Trash cans, yard waste containers, and recycling bins surely weren’t the focus when you were designing your dream backyard, but now they’re just there.And while they’re a necessity, they don’t have to be an eyesore. There are countless outdoor trash can storage solutions available, ranging from DIY to store bought. We’ve got our eye on one that stands out from the rest: The Suncast Outdoor Trash Hideaway.

Here’s Why We Love It:

Large Size

This trash can hider is just under 3 feet tall and just over 1 foot wide in each direction. Its size makes it big enough to hold a 30 to 33-gallon trash bag, meaning you won’t need to constantly trek to the curb to toss your trash. Plus, the Suncast Hideaway trash container eliminates the need for an actual garbage can, since all you have to do is secure a trash bag inside its 4 walls.

Actual dimensions (W x D x H): 15-3/4 x 16 x 31-5/8 inches

Easy Assembly

This Suncast garbage can hider doesn’t need tools for assembly, which earns it a gold star in our book. When you unbox the product, you’ll have 6 pieces: 4 sides, 1 lid, and 1 base. The 10-minute setup is quicker than any DIY project. All you need to do is snap the pieces together and then it’s hello new trash can.

Latching Lid

The latching lid is our favorite part of this trash can enclosure because it serves so many purposes. The secure lid prevents odors from escaping, which means no more walking by your trashcan and getting a waft ofthat smell. The lid also keeps curious pets and pests from snooping through last week’s waste. It keeps its contents from spilling out if knocked over too.


This outdoor trash can coverup is made of durable resin that withstands the weather, no matter the season. The light taupe resin doesn’t look too shabby either. While the construction of this trash can cover makes it strong enough to ward off the elements, its design makes it more than acceptable to use both indoors and out.

Don’t let your trash cans be the main attraction of your outdoor space. Keep your backyard looking – and smelling – dreamy with this trash bin storage option.
