I found a plan online for a garbage container and wood shed that looked fairly easy to build.
While this solves the depositing issue for trash from inside the home to outside, you need to also look out for what happens to it from outdoor to the recycling centers. When daring DIYer Anne Davis saw a $300 plastic trash can shed, she was determined to build her own on the cheap. Now you can conceal them in an attractive, inexpensive, and easy-to-build shed that requires basic skills, tools, and materials.
Build the frameA diagram of the trash barrel shedCompound miter saw: Rent or borrow one to make straight and beveled cuts on the siding and roof panels (see Lumber List in PDF). In a weekend, your trash cans will have a home of their own that keeps them within easy reach for their weekly trip to the curb.


With a helper holding a door in place on the shed, align the door flush to the top of the side frame, then check that it is level, with a 1?8-in.
Fit the hinged roofCut the angles with a miter sawCombination square: Use one or the other for measuring and transferring angles to your cut stock. Cut the panels with a table or circular sawT-111 Siding: When building outdoor projects, use pressure-treated (PT) lumber instead of standard,untreated lumber.
This type of latch keeps the front doors closed and secure, but easily accessible—you’ll need to operate the hasp when you open the shed doors to remove the cans on pickup day. PT lumber contains low-toxicity chemicals that protect the wood from rot and insects, especially where it contacts the ground or damp concrete.
Attach the hinges: Cut and fasten the fixed roof panel to the top of the frame and rafters using wood screws every 8 in. It’s a little heavier and denser than standard lumber,but lasts longer than untreated wood.
Roof and paint: Measure and cut the roof lid so it fits flush to the finished sides of the shed frame, tight against the fixed panel, with a 1-in.


Prime and paint the doors and siding of the shed to match or complement your home; apply two to three coats to each to achieve the proper coverage and color. As an option, you can prime and paint the shed’s wooden roof instead of applying shingles or another roofing finish. Drill pilot holes and fasten the hingesBuild the side assemblies: This project will be easier to build if you use a flat and stable elevated work table made from a 4-ft.
Cut the siding panels: Drill pilot holes and use wood screws to fasten the horizontal and vertical members for both sides together. Apply the siding: If you rented a power nailer, it can be used to fasten the assemblies, or you can drill pilot holes and use wood screws. Measure and cut the shed’s back panel from the other sheet of T-111 siding with a table or circular saw.
