Over the past couple of week, Britain has been hit by Storm Ciara followed by Dennis.  We’ve had to batten down the hatches as winds of up to 70 mph have taken grip.

So spare a thought for the humble wheelie bin.  Sure, it’s sturdy, but if the weather gets really wild, it might need a helping hand to stay grounded.  Once your wheelie bin has been emptied, ensure you return it to a safe place in your garden to stop it being blown down the street.  Place a brick or something of similar weight in the bottom of the wheelie bin.  Invest in wheelie bin storage such as a garden bin store or a wooden wheelie bin store.  There are many different types you can buy which can be an attractive addition to any garden.

Take responsibility for your wheelie bin as you don’t want to feel the wrath of a neighbour because your flying wheelie bin has nose-dived into their car!
