In the Market for a Trash Enclosure?

The Buyer’s Guide explores your options, not just CITIBIN

20-second recap:Buyer’s guides are incredibly popular for a reason. Savvy shoppers research before buying everything from the latest iPhones to laptops to SUVs. After a decade of making and improving secure and stylish trash bins, we know pretty much everything there is to know about trash enclosures, and we decided to share what we know with you! To help homeowners and property managers pick the perfect trash enclosure for their price point and property,  CITIBIN created an easy-to-use trash container buyer’s guide. There’s no hard sell, simply helpful information.

Why buy a trash container? 

Depending on where you live, the laws on trash containerization have likely changed. In New York City, restaurants, bodegas, and food retailers are now required by law to store trash bags off the curb and in sealed garbage bins. 

Homeowners are starting to realize that a secure trash container system improves curb appeal and deters rats and other critters. But before buying, there are so many decisions to make. For that reason, CITIBIN decided to help simplify the process. 

Before you head to a big box store like Wayfair, Home Depot, or Walmart to choose a trash enclosure, you should probably read through our trash container buyer’s guide first. While we’d never try to convince you to purchase a CITIBIN solution, after comparing options, you might find that we’re the best fit for your needs.   

Download our buyer’s guide for access to the full checklist of what to know before buying a trash bin. 

Here’s a sneak peekatsome of the information in our trash enclosure buyer’s guide:

  • What is the size of your trash cans?
  • What are the pros and cons of plastic, metal, and wood? 
  • Do you need a rat-resistant or bear-resistant system? 
  • How much do different types of trash enclosures cost?

CITIBIN created a trash enclosure buyer’s guide to make it easy for you to think through the options. Wood or metal or plastic? Size? Maintenance? The buying guide is about trash enclosures generally, not CITIBIN specifically.
