Swiss Public Element Designers Burri know that waste is serious business. Built on expert knowledge accumulated in more than 100 years of craftsmanship, the Burri Public Bin waste management system is made from 3mm stainless steel and sheer human ingenuity. For removing the waste, unlock the can with a Swiss precision garbage key, so the weight of its contents will pull it forward, slowed by a gas cushioned cylinder. The can will stop tilting once it has reached its optimal unloading postion, and relock when pushed back into upright. Say, did you really think any old bucket would do? [Via]

BURRI Public Bin (patent) provides the functional design for versatile deployment in parks and in the urban context. Public Bin can be opened easily from both sides. Thanks to an adjustable cushioning cylinder the bin tilts slowly into the removal position due to its high dead weight (3 mm stainless steel/CNS).
The inner container can be removed and emptied easily. The container locks automatically when pushed back. In order to separate waste, combinations of 2, 3 or 4 bins and even the inclusion of dog waste bag dispensers on the same supporting tube is possible. Public Bin can be mounted simply on the wall or onto asts. Design, material and surfaces reduce upkeep to a minimum.
