Waste Bin


Brink Industrial B.V., Hoogeveen, Netherlands

In-house design

Peter Solbach, Reinier den Boer, Wenden, Germany

Red Dot
The mobile, spherical Bubble waste bin has a capacity of 360 litres. It offers maximum volume but minimal surface and can replace up to six conventional waste containers. This bin is particularly suitable for locations where underground waste disposal systems cannot be installed. The opening is divided in the middle to prevent the disposal of bags filled with domestic waste. The bins are emptied at long intervals by suction using street-cleaning vehicles. This saves money and also improves CO₂ emissions. The robust, stainless steel body is highly durable and recyclable.

Statement by the jury

»The Bubble waste bin’s optimised functionality and unusual appearance, which creates distinctive highlights in public spaces, are a winning combination.«
