BINN’s eye-catching proportions almost make one forget that it is a convenient and easy-to-use trash can. Its subtle beauty is applicable to virtually all environments and public spaces. The concrete body and the galvanized powder-coated steel lid not only look pleasing, but also guarantee durability and abrasion-resistance. Due to its material and design, it is also highly resistant to vandalism and can be cleaned without any difficulty. The waste bin can be fixed to a designated place rather easily, at just one point. Drainage vent at the bottom.

VPI Concrete Design & Manufacture designs and creates advanced concrete furniture for public spaces. The company was founded by architects and landscape architects to invent a new integrity in design and technology of concrete products and their function in public spaces. In the factory we produce furniture that creates harmony between the needs of its users, the applied materials, the technology and the adequacy of the venue.
