In specific public places with large crowds, often security is a paramount concern. Since Australia’s initial response to terrorism threats in 2001, it has become increasingly apparent that terrorism in Australia has become a persistent and permanent feature of Australia’s security environment. In such a context, some organisations are reassessing their security approaches, and the balance to ensure any impact on customers in minimised.
This transparent public place bin was developed for an organisation, which in response to customer feedback, was seeking to reinstate their public place waste stations, whilst managing any associated security issues.
The station provides a dual stream waste bin, leveraging the flexible MultiSort lid range. This range is perfect for public place use with Australian standard colours, proven graphics and tailored apertures. The base is made of durable polycarbonate, and when partnered with clear plastic bin liners, provides easy visibility of waste items. This transparency is perfect for security purposes and also maintains a clean waste stream as users can easily identify the correct placement of their waste items.
