What is CITIBIN?


CITIBIN is an attractive, durable, low-maintenance enclosure for secure outdoor storage.

We created CITIBIN because we were looking for an enclosure that met our own needs and criteria. We couldn't find one, so we built our own and created a business to make it available to you. Since prototyping our first unit in 2012, we have experimented with materials and design to create the world's best outdoor enclosure for garbage cans and storage bins. Extensive thought and testing have gone into every feature. The frame won't warp. The doors won't slam. The screws won't rust. Every detail was designed to be attractive, durable, and user-friendly. We've done the research and can promise that no other enclosure in the marketplace can give you the benefits that a CITIBIN can.



Unlike wood that warps, steel that rusts, and plastic that looks shoddy, CITIBIN is made with a rust-free aluminum frame and recycled bamboo composite siding



Modern, clean lines provide a sophisticated alternative to the barn-like trash sheds on the market. Offered in 3 neutral color choices: coffee, slate, and charcoal



Whether you have 1 can or 20 cans, CITIBIN can be configured to any size you need. Our standard model is for 32-44 gallon cans; our XL model is for 50-65 gallon commercial cans with wheels



Built-in hasp for the lock of your choice to keep everything safe and secure

Base box is entirely enclosed in aluminum sheet metal, keeping out unwanted intruders like rats and scavengers

Get your CITIBIN now


The CITIBIN kit ships nationwide.

In response to demand for CITIBIN outside of New York City, we developed a pre-fabricated kit that can be flat-packed and shipped. A CITIBIN kit comes with pre-assembled panels and doors, and hardware for you or a handyman helper to bolt together.

For a limited time, shipping is FREE on CITIBINS in the continental United States.

Feeling uneasy about assembling CITIBIN yourself? We designed it to be easy to assemble, but that's for you to say. An assembly video and manual will be available here shortly. 



If you're in the NYC area, installation services are available. We'll also gladly cart away your existing enclosure! At checkout, select installation and/or enclosure disposal.




CITIBIN ships within 10 days of placing your online order.



Prepaid orders made by March 15, 2018 on standard-sized enclosures (for 32-44 gallon cans) are guaranteed to be installed/shipped by April 2018 and XL-sized enclosures (for 65-95 gallon commercial cans) by August 2018.
