Hey everyone,
Currently in the middle of a storm and have quite a few problems with our wheelie bins being blown around and nowhere to put them except for inside the house!!

We don't have anything available outside to store them in and need a solution for outside the house. I have looked for a few bin locks but they only lock the bin itself, it doesn't secure it to anything.

The only near relevant thing I have found is a "Bin Guardian" wheelie bin lock which actually secures it to the wall which I found on amazon. I have also been told that I could use a hidbin but I just see those as making the problem worse by catching the wind even more.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these if you can recommend them?

I've not tried either of those products, but think another option would be a fenced corral area. Like the hidbin, it would disguise the bins, but should also prevent them from being blown away. Open palings might catch the wind less than a solid panel.

If it's going against a wall -- and depending on wind direction -- it could be either two fixed sides plus a gate or two fixed sides and no gate. The bins could be wheeled in/out one at a time, much like supermarket trolley bay systems.

Provided the fence isn't too high, you should still be able to access the lids of the bins. If you wanted to make a virtue out of necessity ... you could always plant some climbers or a thin hedge to give a softer look !

Good luck
