Had my eye on these for a few weeks. They were £119.99 then £79.99 now £49.99. Out of stock for home delivery but plenty around in stores for free click and collect.

Attractive and versatile 1250litre capacity outdoor/garden storage unit for wheelie bins, garden furniture, equipment and accessories such as lawnmowers, barbecues and toys. With twin doors and lift-up lid this store is also ideal for tidying away two 240 litre wheelie bins.

I must be super uncoordinated , but all I can think looking at this is that by the time I've lifted up the wooden lid , to lift up the lid of my dustbins , whilst trying to chuck my rubbish bag in , I'm likely to decapitate myself Luckily my wheelie bins have survived thus far without the need for shelter

You'd also have to pull a fully loaded bin out by the lip on the front on bin day as the handle is inaccessible.
And for that reason - I'm oot!

What a 'rubbish' deal...

We have four
We've got 4. One for garden waste and food. One for glass and metal. One for paper and card. One for everything else.

How often are they emptied? We have a garden waste, a recycling and a normal. Generally the normal is full and the recycling half full every fortnight when collected, although amazon boxes can easily fill the recycling bin if I've ordered a few bits!

No they aren't. 30 stores within 50 miles of me have them listed for click and collect.

Personally I'd rather do that than have ugly wheelie bins visible from my kitchen window.

To open a tradepro account do you need to give vat details?
Has anyone got one of these and able to review it? Looking at the design I can’t see how that flimsy looking front lip wouldn’t break the moment you pull a full bin over it!
Can you buy one of these for regular bins in the house?

Wickes have all the raw materials you need for that
Can see this won't last very long.
thinking to buy and make some changes to make a log store?
I bought one of these just after Christmas and found it to be very flimsy and felt cheap. I am no DIY guru but I get by ok and still found it frustrating at times. The top leaks down the side of the edge trim so makes the chipboard wet and it consistently wants to lean to one side or the other ever so slightly making the catches hard to engage. As one person commented earlier it is awkward to lift the lid and the bid lid and then put your rubbish in.
In hindsight I'd of gone for plastic.

I know, it's about time they designed these the opposite way round. I did a prototype for one 10 years ago and no-one was interested.
Handy for garden storage, not so much for bins unless you simply require to cosmetically have them hidden away. Or of course if you live in Liverpool.

I agree entirely... However, if our bins are the same size as the ones in the pic, we could potentially remove the brace at floor level, insert larger support brace at the top and hinge the lid the other way round on the brace? Therefore bin handles right way round and no lip to drag bin over!

No one is going to pinch a purple bin so no need.

I don't know I don't have a tradepro account

If you put this at the front of your house, you need planning permission in almost all of the country.

No, I'm not winding you up. I got "done" by the council for it - a small bike shed at the front of the house, around the same size as this. Most people are totally unaware that any form of building, this included, is covered under the planning permission rules, if it's forward of your property.


Plenty of threads on it if you have a google. For example: mumsnet.com/Tal…ore


So in short - don't put this at the front of your house, or if your local Margret complains (why are they always called Margret?!) to the council, you'll get a letter / angry little man pop around making a fuss about it.


In some areas of the country, they don't enforce it. In others, you won't get a week. YMMV.
Ordered for storing toys, thanks OP

I’ve just been thinking the same thing but width at 4ft likely to be too small for an adult bike, probably be ok for kids bikes or storing garden stuff etc.

Hasn’t got a base though so it’ll need a base adding or fixing it to the floor for securing anything of value

Nope, just tell them you're a sole trader and cobble a basic letterhead and compliments slip together in MS Word (other word processing programmes are available)

I saw similar one in costco in plastic, with a base. It was £260 though, so this is bargain compared to that but not as big. This might only be good for a bin or a barbecue.
