing the bin bag a lot quicker and less of a chore.
The premium brushed stainless steel exterior of the bin is made to eliminate fingerprints, smudges and smears on the side of the bin, keeping your bin looking cleaner for longer. Ideal for the home, office and fast-moving environments such as medical facilities, restaurants and kitchens.

In the case of the AutoBin it’s so much better than a peddle bin as you can approach the bin with one hand of rubbish, or even two, and you don’t have to carefully position yourself so that you can accurately press a foot peddle. Literally, as you get close to the lid it opens ready for you to easily drop your handful or two of bits into the bin. The opening is big enough for typical kitchen waste and general items.
I have the 50l model so the inner bag doesn’t need changing often. The retaining ring makes it easy to secure a standard bin liner and the bin shape design means the bag doesn’t cling to itself. When you put a new bag in it looks like this is not the case but as if fills the bag becomes the size of the bin.
Being stainless steel it looks good too, all that’s needed is the occasional wipe with a damp paper towel using a good clear kitchen cleaner. While not too heavy it’s substantial enough to take the odd knock.
If I had a bigger kitchen I’d use the recycling AutoBins now available. A very small countertop AutoBin might be a good idea to replace the inside food waste one the council supplied before adding to the outside food bin.
I’m lucky enough to have a local council that no longer buries non-recyclable waste but reclaims metals and burns the rest to make electricity emitting no harmful byproducts - all independently monitored with the locals just sometimes seeing a few white clouds and no smell.
