Putting rubbish inside rubbish..... really?

I suppose as a general storage box for tools, garden furniture, barbecue etc fair enough, but what's the bleedin point in storing a wheelie bin inside a box? And a hundred notes! Some people have more money than sense.

To be honest I like the idea of not having to look at the horrible bins but I have 4 so would have to buy 2 of these!

Blasphemous

I thought this was covered in the OP. Local wildlife round our parts treats bins and bags as an all you can scavenge buffet.

Wheely bins like their own space, have a heart and buy 4.

Wildlife as in tramps?

And what a faff everytime you wanted to put something init! Youd have to open the top lid right open to be able to get the lid from the bin,which opens the other way, if you use the handle to get it in and out,drop your rubbish and reverse description.now do that in the pouring rain...
just get a piece of trellis on a t stand and put that infront of it.

Inventing sh1t that really does not need to be invented...

Two lids to lift, rather than one?

one hundred pound to put your crap into your bin :-/

its just a ketter storage box marketed as something else, got one but dont use it for bins

Used to have one in the back garden for go karts and all the kid's other garden toys. But was sick of the sight of a wheelie bin and 3 recycling bins sitting outside my front door. So cleared out the toys and moved this to the front of the house - wheelie bin in one side, recycling in the other - love it.

Plus the postie leaves packages in there if I'm out saving me a trip to the post office

These are great, but I'm looking for a storage solution, for the storage solution I keep my bins in.

What kind of wildlife do you have that can open a wheelie bin? Bears?

These things look dreadful. For £100 you could build something nice in wood to hide your wheelie bin. Put some trellis on it, grow some honeysuckle up it and your garden looks nice. Dump a fugly plastic box in your garden and it just looks awful.

Lateral thinking fail... why don't you just get 2 bungee cords and 2 hooks then screw the hooks to the under side of the lid and stretch a bungee across a bin lid's handles then hook it to the underside of the lid of the big thing... then it will just lift the lids up when you lift the outer lid... FTFY

BTW these seem like a great idea, but I've got a stack of wood ready to build my own 3-bin box down the side of the house (when I've laid the path)

So this 'wildlife' around your parts, if it's able to lift the lid of a Wheelie Bin, what's to stop it lifting the lid of another plastic box...? If you don't like the look of Wheelie Bins, if you'd prefer to have your plastic Wheelie Bin stored inside another plastic box then fine, it's your money, spend it how you wish.

Lateral thinking explanation fail!

Brilliant idea and deal. For those of us who live in areas where yobs think it's fun to tip bins all over the street. These could be locked up to save this problem.
