Brabantia, bin liners

Post by Zeenit » Thu, 07 Aug 2008 10:24 pm

Sorry Folks to ask something so silly but I really like my bin. I need to know if I can find Brabantia products in Sg and more to the point how expensive are they. I have a 50L bin.

Saint will buy anyone a beer on my behalf who gives sensible answers..........he promised :P
or maybe Durain, I am getting forgetfull with all my leaving drinks parties.

Maybe they're going to live in a landed property :P

But I think you're right she'll just end up chucking it down the chute :lol:

Zeenit - you may be in luck. There is a kitchen store at the bottom of United Square (adjacent to Goldhill Plaza). I was poking around there a few days ago and this place is closing down. I am almost certain I saw Brabantia bins and other products there.

Hope this helps, P

Why can't you just bring yours along with you? Or are you just bringing a suitcase?

Takashimaya, OG and Home-Fix DIY has them, but not too sure about 50L and bin liners for this size? Prices are relatively expensive, even the small bins costs like $80.

Brabantia bin liners are available at loads of places eg hardware shops, Homefix and the like, dept stores like Tangs, Takashimaya and Robinsons, Howards Storage World - all over really. To be honest you will not find an indoor 50L bin very useful. It's so hot that rubbish starts to smell quite quickly and you will empty the bin long before it is full. If you are in a condo, you will have a rubbish chute and a 50L bag is too big to fit. In landed properties you will have a wheelie bin in the street outside which is emptied daily, 7 days a week. We have a 20L brabantia and I empty it more than once a day on average. If you want a smaller Brabantia bin, buy it overseas - they are extortionate here. Pack of binliners for my 20L is about $8.50 per pack. Alteratively I use supermarket bin bags as liners - smaller than the "official" ones but about the right size to empty before the contents stink out my kitchen.

I saw them in CK Tangs this afternoon. Quite a large display of them including the sensor lidded 50l one. The normal 50l one in chrome, well, after I picked up my gaping jaw off my chest I figure I can find better things to do with just under $500 SGD than buying a trashcan. :o

Just checked it out online and you can buy the chrome one for $219 USD which is $280SGD. $200 markup? Ouch!

I looked for the bag refills but the only ones I could see were for "C" which are either the 20 or 30l bags. Would have to agree with skye on the 50l size. You would have a smelly kitchen for sure if you wait for it to get filled before dumping living in this climate. (Oh, the "C" bags were something like $12 or $14.50 per packet). Course everything in CK Tangs is more expensive than most anywhere else.

Thanks skye and sms,

I had forgotten that a 50L full bin will sink in the heat. I might just buy me a 20L and send it in the container.
