Waste bins help maintain good hygiene and are to be found in every kitchen. They come in different sizes and one can be found to fit most spaces. They are all made out of materials which are durable and easy to clean. Modern day designs fall into three categories, those with a release mechanism which is operated ether by gently depressing the lid or by the operation of a foot pedal. The touch lid bin when operated springs open silently to allow access to the bin liner inside. Touch lid bins are made out of stainless steel and are of sturdy construction. Finally the cheapest options are bins where the lid is simply removed and replaced by hand or the swing bin. Swing bins have a swinging flap in the lid which is pushed to one side by the hand as the waste is deposited. Another option which has become popular within the fitted kitchen, are bins which are attached to the base unit door. When the door is opened a simple mechanism automatically lifts the lid.
