About Econix

Econix was set up to develop a new generation of Non-sharp clinical waste containers which were better for the environment at a cost-effective price. Since our inception the business has grown and we are now a leading supplier of clinical waste containers to the health, laboratory and research, and university sectors.

We now sell our product – the Bio-bin® – all over the world, including the USA, Australia, Europe and the Far East.

The fold flat design of much of the range of Bio-bin® product makes it very space efficient to store and the 96% paper construction makes Bio-bin® an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic waste containers. Each bin has been developed with a Bio-matt™ in the bottom which has been specifically designed to soak up any excess liquid from the waste in the base of the bin and turn it into a gel, whilst the waterproof coating prevents any leakage.

Bio-bin® is available in the all waste segregation colours set out in the Department of Health memorandum 07:01 Safe management of healthcare waste and is UN 3291 approved for disposal of clinical and offensive waste. The UN certification means that the Bio-bin® must pass drop and stack tests without breaking open.
