The Bin Strap
We no longer sell this item. We will be replacing it with a similar item very soon.
If your wheelie bin is exposed to the winter elements the wind is likely to have caused the bin lid to open on occasion. Sometimes this will lead to bin contents being blown about or the bin falling over and spilling its contents.
This means more work for you and a greater threat that vermin will be attracted to your home. It can also annoy your neighbours if it is blown into their property and could possibly lead to fines from the local authorities.
The bin strap is a new Irish made product which addresses this issue and keeps the contents of your bin safe from falling out.
