Design HITSA

The COPENHAGEN litter bin with top opening features attractive workmanship and is designed for urban living. It has been designed and produced to the same high standard of quality characteristic of all our litter bins: with the COPENHAGEN we have created a robust and reliable litter bin made from strong materials with a design and finish that ensures it is ideally suited to the task and will stand up to many years of use.

The COPENHAGEN is our own design, developed in close collaboration with the City of Copenhagen, hence the name.

The first COPENHAGEN litter bins were installed in Copenhagen decades ago. Today this litter bin can be spotted in countless locations throughout the urban landscape of Copenhagen, often in combination with the classic, historical COPENHAGEN park bench. Over the years the COPENHAGEN has proved its worth and quality.  It is an extremely durable litter bin that effortlessly stands up to the rough treatment to be expected for such outdoor equipment.

Ease of use and maintenance with the COPENHAGEN litter bin

The COPENHAGEN not only makes things easy for local residents, it has also been developed with a strong focus on ease of use and maintenance. A variety of subtle design details make it easy for service staff to empty the bin. The top cover opens without a key, which saves strain on employees’ wrists when frequently emptying numerous bins. The inner container features a collar at the top, which is easy to grip when wearing work gloves.
