Pimp My Bin

Australia

Pin it button big

As of 2003 Australia has been in a drought so we’re always looking for different ways to reuse water. Reusing grey water from the washing machine [remember to use a phosphate-free laundry powder!] is common practice as is storing that water in a wheelie bin with a garden tap at the base. However, unless you happen to live on a hill, with the wheelie bin at the top and your garden going down hill it can be quite difficult to get the water from the bin to your garden. Thankfully, the clever people over at Enviro Friendly have come up with the answer to this dilemma...

Enviro Friendly wheelie bins have a built in pump so gravity no longer decides where you water in your garden! They also include a suction hose for your washing machine, an entry for your down pipes and a safety lock for the lid. The cost varies depending where you live but expect to pay around $500. But surely you can pimp your own bin for a fraction of that price.
