Top sensor bins for your kitchen

There are a number of reasons why you should opt for a sensor bin over a manual bin. Firstly, a sensor bin is far more hygienic as you don’t need to touch it in order to throw things away – ensuring that you don’t spread germs between surfaces.

Secondly, sensor bins make it very easy to dispose of rubbish and scrape off plates, as you don’t need to have a free hand in order to operate it.

Finally, a sensor bin will lock in odours and keep your kitchen smelling fresh, as the lid is never open for too long.
