Bin Sheds: The Best Way to Secure Your Waste

Bin Sheds: The Best Way to Secure Your Waste

Do your bins tend to end up damaged or stolen? If so, do you often wish you had a secure place to store them? If this sounds like you, Atlas Sheds have the perfect solution. 

Our bin sheds are designed with durability and aesthetics in mind. With easy opening mechanisms and a high-quality wooden structure, this is the perfect storage option for your wheelie bins. 

Read on to discover the benefits of bin storage and things to consider when searching for the ideal fit for your garden.

The Benefits of Bin Sheds

A bin shed can disguise the old, dirty wheelie bins that are ruining the atmosphere of your garden, enhancing its overall appearance. 

This can prevent pests and insects from being attracted to the waste, reducing spillage, odours, and the spread of germs. Furthermore, If your bins often fall over in harsh weather conditions, a bin shed can prevent this from happening and keep your garden free from mess. 

If you have dealt with neighbours stealing or vandalising your bins, bin storage reduces this risk. Additionally, if you are looking to sell your property in the near future, a garden shed can increase your home’s value. 

How to Choose the Right Bin Shed

Choosing the right shed in terms of function and style for your home is important. To do this, consider the following:

  1. Size and capacity: Determine how many bins you need to store and the shed size you need. Measure the area you want to place it in for a secure fit.
  2. Material: Materials such as wood, plastic, and metal are common options for a bin shed. Consider the maintenance of each and compare it with your lifestyle and daily schedule. Wood and metal may require more regular treatment than plastic. 
  3. Design: Look for a shed that is easily accessible and features simple open mechanisms. Good ventilation is needed to prevent odours, and locks are needed to secure your bins.
  4. Budget: Consider your budget and the long-term value of your shed. It’s better to invest in a shed with a higher initial price than to purchase a cheaper shed that will cost you more to repair and replace. 

Installation and Placement Tips

The installation and placement of your shed are important for enhancing its functionality and efficiency. 

Installation Tips

For a smooth installation, abide by the following guidelines:

  1. Choose the right location: Place your shed in an area that is easily accessible and secure from neighbours. Select a spot with level ground to prevent structural stress and check for any underground utilities beforehand.
  2. Prepare the ground: Remove any debris or plants from the area. For structural stability, lay a base such as a concrete floor or wooden planks beforehand.
  3. Assemble the shed: Carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions for the installation and ensure you have all the necessary tools (hammer, drills, etc.)
  4. Secure the shed: Anchor it to the ground to prevent it from tipping and ensure all the doors and lids open smoothly. 

Placement Ideas

Your bin shed must be easily accessible and not too far away from your house. It may be beneficial to place it close to the door in your back garden for quick trips and security. 

Avoid placing your bin shed where sun exposure is more likely to occur. If you live in a windy area, position your shed in a sheltered area to prevent the wind from wafting odours toward your home. 

For a more visually appealing shed, add plants and flowers around the area or paint your bin storage a colour that blends well with the scheme of your garden.

Maintaining Your Bin Shed

Regularly maintaining your bin shed is a must to ensure you get the most out of your purchase. 

Clean the inside of your shed after every rubbish disposal to prevent pests, odours, and stains from lingering or becoming more prevalent. Seal holes or gaps where pests could enter and use wood treatment to protect wooden sheds. 

You should also use shed cleaners to wash the outside of your shed for a fresh appearance, removing any bird droppings, dirt, and weather stains.
