The bin itself is then restocked with a new bag.
In order to improve hygiene aspects, the body of the bin has a sliding mechanism which closes the bag airtight when closed. This mechanism is triggered by sensors when the user holds his hand over it or throws something into it. Then the bin opens and contaminated objects can be disposed of. When the sensor-controlled area is free again, the bin closes automatically.
