Innovative Features Improve Efficiency and Reduce Labor Costs

Winchester, VA (September 11, 2007) - Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP), the leader in durable facility maintenance solutions, introduces its Premium Step-On Container line-new, innovative product additions for smarter waste management.

Rubbermaid's new Premium Step-On makes waste collection more efficient and helps reduce labor costs. Innovative features include an integrated lid damper and heavy-duty can liner retaining straps. With aesthetically pleasing designs, Rubbermaid's Premium Step-On Containers are the smart choice wherever a large capacity, hands-free waste collection solution is required.

"A recent CleanLink survey found that labor-related costs are the number one concern for maintenance professionals," said Christen Brooker, product manager for RCP. "Our new Premium Step-On Containers, in 23 gallon and new 30 gallon capacities, help cut labor costs by reducing the frequency of trips to empty filled containers. Can liner retaining straps also improve productivity by eliminating the need to tie knots in can liners. Workers will find these new Premium Step-On Containers are simple to operate, with a large foot pedal that's easy to locate while carrying bulky loads. These containers help workers get their jobs done quickly and efficiently."

Rubbermaid's Premium Step-On Containers feature a self-closing lid with an integrated damper mechanism that prevents slamming and helps keep odors and bacteria from escaping. The quiet slow-close lid and hands-free step-on function make them suitable for a variety of applications, including healthcare. They assist in complying with OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.1030, Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens, and are the only quiet, slow-close step-on containers that are Factory Mutual (FM) and California State Factory Mutual (CSFM) rated.
