These hands-free, cleanroom-friendly receptacles provide the perfect solution to waste disposal challenges. Fabricated of chemical-resistant polypropylene or 304 stainless steel, these BioSafe waste receptacles feature 100% stainless steel hardware, eliminating contamination common with chrome-plated components that can chip and corrode. They provide years of clean service in the most contamination-sensitive environments.

The foot pedal lets an operator dispose of trash without touching the receptacle, and the tight-fitting lid safely contains waste. Soft-Close lids eliminate loud noise and minimize turbulent airflow as the lid closes.

All BioSafe Waste Receptacles come with one rigid, reusable liner made of low-density polyethylene that allow easy waste removal. Liners are treated with an EPA-registered compound for additional protection. Legs raise the receptacles 0.75" (19 mm) to provide air circulation and minimize particle accumulation. These receptacles comply with OSHA standards for cleanliness and waste containment.

Note: BioSafe waste receptacles are not intended for containment of radioactive waste. Each receptacle comes with a rigid plastic liner; replacement liners are packaged one-per-carton (ordering information below).
