SafeWaste catches are fantastic. Been using one for several months and even if the bin has fallen over, the contents have not released because of the catch. Fantastic invention and everyone in a windy area should be made to use them.- SafeWaste user
I think it's a fantastic idea that couldn't have been invented soon enough. Such a simple design yet works so effectively. Well done!- SafeWaste user
I think your fastener for the bin is a great idea as I am fed up with other people's rubbish blowing into my property. I have used a bungee cord on windy days but is not user-friendly for the contractor and they also are not very durable. Your lid tie down attaches perfectly is easy to use and have just seen the contractor come and empty bin and they had no problems.- SafeWaste user
