    Hi,

    I'm looking at a cover for my horrible wheelie bins that need to get put in the garden.

    I initially thought of putting a concrete base down, but not sure that's really suitable with the paving slabs next to them. Also I need to get the bins manoeuvred in/out easily.

    I also wonder if I can just drill into the wall to anchor the cover down?

    Any advice is gladly appreciated.

    The large Keter "store it" cupboards hold 2 large bins. I had my washing machine and dryer in one for 2 years till we had space for them elsewhere. Put on slabs with a tiny bit of fall.

    why not post a link to the one you're going to buy, so we can advise more effectively?
    And yes, slabs or concrete base would be fine

    Just consider what a hassle it might be dragging them out of there when full, especially if you only want the one at the back so have to move 2 others etc.

    This thread reminds me of a story my mate told me when he worked on the bins. They noticed that one house hadn’t put their wheelie bin out so they knocked on the door. A little Chinaman popped his head out of an upstairs window. "Oy mate, where’s ya bin?" He asked. "I’ve been in the bath" was the reply, "No, where’s ya wheelie bin?" He asked again. "Sorry" he said "I was having a w ank in the back bedroom”. He swears it was a true story but I’m not so sure. :rolleyes:
