Wheelie Bin Stores

85% of the country already use wheelie bins for refuse disposal, Martyn Loach reports that this percentage is going to get much larger in the near future when the Second City adopts this system.

Selected households in Birmingham will receive two wheelie bins. One for household rubbish and another for recycling paper, glass, cans and plastic. 

Wheelie bins are preferred to bin bags since they create less waste, encourage more recycling, lead to cleaner streets and save taxpayers' money.

There's no doubt that they are successful in making the streets look tidier, there's nothing worse than bin bags dumped by the side of the road, some splitting open to spill their contents on the pavement.

But they are not a particularly attractive enhancement for your garden. So why not invest in a wheelie bin store, where they can be safely stored out of sight.

Bin And Garden Stores

Rowlinson offer single, double and triple wheelie bin stores. They all have a natural timber finish, with a stylish design that covers the bin but allows easy access. 

Usefully, the lid of the store can be attached to the bin lid so they open at the same time. The timber is pressure treated to protect against rot and can be painted or stained if desired. 

The Grange Bin and Garden Store can fit two bins and has extra shelf space for paper, glass and plastic containers. The water resistant roof will also be useful if you choose to store any alternative items.

If you prefer a plastic store, Suncast manufacture the Kensington 6 & Kensington 8, steel reinforced multi-purpose units that can also be used to store garden equipment and even bikes. 

The stores, that can be padlocked, are large enough to hold two bins, with the roof and two front doors opening to offer easy access. 

So, be ready when the wheelie bins are rolled out all over Birmingham, or cover up the bins that are already in use in other parts of the country, by choosing your store from GardenSite now.
