Stop Litter Leaving Your Bin

SafeWaste: a simple strap that keeps bin lids closed.

Often something small can make a big difference. Case in point: SafeWaste wheelie bin straps. These clever straps keep kerbside wheelie bins securely closed until collection time. This simple invention minimises the amount of litter that spills from bins and ends up in our stormwater drains and ultimately our streams, rivers and oceans. They thwart the litter leakage caused by windy weather, over-filling and animals, making for tidier streets and less environmental damage. These cost-effective, easy to install straps also auto-release when a bin is in position over collection trucks, preventing lids from opening early and rubbish spilling out en route to the truck. Do your bit to prevent litter, sort out bin straps for your home or business today.
