Bash Your Trash

Many of us in the UK now have green bins for garden rubbish, collected every two weeks. A positive step in keeping this type of biodegradable material out of the normal bin but they fill up quickly.

If you are out in the garden this weekend just half an hour of ‘trimming’ will probably fill your bin, so you might like to know about TrashBasher.

This simple metal attachment clips onto your bin and allows you to compress the green contents so you can get more in. If you have a council which fines you for your bin lid being open (or refuses to empty the bin), the TrashBasher can compact your contents and allow you to get the lid closed.

It is easy to store, lightweight, easy to use and costs £19.99 online from Maplin.
