Response: Thanks for your comments. I'm pleased we were able to offer you a shed to meet your needs and to suit you. Regards, Robin
We are all encouraged to be green and to help to save the planet and, to this end, our local councils are asking (demanding) that our rubbish is sorted into various elements and this includes garden rubbish such as grass from the garden and dead plants etc. With a large collection of different colour bins and different policies adapted by different councils it's hard to keep up with what is expected.
You tend to have a grey bin for general rubbish, blue for plastic and cardboard, light blue for papers and glass and brown for garden waste and in some areas there are green bags. As far as garden waste it concerned you could of course put these on a compost heap traditionally stuck behind the garden shed or along side the shed. However, not everyone wants to do this as these can smell, certainly during the warmer weather, and not everybody wants to use compost in the garden as they are happy to use the garden shed and summerhouse as practical outdoors spaces.
So with this wonderful collection of garden bins you would expect some understanding from the councils as to when to put them out but they can be right 'jobs worth' dictating that they must only be put out the night before collection and prior to that must be kept in the garden. Fail to do this and you can be warned by your council that this sort of action will lead to trouble. Even when the days change due to pubic holidays you are still expected to keep the bins in your garden until the night before even though the council don't have any consistency in this issue.
Clearly these bins do create a great problem as these require a great deal of space to store them. As many modern houses are quite small there is very little spare space in the garden for these and they already struggle to have a garden shed in their little bit on England. This was the case with a resident in Harlow who was asked to rip up her beloved flowers and shrubs to make room for these wheelie bins. Sandra St John, a grandmother, was told by Harlow Council that she had to make room for two new large wheelie bins, as large as a small garden shed. As many people choose to buy a purpose built wood storage shed for this purpose it appears this what is expected nowadays, clearly if there is not space in their front gardens.
Mrs St John tried to store these new bins on a concrete base in her garden but struggled to move them each week for collection. As she has only a small garden this makes her garden even more precious to her. She is a keen gardener and likes to spend her time outside and over the years has built up a nice collection of plants, flowers and shrubs and are now just as she would like them. Given the small size of her garden she does not intend to dig up her flowers and to give this up for the bins and as she does not have a garden shed it's not really practical to give up even more space. Only recently councils have introduced waste bins for food waste which make the problem even worse.
It is possible to buy purpose built garden sheds to house these bins but were initially designed to take 2 bins. With the number of bins now being forced upon us you would need quite a large shed to accommodate them all.
