a wooden slatted double wheelie bin storage unit

Wheelie bins are certainly not the most aesthetically pleasing (nor the best smelling) of garden features, despite being invaluable to every home.

Furthermore, if the proper garden storage of wheelie bins is neglected, they can cause even more unpleasantness.

This is the reason why wheelie bin storage is such a sound investment.

Think we're exaggerating? Then please read on...

Why You Need Wheelie Bin Storage

Firstly, urban foxes and rats love nothing more than rummaging through wheelie bins on the hunt for an easy meal.

This problem is exacerbated if you’ve forgotten to put the bins out and they’re now overflowing with rubbish – not exactly the best way to endear yourself to the neighbours.

Secondly, fools and pranksters have been known to kick over an innocent wheelie bin, leaving its contents strewn across your driveway.

Some may even steal your bin. This is no laughing matter when councils charge up to £20 for a replacement.

Thirdly, strong winds can easily topple a wheelie bin, rendering them instantly susceptible to pests on the lookout for food.

So, what’s the solution to these ever-present problems? Yes, you've got it...a wheelie bin store, of course.
