Underground Waste Systems. To make larger waste bins more accessible, the semi-underground bins act like icebergs with the majority of the space underground leaving an attractive top with access to the bags and litter up to a staggering 5 m cubed. Used extensively in Europe.

We have both underground and semi-underground bins for more space above ground and less emptying.

The BAGIO products are the perfect solution for locations with high quantities of waste in parks or service areas for example. BAGIO bins offer an invisible large fill volume and a comfortable height for the user. The weight of the waste and gravity automatically compress the waste and reduce its volume.

Infrequent emptying saves labour costs. The eco-friendly standard version of the waste system comes without print and decoration.

Different colours and designs are available on request. This underground waste system is highly efficient and modern, with a clever bag system instead of a solid inner container. 

The bags are made from robust and recyclable polypropylene. The relatively low weight does not require special trucks for emptying, a standard truck with a crane is sufficient.(Image below for clarification)
