The endlessly clever continuous bin liner system – Longopac – already boosts some impressive attributes making it the go to waste solution for major UK Manufacturing and Retaill brands. However, one aspect of the design did place restrictions on its use especially within the food industry, hospitals and airports.

Whilst not a concern for the majority of its customers, Unisan UK took on board concerns some had with the provision of scissors, which are secured to the Longopac bin system via a heavy duty lanyard.

After designing many prototypes, the Longopac system now comes with the option of a safety cutter. Securely fitted to the Longopac structure, this new feature removes all previous safety and security concerns around the use of scissors.

wyn, Key Account Manager at Unisan UK said “We constantly look for ways to make recycling and hygiene at work  easy and cost effective and this is just one notable example. Sometimes, it’s the smallest things that make the greatest difference so all feedback is welcome”.
