Project Description


City 60

Designer: Hannu Kähönen, 1991

The Finbin® City 60 belongs to the Finbin® Litter Bin Series and is part of the City family. City 60 was originally designed for the City of Helsinki in Finland. Finbin® worked exclusively with the authority using their expertise to design and manufacture the designer litter bins for the city’s public spaces. The project included thorough market research which investigated the easiest, safest and most efficient way of emptying bins. They also focused on developing a bin which was extra resistant against vandalism and other mechanical stress.

This cylindrical bin has a classic design, fitting into all outdoor areas. The front aperture is only 120mm high and has been precisely shaped and measured to keep rain and birds out. The bin can include a fire safety system (flap and fire-trace cable) which is available as an accessory.

The City 60 is made from stainless steel or powder coated galvanised steel, is 710mm high, 400 mm wide and available as a 50-litre unit. If it is installed with a base, the total height increases to 780mm. The exterior can be stainless steel, metallic black or can be powder coated (RAL) to match existing outside environment. (Orders under 10 bins will incur an additional charge if the colour is other than RAL6005, RAL6009, RAL9005, RAL9006, DB703 or metallic black.

It is easily emptied by opening the lockable hinged front door, revealing a galvanised steel liner which is both easy and safe to empty. Fastening options include clamps, wall fixture, plate posts, ground posts and flange posts, metal base and concrete base.

The City bins have already been installed in a number of city centres including Helsinki (Finland), Bilbao (Spain), Malmö (Sweden), English Garden (Munich).
