Binguard started in a slightly different guise in 2005 when we first designed a refuse bin locking system, pivotal around the need to prevent feral baboons from gaining access to refuse containers on premises and on the streets in areas close to nature around Table Mountain, Cape Town. After thorough trails which involved Cape Town City Council and other role players, we’ve developed a product fit for the requirements of this unique and challenging environment. Today Binguard focuses on a gravity lock product that we also have developed in-house. Binguard is an upgrade of the original system which residents can now order to install on their 240 litre municipal wheelie bins in order to secure the contents on refuse collection day. In this case, refuse removal truck lifting mechanisms enable the gravity lock to open automatically when the bin is lifted onto the truck to release the bin content into the truck’s refuse container. Thank you, Binguard users, for your appreciation of and compliments on this proud design.
