How to get started
Investigate if and where you currently have disposal bins in toilets.
The first step to introducing disposal bins is to explore whether and where you currently have these in place and if they are adequate for all people who may need them regardless of the toilets that they may use. This will help you to assess the need for disposal bins across the toilets that you manage.
Determine where you will place the disposal bins
We’re suggesting that at least one disposal bin be placed in one cubicle in each set of male, female and unisex toilets so that people can access disposal bins in all toilets.
Explore future costs of having disposal bins placed in toilets
The next step will be to contact your existing provider and find out whether they have a bin in place for male product disposal bins.
Costs for disposal bins vary, a larger bin can cost anywhere between $120 and $540 per year with the maintenance fees included (which can occur monthly, fortnightly or weekly).
Some disposal bin providers are listed in the table below along with their websites which have further information.

If you provide toilet facilities for Staff and/or the Public, BINS4Blokes is a great way for your organisation to promote inclusion, equality and to provide environmentally responsible facilities.
Contact us for posters and stickers
Once you’ve adopted BINS4Blokes you need to make sure men know the bins are in place. Our posters are on this site here, and we can send you stickers for your toilets. We recommend:
