Wilkinsons Plastic Bin
Advantages: Cheap, smart and functional and holds a lot of heavy items
Disadvantages: Blooming bin bags roll down in it though I always seem to have this problem to be fair!
Just recently I really needed to replace my old bin in the kitchen. My old bin had seen the best of its days, the plastic had began to crack and no matter how much I cleaned it, it stankmy kitchen out!
I wanted a cheap bin but nothing to big and bulky but still of good enough size for me and my home. They had a selection of bins in my local Wilkinson's store, different sizes of course and different colours and the one I bought is the Wilko Everyday Value Lift Top Waste Bin 50L in white and it cost me £7.00 which I thought was great as it was just what I was looking for and in this size for a couple of quid cheaper they had a cream option and a silver both made of plastic.
It is oblong, made from wipe down plastic and with a slight shine to it. It has a height of 62.1cm and a width of 38.8cm so it isn't huge but sure does hold a lot!
The lid fits neatly on to the base of the bin and doesn't keep falling off though it is easy to remove that when you want to and its a lift up pull down style of lid this one.
Like I stated earlier this is easy enough to wipe down clean and its simple to put a bin bag in it by hooking it over sides of the bin and really pulling it down as much as you can, course if its not secured properly you will get the usual drop down of the bin liner but the same as other bins I have owned!
All in all this is a great sturdy bin and more than good enough for my needs. It holds plenty of heavy rubbish that I need it to and it looks smart, my two main requirements so I am pleased with this and can't believe still that it only cost me seven quid!
Only available from Wilkinson stores.
