Stay up lid means two hands better than one

28 May 2014

Leafield Environmental has developed a new ‘stay up’ lid to help reduce food waste mess in canteens and kitchens.

A built in magnet is fitted at the base to keep the lid up so waste can be scraped or dropped directly into the bin using both free hands.

Leafield Business Development Manager Gary Mills said, “The idea was developed because of feedback from Loughborough University’s catering team. Together we developed the idea for a magnetised lid which would stay open making it easier to dispose of food cleanly and safely.”

“Loughborough went on to order 600 of the bins with a ‘stay up’ lid because the concept is faster, less messy, easier to clean, and much more practical in busy kitchen and restaurant environments.”

The new lid can be bought separately or together to fit the Envirobin Mini and Midi.

  • Stay up lid fits Envirobin Mini (55L) and Envirobin Midi (82L)
  • Industrial strength magnetic catch
  • Quiet closure mechanic
  • Label recess to minimise build of germs
  • Black base Envirobin Mini or Midi can be made from 100% recycled plastic
