How to Build an Outdoor Garbage Enclosure
Learn how to construct an outside garbage enclosure that is attractive and animal-resistant.
Build a garbage storage enclosure outdoors, out-of-sight, and out-of-reach to the creatures who view the garbage as a tasty meal. The enclosure consists primarily of a cabinet with a hinged lid and front-opening doors that both allow easy access to the garbage cans. The structure will sit on a base frame of pressure-treated two-by-fours and decking. Painted tongue-and-groove panels will cover the upper frame of the enclosure to create a convenient, good looking, and tamper-proof place to storage the trash until the scheduled weekly garbage pickup.
