A topical blog article covering four ideas for getting the most from a wheelie bin store


With households in the UK producing more waste than ever before, the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs reported in 2016 that this amounts to over 25 million tonnes every year meaning recycling has become essential, therefore directly impacting how rubbish is stored in the UK.

Gone are the simple days of having just one rubbish bin, households now require different bins for food, rubbish, recycling and more, though this is great for the environment, it can make a home appear cluttered.

Below we have listed 4 useful tips to help you decide whether a wheelie bin store is the right option for your home and some of the things you can do to make the most of storage.

Store your wheelie bin shed in the garden

The front of the house is the first thing people see, and rubbish doesn’t represent anything positive therefore  wheelie bins are best kept out of sight to help avoid bad odours and clutter, especially if you have a small or awkward shaped garden. We recommend not leaving wheelie bins stores outside the front of the house unless they are awaiting collection.

Our suggestion is to use a wheelie bin store to disguise bins in your garden; using a wheelie bin store results in a cleaner, quality, organised storage system which is easy-to-use allowing you to get the most from your garden space.


Use larger bin stores

For family households of four or more bin storage is often a bone of contention because as already mentioned waste is growing. A common misconception is only food waste is increasing however glass, textiles and shoes, electrical batteries and other miscellaneous items are on the increase too so try to factor this when considering how to store your bins. To help combat the growth in waste the engineers at Jacksons have designed a double wheelie bin store - the most common size which fits two standard bins, usually.

This means your general, recycling bins can be stored away in an organised fashion however there are options to have a triple wheelie bin store, or a store with in-built shelves to allow you to enclose smaller bin types.


How to stop wheelie bins blowing over

One huge benefit of wheelie storage is the reassurance that your wheelie bins won’t blow over because they are safely contained in a storage shed.  This also stops animals from tackling your bins and provides you with peace of mind during stormy weather.


Why choosing bin storage is wise

Enclosing rubbish bins highlights a clear level of pride and care for outdoor space. Wheelie bin stores are a modern method of organising your waste and all wheelie bin stores at Jacksons have been carefully designed using Jakcure treated softwood, with Tongue & Groove effect boards which are exceptionally strong and of course guaranteed for 25-years.

If space is not a concern, one common option to store rubbish bins is leaving them at the side of your home where they are often hidden from the front of house display nearer to the back garden. No matter how well designed your garden may be there’s no getting away from the unsightly view of rubbish bins, unless they are enclosed in a wheelie bin storage or hidden behind a wheelie bin screen.
