Bin Lid Latch

Stop rubbish escaping from your bins

Prevent animals from eating your rubbish and waste from spilling into the waterway and streets with a bin lid latch. 

Mornington Peninsula residents can FREELY pick up bin lid latches from the Hastings, Mornington or Rosebud office. 

Latches are easy to use and install. Not only does the latch stop rubbish from escaping when tipped over, it also enables residents to secure bin lids and prevents animals from accessing rubbish. Bin lid latches auto releases when emptied into the rubbish trucks.
