What’s the best outdoor bin store?

Whatever your requirements, there’s a fantastic range of outdoor bin store available. All will require some assembly but most come with easy to follow instructions. You’ll probably need more patience than DIY skills or tools!

 

Our favourite has to be the Keter Store-It Out Midi Garden Storage as it’s solid, maintenance-free and easily locked. You could store 2 wheelie bins or a mix of recycling bins and a wheelie bin. Also at under £100, it’s highly affordable.

 

Also at the top of our list is LIFETIME 60212 Horizontal Storage Shed. Again it’s durable, well designed and maintainance-free. However, unlike the Keter it’s pricey.

 

Finally, it’s worth mentioning the Charles Bentley Nordic Spruce Triple Bin Store. While large and a pain to assemble, it’s flexible and comes with shelving, allowing you to quickly convert it from 3 wheelie bins to 2 wheelie bins and 2 recycling boxes.

 

Whatever you end up buying, if you purchase a wooden unit, consider painting it to blend into your garden. There are loads of exciting colours available and most only require a single coat.
