Trash cans can quickly become an unsightly challenge in the neighborhood. A good solution to this problem are our My Mülltonne bin boxes. These offer not only aesthetic advantages, but also protection from the weather and animals.

A rubbish bin box not only hides your rubbish bin, it also beautifies your outdoor space. You can choose between different materials such as wood, stone or metal in order to adapt the box perfectly to the requirements and your ideas. Another advantage of garbage can boxes is that they are available in different sizes and therefore also offer space for several garbage cans.

This is how you can hide your garbage cans:

  • Planting: Another option is planting. If you have a garbage can box with a planted roof, you can plant beautiful flowers or shrubs in your garbage can box and thereby create another eye-catcher. In addition, annoying odors are hardly or not at all perceived.
  • Privacy: If you don't want a garbage can house, you could also use privacy screens to hide the garbage cans. Although these are available in different sizes and materials, they are often very noticeable and do not offer much protection against wind and weather.
  • Placement: Finally, the placement of the garbage cans can of course also help to hide them. For example, you could hide them in a corner or place them behind a wall or hedge.

What is a dumpster?

A rubbish shelter is basically the same as a rubbish bin box - a cover or casing for rubbish bins to protect them from the elements and unpleasant odors, and to improve the appearance of the garden or outdoor space. The term "garbage shack" is often used to describe boxes made of wood or other materials that look more like a small house.

A garbage house is a sensible investment if you value a neat and aesthetic appearance and want to hide your garbage cans aesthetically. A rubbish bin box offers not only an attractive solution, but also protection from animals and unwanted visitors.
