Dave can you give us a follow up on how your outdoor bin has fared through your summer heat and winter cold? I have a shady spot ,but wonder if the opossums and raccoons would be after them at night.

The outdoor bins work perfectly through summer and winter, and we've never had a problem with pests of any sort. We do keep the bins covered with plywood and they are in the shade all day.
