  • Brick on top was my first plan, doesn't work. They just keep leaping at the bin until it falls over (even when I've wedged it between other bins).

    Moving to Barnet sounds a particularly drastic solution.

  • Massive bulldog clip on the lid and the lip? Or a bungee maybe


    I've got one if these, handles all our food waste and gives us loads of decent compost for the garden. Council bins are rank when only collected every other week.

  • Ha we actually also have one but it doesn't seem to break down eggshells in the time frame it reduces everything else to a nice compost in.

  • I tried a bungee, fox gnawed its way though the same night. A bulldog clip may work but suspect it may ping off when a fox keeps jumping at it.

    The hotbin looks useful but even the small one is quite big and we don't really need the compost. Food waste is collected weekly rather than normal waste which is fortnightly

  • You got some serious foxes. Brick has been sufficient for our wimpy Kingston gang.

  • Foxes: distract them with Chickens?

  • They're the terrors of the local area. Seems they break into people's houses too.
