Gravity Bin Lock
With refuse rates on the ever increase and many waste management companies adopting a pay by weight waste management system the last thing anyone would want is having to pay for other peoples waste.
Some householders and businesses have taken to using chains and padlocks to address rising problems with fly tipping. However this makes for a tiresome process whenever you wish to add rubbish to the bin.
These German made gravity bin locks can be opened and locked again by simply inserting the key once installed.
What's more, the bin collectors don't even need a key to open them because once the bin is placed on the tipper truck the lock will open and lock again automatically once they have been emptied.
If you live in a pay by weight local authority area you are probably overpay when rain gets into the bin and make the refuse soggy. The gravity bin lock helps to counter this issue as it will only open when it is turned 90 degrees
