The bins don't seem to be standing up to our winters. Not only that, the tops of the large ones seem to bread easily. The one in the centre is for the building next to where I live. They are using ours at the moment as they have yet to replace this one after 3 weeks of it being broken. Ours has a split in the side and it's a matter of time until it's toast as well. The person who collects seems to squeeze the hell out of them with the robot arm they use to put empty them into the truck. Really don't think that is needed.
