Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Opens in all directions for easy access, blends into surroundings
Cons:Careful assembly, not super sturdy (but decent)
The Bottom Line: For easy outdoor access for something you want to tuck away, this is great.
We've had this now for over 6 months to hold our trash cans outside the kitchen door. It has held up to regular use. Overall I am very pleased with the purchase.

It is big enough for two large trash cans. It is really nice to be able to open from the top to drop bags in, and then from the front to move the trash cans out. It was a little pricey, but I am very pleased with it overall and would purchase it again if I had to do over.
It is also a nice neutral color, so it blends in and doesn't look too obvious in the side yard.
Be very careful with assembly. If something gets put together in the wrong order, it is a pain to pull it apart and redo it. This is one where you don't want to be too confident - read the directions! We live in Wisconsin and put it together in the winter. It became very difficult after about 15 minutes because the pieces froze. It probably would have been much simpler in the warmer weather. The problem was that I assembled the sides in the wrong order and they would NOT come apart again. I had to move the unit into the garage and put a space heater on it. Then, with two people we were able to take it apart and reassemble.
