Safe to say when I was a student, the last thing on my mind was to spend time analysing and identifying the perfect bathroom bin for me and my housemates. truth be told, I think we may have used a cardboard box most of the time. 

These days, the options are endless and students may be more willing to research the perfect bin for their student digs bathroom. In this article, we review the best bathroom bins for students based on a typical student persona.

Why Buy A Bathroom Bin?

The reason behind students needing a bathroom bin is simple enough, but it is worth considering exactly what you’ll require from your bin when shopping for the perfect solution. 

As a group of (often) complete strangers who are asked to live together away from home for the first time there are some unusual considerations that should be taken into account. 

It is worth remembering that student bathroom bins may be the final receptacle for things that many family household bins wouldn’t often see. 

The Perfect Bathroom Bin For Students?

In order to zoom in on the right end of the bathroom bin market, we need to understand our typical audience. Now of course, every student will have their own taste, personality and standards of hygiene but I think it’s reasonable to make some fairly safe assumptions on the living environment of most students at College or University. 

– Multiple users of the same bathroom and often of the opposite sex.

– Typically in their late adolescence and maybe more careless and irresponsible with furnishings. Durability would therefore be wise.

– On a tight financial budget. Unlikely to spend more than £20-25 at most for a bathroom bin.

– Pooled resources will mean no obvious owner at the end of the tenancy therefore the quality and aesthetics are likely lower on the priority list.

– There will likely be higher than usual disposals of personal items like sanitary productscondoms or other items within that department for example, that would best be kept out of sight and so a bin with a lid may be more suitable. 

– There may also be more frequent disposal of bulky, plastic, makeup products or hair products than typical, and the fact that there is more of a social nature, it is likely that the bathroom would go through more shampoo and shower gel. With that in mind, perhaps a larger bathroom bin would be advantageous than ones you would see in generational households.

In summary then we will be trying to source the best bathroom bins that are cheap, large, durable, with a closed lid and that can pass as unisex.
