The Vipp15 pedal bin is a medium-sized trash can for the kitchen, office, or bathroom. Rubbish is a renewable take on the original pedal bin in 75% recycled materials. Wood leftovers from Vipp’s tabletop manufacturing and plastic waste is reprocessed and transformed into a new Vipp signature fibre material shaping the body of the bin. To minimize the use of steel, the Rubbish bin’s inner compartment is fitted with a metal ring for the mounting of bin liners replacing the standard galvanized inner bin.

‘Rubbish’ is Vipp’s renewable take on its pedal bin from 1939, a design classic now available in 75% recycled materials.
KASPER EGELUND, CEO
"By reusing industrial plastic waste and leftovers from our wood production, we wrap the Vipp bin in recycled materials, ready to take your sorted trash for years to come. And at some point, be handed over to the next generation.”
Signature fibre material
30% sawdust and 70% plastic waste are reprocessed and transformed into a new Vipp signature fibre material shaping the body of the bin.
Safeguarding original traits
The original dome-shaped lid in stainless steel remains intact as a unique design feature of the original bin. Rubber components and pedal mechanism are equally repeated from the standard bin due to its proven long lifetime and durability.
The bin corpus is dressed in its natural state ressembling the raw rind of a log. Each surface holds a unique structure, some might see smaller imperfections, but we call them beauty marks.
3,7 kg less steel used per bin
Each Rubbish bin exchanges 3.7 kg of steel with plastic and sawdust otherwise burnt in a trash burning facility. Recycling the wood means that CO2 are stored in the product rather than released into the atmosphere.
