Wybone clinical waste bin promises to reduce spread of infection 

February 1, 2018

As flu season continues to grip the country, Wybone have introduced a clinical waste bin which promises to perform even better than before, reducing the spread of infection.

The Capsule II All Plastic Sackholder compliments Wybone’s existing range, which began production in 1973. The firm is this year marking its 20th anniversary of supplying of sackholders to the NHS.

Wybone’s easy-clean range includes metal, hybrid (plastic and metal) and capsule units. The capsule has been further developed to incorporate a plastic pedal and body with no metal components to deliver an all-plastic unit – the Capsule II.

Managing director Richard Cooper used the expertise of NHS staff to develop the Capsule II and believes customers are at the forefront of product design, saying, “Working with customer feedback was an important step in the design process of our fully plastic sackholder; this enabled us to make minor adjustments to help the unit perform better in operational environments. We encourage our customers to request a sample and welcome their feedback.”

The Capsule II clinical waste bin's key features include: wybone clinical waste

  • ideal for sensitive areas such as operating theatres

Richard adds, “We’ve invested heavily in this new Capsule II and taken the time to understand the requirements of our customers. We believe we have brought a stylish and high quality product to market that offers a greater protection from cross infection threats. The removable body and leak proof tray enables the unit to be cleaned easily, thoroughly and quickly. The one-piece hinge and handle is devoid of joints to stop any bacterial ingress. The units are available to suit 28, 42 and 80 litre sack sizes and with a choice of yellow, black, orange and white components. We’ve introduced a Click and Change lid system that can be quickly changed with minimal tool requirements.”

The lid and base are available in a wide range of colours – including yellow, orange, black and white – to aid the segregation of clinical waste and ensure correct disposal. 

The sackholders are designed and manufactured by Wybone’s in-house team in south Yorkshire, so both small and large orders can be fulfilled quickly and efficiently and every bin is quality checked before leaving the factory.
