CitiBin is an outdoor enclosure for garbage, recycling, and composting cans. And soon, for strollers, bikes, and more.

for homeowners

"After the energy and investment I've put into my home, it didn't make sense to pile garbage in front. CitiBin conceals trash and adds curb appeal. My neighbors and the Landmark Commission agree!"

-Elaine, West Village NYC

for property managers

"Trash management is always an issue at our properties. CitiBin is the perfect solution to separate trash from recyclables, contain smells, and keep scavengers away. Sanitation citations have stopped."

-Trevor, coop property manager

for trade professionals

"Trash storage is usually an afterthought. I love that CitiBin corrals the garbage that would otherwise overtake our landscapes. It's a no-brainer to recommend CitiBin to clients doing stoop projects."  

-Hilary, landscape architect

At last, an attractive and durable enclosure.

Since building the first CitiBin in 2012, we have experimented with materials and design to create the world's best outdoor enclosure. Extensive thought and testing have gone into every feature. The frame won't warp. The doors won't slam. The screws won't rust. Every feature was designed to be attractive, durable, and user-friendly. Not adjectives that typically describe existing enclosures in the marketplace. Almost half of our clients are replacing existing enclosures that had become eyesores.

  • MATERIAL: Unlike wood that warps, steel that rusts, and plastic that looks shoddy, CitiBin is made with a rust-free aluminum frame and recycled bamboo composite siding.
  • READY-TO-ASSEMBLE: By popular demand, we created a kit version of CitiBin so it can be flat-packed, shipped, and assembled anywhere.
  • MODULAR: Double, triple, quad, quintuple, ...decuple, ...treducuple.  
  • LOW MAINTENANCE: Easy to clean; doesn't need to be stained seasonally like wood
  • WARRANTY: 5 years
  • DESIGN: Modern, clean lines (unlike the barn-like trash sheds on the market)
  • PALETTE: Three neutral color choices: coffee, slate, and charcoal

Co-Designed with Clients

We involved customers in beta testing to get their feedback on design, usability, and ease of assembly. We're versioning CitiBin for general outdoor storage. Let us know if you're interested in storage for strollers, bikes, tools, or gardening supplies.

Features

 

Why make such a big deal about trash storage? Because trash can be unpleasant to schlep and store, and the enclosures on the market lack obvious features like locks and adjustable feet.

 

Top doors for regular days.

Front doors for trash pickup days.

Doors hinged on sides for maximum volume.

Minimal, rust-proof hardware.

Lockable.

Soft-closing top doors.

Adjustable leveling feet.

The CitiBin kit is now shipping nationwide.
