A simple rubbish bin with a lid that swings shut after being pushed open.
Could these contraptions possibly be the most versatile, spell-binding format to dispose of readily-available general waste!?
While they may be simple, that’s no reason to scoff at their reliability.

In this post, we’re going to list off a few of our favourite swing bins to help you decide the right one for you.

Plastic 50L Swing Top Bins

If you’ve noticed the different colour bin lids, these are representative of the colour coding system. The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BISC) created the colour code system to avoid the problem of bacteria cross contaminating different areas.

These are represented by:

Blue – General areas such as offices, low-risk areas.
Red – Washroom, toilets and bathroom floors.
Green – Kitchens and eating areas.
Yellow –  In hospitals, this would be clinical and treatment areas. Otherwise, ordinary businesses use this for washbasins & washroom surfaces.


Swing bins like the plastic 50-litre ones are made to complement the colour code system. The lids rotate freely, so you don’t feel any pressure while using them.
