Wilkinsons Plastic Bin
Advantages: It holds rubbish
When I first moved into my new home I invested in a value bin to save the pennies. A year down the line I had basically a bucket left as I had broken the lid due to its poor quality. This prompted me to go in search of a new bin which had a nice sturdy lid.
Whilst shopping in Wilkinsons I came across a plastic bin for just £5.49. After giving the lid a few whacks to make sure it was sturdy I was happy to take advantage of this generous bargain.
The bin comes in a dark grey/black colour from head to toe. I prefer a dark colour bin in the kitchen as light ones tend to look disgusting it you spill anything on them. The bin is a good size for a kitchen holding 25 litres. For me it fits nicely inside one of my taller kitchen units although it is not a complete eyesore and would not ruin a kitchen if out. It is made from a tough plastic which over the past 7 months I have owned it has never lost its shape. Despite being in constant use the colour of the bin still looks. When empty the bin is extremely light which is handy when moving it around.
To maintain and clean the bin is very easy. I just use a few squirts with antibacterial spray and wipe it down with a damp cloth. If I accidently split a bag in the bin I sometimes take it outside for a hose down.
The lid is very useful. It slides backwards to open up the bin. When closed it keeps the smell of the bin inside. When removing the line you simple lift the off. I have dropped the lid many times and given it a few whacks and it still works fine.
I saw a few weeks ago this was still in Wilkinsons for £5.69. This time I saw it was available in a variety of colours such as blue, red and white. In my opinion the black/grey still looks the best. I would highly recommend anyone in need of a bin to snap this up.
Summary: a great bin
