Wheelie Bin Sizes UK

If you’re looking to buy a wheelie bin storage unit and you want to find out the size or dimensions of your bins, you can often locate this by looking at the bin. Wheelie bins often have their size embossed on them somewhere.

If however, you are unable to find this information, below we’ve listed the approximate dimensions for the most common wheelie bin sizes in the UK.

80L – 44.9 x 51.3 x 93.5 cm (W x D x H)

140L – 48 x 54.4 x 106 cm (W x D x H)
240L – 58 x 58 x 107 cm (W x D x H)

Wheelie Bin Storage Size

Once you know how big your wheelie bin is, you can then start to look at the different storage units. Several of the wheelie bin storage units we’ve listed above offer a number of different sizes. The Keter storage units offer a double unit for different sized bins whereas many of the wooden units offer storage for 1, 2 and even 3 wheelie bins.

Price

Whether you have a small budget or a large budget, you’ll quite quickly notice that wheelie bin storage units vary somewhat in price. The price you’ll pay will mostly depend upon the size, style, and material you choose.

As with all garden storage products we would always recommend you spend as much as you can afford as the money you spend will often ensure your storage unit will last longer.

Building and Installation

All wheelie bin storage units will need some form of building or installation. From some of the plastic models which simply clip and click together to the wooden and rattan units which will often need screwing or bolting together. One thing we would always recommend is that you get some help.

Bin storage units are quite often large, bulky and awkward to handle by yourself. Your unit will therefore not only be easier to build but will also save any damage or injury if you do it with help.
