I’ve been looking for a decent sized bin for the workshop. I wanted something metal with a lid, so that I didn’t have to worry about setting it on fire if I weld near it. You’d think it’d be a common requirement, but all I could find were fancy kitchen bins or ridiculously expensive industrial pedal bins.

In the end, I found a store on eBay selling 205 litre tapered steel drums complete with lids for £23.99 (even including delivery!). After adding an old door handle to the lid plus a couple of bungees to secure a bin bag, it’s perfect!
