Battening Down the Hatches: Protecting Your Bin During Stormy Weather

When a front of warm air clashes with a front of cold air, it sets off a natural phenomenon we call a storm. The collision of these two fronts generates energy that creates winds of incredible force, sometimes exceeding speeds of 200 mph ( 321 kph ). To put that in perspective, that's faster than the top speed of a Ferrari.

These winds can be so powerful that they can uproot trees, which can pose a danger to people and property. But storms can also cause smaller yet still significant problems, like knocking over bins. When heavy rain is added to the mix, the result can be a river of rubbish flowing directly into our waterways. Unfortunately, much of this trash ends up in our oceans, where it poses a serious threat to the health of marine life.

To prevent this from happening, it's crucial to make sure that your bin is locked during a storm. The simple act of installing a bin lock can help prevent rubbish from spilling onto the street and polluting our waterways. Our solution is LockWaste, which offers a bin lock that can be conveniently controlled through an app. Every little bit helps when it comes to keeping our environment clean and healthy.
