Discover the story behind CitySolar Smart Bin and Finbin – revolutionizing waste management with smart, sustainable solutions.

CitySolar Smart Bin

Finbin The Story Behind - Since 1945

Like any great journey, we started small. The early days were filled with hard work, perseverance, and a relentless drive to bring our vision to life. It started in 1945 in a small metal shop in Eastern Finland. The original idea was to manufacture modern, durable, easy-to-use and beautiful outdoor furniture that all people could use.

Towards Smart Waste Solutions

In the early years of the 21st century, we realised that we could utilise new technology in order to both help our customers and significantly reduce the carbon dioxide emissions of waste management. In 2017, the most efficient waste-compacting smart bin Finbin® CitySolar® was published. The model has since secured its place in countries all over the world.


Without our brilliant professionals’ vision about being able to create new products with the help of our customers, it would not have been possible for our company to operate since the middle of the past century. Year after year, however, there is one customer that stands out more and more. Nature.

Factory in Ylöjärvi, Finland

In 2021-2022, we made a significant investment of  4.5 EUR in our factory’s production machinery, painting line, and the construction and development of its new plant in Ylöjärvi. As a result, we now have the most modern production facility in our industry, which meets the highest international quality criteria. 


The investment in the painting line has notably elevated the quality of our surface treatment, surpassing the industry standard. This enhancement ensures that our products undergo a superior level of finishing, providing exceptional durability and visual appeal.

Making a Global Impact

Over the years, Finbin has become a leading supplier of waste containers in Finland, and has expanded its operations to over 30 countries worldwide. In addition to waste bins, the company offers a range of products, such as recycling stations, bike racks, and bus shelters, that are designed to promote clean and sustainable urban environments.
