This one is for UK manufacturers.
Is it a requirement to have a lid on a bin in low risk areas - the only waste would be paper towel/ripped paper labels. No food waste would go in the bin.
The area is low risk as per the BRC decision tree.
I ask as we currently have lidded bins/sack holders - sadly the lids often fail and was wondering if it was legal/BRC standard to have a lid on a bin in low risk. If so could you please provide the reference?
