I make metal bins for storage of trash bins, I made 2 for my neighboor for his cottage and for his next door neighbour, they do get some blackbears now and again. I made them to fit the extra large garabage bins, they measure 4'x2'x3'. I'm thinking of making the next bins slightly smaller so the height is 30 inches for average size containers. slightly keeping the cost down as well to $400 cnd. The other componet I might add to them is a lifting shock, currently trying to resourse a supplier will add to the cost as well. If any are interested let me know. Located in Bradord ON

There made from 1/8 steel framing, welded solid
top and bottom have cornor gussets,1/2 holes drilled in the bottom for anchor bolting
1/2 diamond expanded metal
I make the hand locking mechanism out of 1/2 round bar, adds to lid strength
has heavy hinges and lifting handle welded on
rust primer and painted
light and very sturdy will take some abuse.

Used to have a family of possums that would take the whole can into the woods and jump on it until the lid would come off. Wound up keeping it in the garage until the morning pickup.
