Refuse and recycling binstores for wheeliebins and eurobins
With external wildlife habitat panels, Greem Roofed Bin Shelters create tidy collection points for refuse or recycled materials, and new opportunities for enhanced bio-diversity.
Shelters are free standing and accommodate either wheelie bins or 1100 litre Eurobins. Shelters are safe and simple to maintain.
Our shelter roofs are planted with locally appropriate species to enhance biodiversity, while roof and wall-mounted wildlife habitat gives space for invertebrate refuge, forage and overwintering. (Our green roofs are not a shallow substrate topped with sedum. Although these are classed as a ‘green roof’, they offer very limited biodiversity value.)
The soil type and plant species on our roofs are determined by the locality, often in discussion with local Wildlife Trusts.
Typically we use a mix of native wild flowers and a few non-native plants to produce a mosaic of flora with an extended nectar season.
We are well known for our habitat panels, and these are often included to add further wildlife value and biodiversity awareness. Infill materials for these panels, (man-made & natural) can be for nesting materials, invertebrate refuge, forage & overwintering. When suitable, there is scope for including bird nesting boxes.
