Thanks for getting this posted, Darren. If anyone has better information or photos of the actual item, it would be handy to post it here.

Darren, you mentioned the real ones are made of plastic or fiberglass, I know here in England these bins are targeted often by 'arsonists' who take great pleasure in setting light to them, as a result all the ones I know of are metal in a attempt to limit fire damage, have seen cast iron ones that are the same sort of shape. Also these bins have another problem, people dumping rubbish around them, normally you find old push bikes, clothes, large kids toys etc piled up next to them, worth remembering if your planning on using one

Alex the review was written by Russell and I only published it. I am aware of the issues you mention but it depends on the area as to what they are made of, I do however agree that metal is the more common material.

I went with the description found on a Czech site that makes the containers. Before I received the review samples, I didn't even know these existed. We use large square metal dumpster containers here, or curbside bins.
