1. Material

HDB rubbish chutes, like condo rubbish chutes, are usually made of 2 types of material. Regardless of what kind of material the rubbish chute is made up of, it is always necessary to take care and maintain your rubbish chute. This is so that you preserve its shelf-life as long as possible, and you don’t have to worry about unwanted pests or foul odour around the refuse chute area.

Stainless Steel: Is resistant to corrosion, is anti-rust but not scratch-proof.

Aluminium: Is resistant to atmospheric corrosion, is anti-rust and scratch proof.

2. Air tightness

An airtight rubbish chute is an important feature. It keeps out pesky pests and foul odour emanating from the depths of the garbage collection areas.

You’ll be surprised at how the smallest gaps can be exploited by the industrious cockroach, ants, lizards and other insects. Look out for rubbish chute suppliers who can provide assurance that their rubbish chutes are cockroach-proof.

If you want extra security, you can always install a lock on the rubbish chute but do note that this may invalidate the warranty of the HDB dustbin chute. Others have resorted to strong duct tape, or flesh out a pricey sum for a magnetic rubbish chute.

3. Tensile Strength 

It refers to the ability of the rubbish chute to combat against the user’s strength and weight of the rubbish it holds. A higher tensile strength means that you should not encounter any loose hinges at the point the rubbish chute cover pivots to open and close.

Take care not to be rough when opening the rubbish chute, or trying to force it open beyond its maximum angle; to accommodate a too-large rubbish bag.

4. Brinell Hardness

It refers to how easily the rubbish chute will dent upon impact. It is not usual for a HDB rubbish chute to be dented easily as it would be of useless quality. You can be assured most HDB rubbish chutes will be of a decent quality.

5. Short or Long-Tongued Rubbish Chute 

The tongue is the thing that sticks out from the rubbish chute opening when closed. It is also the thing that you lay your rubbish bag in before closing to dispose of it.  A short tongue is more suitable for lower floor HDB units to avoid loud bangs from rubbish bags thrown from the upper floor units, that will hit your HDB rubbish chute tongue.
