If you're starting out it's worth buying these, keeping the plastic cartridges then refilling them yourself. For £20 you can buy a roll of compatible liner on amazon that'll last you 6 months plus. Takes a couple of minutes to refill each one.

Totally agree, best bin I have ever bought and I have paid stupid money in the past
Says 4.5 L in the product specification weirdly
Out of stock
Bought the full grey version of this from wilko for £8 and have to say its the best bin ive bought, no need for a fancy electric auto opening one, also very easy to clean unlike stainless steel etc. Bought previously
I have this. Not perfect but decent for the price. Some of the comments about finicky lid mechanism are true, and if you pack the bag it becomes awkward to take out. Would still recommend for the price because most others in this price range look awful
Great bin. Had it for years no problems.
Have two of these, not the best bins but great price under 20 quid.
H How many problems can a bin possibly have? :/ (embarrassed)
Had one of these. The bag holding mechanism doesn't work, and it had all sorts of problems.
I think they may offer pastel shades if you ask nicely.
Our council versions are brown and look awful though
I wish my council did food waste recycling. Waste of space they are. :(
So do mine but this looks smaller with a click lid to keep in the utility room
Depending on your council. Mine provide these for free. Just to to login into your council tax account and apply for food recycling bin. Since they are upping the cost. Might as well make the most of the services.
I've got this. It takes three AA batteries - I found the model on a different website and found the dimensions there
Use rechargeable AAs in conjunction with these and you will save a packet over time (y). The (plastic) casing may also help to stave off corrosion. D cells seem like overkill on a bin lid! Ours (and this one) takes 4x rechargeable AAs and they last ages (the lid is obviously very light so it doesn't waste power) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0768TW9TB/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_QF13FNFB9WKJ13C0B4RQ?psc=1
Thanks for your quick and thorough reply. I think this one takes 4 -D- cells, so I’ll look into changing the power supply. I’ve only had a quick look at it , it seemed to have about 6 recessed screws? There is a lot of corrosion around the batteries which I’d don’t think is preventing the connection as the motor still makes a noise but I’ll clean them up just in case! Ill let you know how I get on!
I fixed one, not this brand. It had a similar motor to that you used to see in car radio casette decks driving a wedge shaped cam cog attached to a metal spindle. The design wasn't good, the cog was fixed to the spindle via a grub screw that had started to slip probably because corrosion at the ends of the spindle was causing it to stiffen up. I lightly sanded the spindle, lubricated with ACF50 and filed a small flat on the spindle to provide better grip for the grub screw. Not a job for the faint hearted but seeing as I was on my third sensor bin and none had lasted more than 3 years I thought it was time for a bit of redesign. Mine took 3 D cells, total 4.5v so while I was at it I converted it to take a pound shop lithium usb power bank as it was eating batteries and D cells aren't cheap. Quick tip: Use a tea bag composter as pretty sure it was the steam from putting teabags in a nearly full bin that caused condensation/corrosion.
I’ve got my mums sensor bin to look at, it’s not working! I think it makes a noise so motor working so I think it’s the mechanism is faulty! Has anyone got any experience of fixing one of these? Thanks in advance!

Softly, softly. This thoroughly modern white pedal bin gives any bathroom a contemporary feel. And it comes with a little luxurious touch. Press the pedal to pop up the lid and the slow-clos…
Cost of refill cartridges on these is ludicrous. We ended up just going back to nappy bags and chucking them in our normal bin.
Price matched on Amazon. You can also get it for free https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?ie=UTF8&node=21936375031 with a purchase of £20 worth of baby products, eg. wet wipes.
Good bin, I recommend refilling yourself rather than paying out a fortune on refills https://www.amazon.co.uk/400m-compatible-Angelcare-Equivalent-cardboard/dp/B0787MX7MM/ref=pd_aw_sbs_2/262-7408664-2003167?pd_rd_w=x5wjQ&pf_rd_p=7784be8a-6672-49c4-90c1-b5ddb21e84e7&pf_rd_r=2M00AX1VMTBDWV2M75AK&pd_rd_r=1798b11d-05ca-43c0-b3fd-3b69d754d730&pd_rd_wg=u2vcx&pd_rd_i=B0787MX7MM&psc=1

any recommendation of good quality bin bags for 50/60l with reasonable price (<20p per bag?)
That’s a load of rubbish 😋
I wouldn't buy any other. They actually stand by their 10 year guarantee. Iv had a new lid and an entirely new bin so far. So keep hold of your receipt
Like the earlier poster. I have had an equivalent Brabantia bin for the past 16 years and they have provided new catches and lids free of charge. Exceptional customer service and worth every penny. Voted hot.
I think the mentality to have when you post here is that if it benefits just one person, then it's a deal. Regardless of the temperature.
