How to prevent your bins from blowing in the wind

Well, since we mankind is amongst the smartest creatures on this planet – we have devised a way which is going to help us store our waste securely and then dump it in accordance with the orders made by the government. However, the winds that blow over this city can be excruciating if you are a person who is particularly concerned about the cleanliness. Why are we mentioning about neatness? Because the winds are so rough that they are going to make your garbage cans blow away with the winds; thus, dirtying the neighbourhood.

Also, there is a constant thought which is going to keep bugging you "Oh, a windy day! My bin storage is probably not going to be there when I get back home." We have all been through this and try our best to avoid; thus, we have come up with ways which are going to help you prevent your wheelie bins from blowing away:

  1. First of all, if your containers are not completely full as yet, you might want to wait for another week to take the dump out until then the weather may become calm. However, if that is not the case you can follow the steps below.
  2. Allocate an exterior bin storage for your bins and tie them using chains so that they do not take off when the weather changes in their favour of rolling around.
  3. If you know that the weather is not at its best, then it would be wise of you to not leave the bins out in the night and take them out in the morning as soon as the collection drive begins. Keep a check that your boxes are back in your homes right after the garbage has been taken away.
  4. Also, make sure that the outdoor storage bin that you are making use of is not overflowing with garbage and that its lid is closed so that the wind does not catch hold of the waste and dirty the place.
  5. It would be the best if you ensure that the bins are filled with heavy material which is likely to help your barrels from blowing away – for instance, you could rely upon brick to weigh it down. However, if you live on top of a hill, it could be cumbersome.
  6. There is a method of choosing which bins would you be using and it is advisable that you do not make use of around trash can because it is easier for them to roll over in windy areas.

Now that you slightly have an idea about what you could do in such a situation, you are good to go. However, about the bricks – you would be in twos and sixes about using them because if the bin is too heavy the people may choose not to empty them. Thus, there are several other ways through which you can windproof your cans like tying the bin to the closest lamp post. So happy securing
