10 useful bin store ideas

Helpful bin storage ideas to keep the outdoors neat and tidy.

While wheelie bins may be extremely practical and necessary, they can sometimes be an eyesore when it comes to your outdoor space.

Investing in a bin store will not only be more aesthetically pleasing but may also function as a deterrent to theft, keep animals such as foxes away from the rubbish and stop bins toppling in bad weather.

We have collated a range of bin storage ideas to show what’s available at different price points and help you decide what size, materials and features you prefer.

Bin stores are most commonly built from FSC timber, stainless steel or plastic, though we would recommend the first two for durability. And while most have both lids and doors for easy access to your bins, more expensive models can be fitted with locking systems for added security, or dedicated shelving for recycling bins.

For more storage solutions, take a look at our selection of the best outdoor log storage and shed storage ideas. For those in need of freeing up space in the garden shed, try our guide to the best garden storage ideas for inspiration.
