We had bin locks fitted recently in Green Point area and there has been a vast improvement on bin day – it is cleaner and no over spilling bins. Wish all the homes and especially apartment blocks would have them as well.

Had mine since January and very happy. Lock has never failed us. Best part is how clean our bin stays as dumpster divers no longer rip open our trash and leave our bin & surrounding area littered. Oh, and they are very aware of what Bin Guard is and it’s purpose. And since my wife works from home, she no longer has to tolerate rude, aggressive dumpster divers going through our bin on trash day.

An update for you on the BinGuard locks!…100% successful!!… A much cleaner, more hygienic and vagrant free operation. Above all it is a much cleaner and more efficient way of garbage collection!!

Binguard locking system was designed to fit in with local bylaws dealing with waste and waste collection. We have had no objection from major municipalities in this regard. Please verify this with your refuse collection service.
Select which colour cable is on your Binguard lock. These cable options are not wheelie bin design specific (handle or no handle). Follow the video link above for installation instructions.
Waste wise Binguard empowers individuals and neighbourhoods to effortlessly contribute towards local and national goals of limiting and controlling waste. It offers environmentally conscious users a solution to responsible waste management, knowing that household waste is handled in a contained manner from their premises to the waste disposal facility.
Keep Binguard unlocked while using the refuse bin on your premises.
Lock Binguard when putting the bin out on refuse collection day. The gravity lock will open should the bin be lifted and rotated upside down in a similar way that the refuse truck mechanism does.
A self-activating gravity lock which keeps the lid secured, releases automatically when the bin is lifted onto and tilted by the refuse removal truck. This allows the lid to open and the bin to be emptied without the operator’s intervention.
If you are a community group that can arrange a group purchase and installation, contact us by email.
Binguard acknowledges that the presence of uninvited individuals rummaging through municipal refuse bins on refuse collection day is the manifestation of a much bigger social challenge in societies worldwide. We furthermore acknowledge that this is to be approached with consideration and respect, especially towards the individuals concerned.
However, the fact that the activities of these individuals bring with them new challenges – in this case environmental and security concerns in neighbourhoods – is something that cannot be conveniently ignored. This too should be acknowledged and approached with good sense in order to find solutions.
