For the life I me I cannot seem to see anywhere that sells them?


99% are round, the few that are rectangular have flip lids, or are push button/pedal etc. 


All I want is a basic bin around 40L, with a manual lift off lid, needs to be rectangular to make the most of the space in the garage.


Something like this from Southern hospitality seems perfect, but I want to see if there is anything else out there as I would rather make do with a round one than spend that much on it.

You don't have to use the pedal on a pedal bin.

@timmmay - Yes I have already walked around Mitre10 and checked their website, only looked at Bunnings online so far.


@Inphinity & @andrewNZ - Ideally I want a fully removable lid, not just a flip lid as it will still need to be emptied into a wheeli-bin, and would like to avoid bin liners if I can.


@RunningMan - I had checked The Warehouse out as well, none seem to fit the requirements.

Why can't you just cut off the hinge on a flip top?
