Trash rules are changing. Are you containerized?

You've probably heard that there are new trash rules for restaurants in NYC. As of today, all restaurant trash must be containerized -- no more bags on the sidewalk. The new law came on fast, with little instruction for restaurants.

CITIBIN is the industry leader in municipal trash enclosures, which the NYC Department of Sanitation has installed in Times Square and 60 other locations in NYC.

Two sizes to fit it all

Our Standard size enclosure that fits up to 4 (four) 50 gallon bags. The Extra Large size fits up to 10 (ten) 50 gallon trash bags. Not sure which one to choose? We'll help you figure it out.


Beautifying commercial corridors

"Who wants to walk down Main Street with trash everywhere? Now it's in a bin instead of on the sidewalk, which the neighborhood notices and appreciates." 
-Tiera Mack, Executive Director, Pitkin Avenue BID

Keeps rats away from trash

How do we know that CITIBIN is rat-proof? First, no customers have ever complained about rats after they were installed. Second, we tested the impregnability by baiting CITIBINs with sausage pizza in a rat-infested alley in New York City to see if they could break in.  They didn't, and we made a video about the experiment. Have a watch!
