Hi all

We have just managed a COVID-19 outbreak at our Brompton Aged Care Site two weeks ago.
We procured 45L plastic pedal bins
These were easily sanitised and we were able to place laminated ‘clinical waste’ signage on the bin lid which was supplied by Aspen Medical First Responder
We had no issue with breakages or sturdiness.
The bin size (45L) allowed us to use 50L clinical waste bag and then tie off easily when full.
When doffing PPE, workers could easily discard and drop dirty PPE items in the bin due to the width of the bin opening.
The lidded option also meant that non-clinical waste was not incorrectly placed in the bin.
Only issue we encountered was the type/brand of pedal bin we ordered was not delivered assembled.

Hi All,

I have found the stainless steel bins hard to keep clean – leaving marks and starting to rust due to regular cleaning and disinfecting.
The plastic peddle bins are easier to keep clean and the better quality (more expensive) brands last longer and are more sturdy.

Warm regards

Hi all,

In our last independent infection control audit it was requested that we maintained stainless steel peddle bins to maintain effective infection control.

Thankyou Helen,

I don’t understand why Accreditation auditors are going on about pedal bins then??

Hi all

We experienced the exact same dilemma through multiple outbreaks, but finally settled on the no lid option during outbreaks. This allows for safe and effective disposal of PPE without having to touch and contaminate the lid. Pedal bins inevitably break fairly easily and the damaged lid becomes a source of contamination very quickly and for this reason we have moved away from them.
We used a variety of garden bins (large/sturdy/easy to clean) from Bunnings!
We were supported and advised by all agencies in Victoria (VACRC, PHU, ADF, Auzmat and Aspen Medical) to pursue this option.

Kind regards,

Hi would anyone have any information on the types of bins suitable for discarding of PPE. I have looked at many infection control guides but none mention types of bins.

As a small facility with limited resources we have generally used bins with a swing lid ( then the lids go missing!) though this way rubbish is easier to discard! and we also have pedal operated bins but I find their life is short in comparison to the cost!.
Auditors from the Accreditation Agency have said best practice was the use of pedal bin. Infection control officers who audited my facility from the local health district told me bins with no lids was better but have not been able to provide written evidence either. While doing the Foundations course one of the film clips produced by the Tasmanian Government showed PPE being discarded into a bin without a lid. Does that mean for training its ok but in other situations it’s not??

Looking forward to any replies.
