About

The wheelie bin cap product has been designed & developed for the last 12 months & presently is made from a tarpaulin material which is proving expensive to source & then produce.  Originally the desire was to create a bin cap that was durable, fire retardant & capable of carrying a logo for marketing purposes (branded for businesses & colour coded).

The bin cap has been tested for the last 12 months & is very effective in keeping the bin cap in place, even in high winds/storm weather. It also protects the bin from scavenging by wildlife & protects the environment from litter spillages.

During the collection process, the cap is simply pulled back & hangs at the rear of the bin.  It does not impede the bin collection process & we have received positive response from the bin collection companies.

The funds raised will help us source alternative materials in the production of the bin cap which are;

  • More environmentally friendly 
  • A more cost effective material which keeps the sales price attractive
  • Can be customised for branding purposes

The remaining funds will help us market the wheelie bin cap in Ireland, the UK & globally.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge to date has been to source the right material & get a manufacturer to produce the product. This has not stopped me developing a working prototype model & from there selling up to 100 caps to date. The interest to date in the bin cap has grown orders in Ireland & the UK to enquiries from as far as Australia & the USA. My ambition now is to take the bin cap to a new level with a more cost effective material which is environmentally friendly.

I will not stop until the product is right & meets the criteria I have set out. To date with minimal funding I have designed & developed the product, branded it & developed an online presence www.wheeliebincap.com that is getting hits from across the globe.
The wheelie bin cap can be designed for any type of wheelie bin & has global market potential..
