Everyone needs a trash can in their yard, for parties if nothing else. Maybe you have a lot of land and just want one where it’s useful. But you don’t want the plastic ones? Add some style and decoration to your yard and landscaping with these trash cans made from real oak wine barrels.
RECYCLED: These rustic wine barrels still have the barrel rack marks and wine stains proudly showing their years of winery service. All this adds a special touch for those who are sensitive to ecology and recycling.
UNIQUE: We’ve cut a small door in the head and put it on hinges so it’s easy to throw the trash in. Just open the door and toss. We also added a latch to lock it when not in use for those pesky critters looking for table scraps. Next we cut off about 5 inches of the barrel and put a hinge on it. A latch is optional. So when it’s time to empty the can, just open the large hinged top and take out the bag. You may want to latch the little door first or it will flop open. Since the normal black trash bags don’t fit the 59 gallon barrels very well, we have added a 22 gallon plastic can inside. The black trash bag fits the small inside trash can. To empty the trash can, open the lid and pull out the bag. Leave the plastic can inside. These barrels come with a wood bung to close the bung hole from insects.
HAND CRAFTED: It is hand crafted by us with love and quality in mind here in California, USA. Every product is custom made to order. Please allow us up to 3 weeks after payment to create your product.
INCLUDED: 22 gallon plastic inner trash can
OPTIONS: For a more refined look, we can sand and finish the barrel, even so, there will still be some remaining marks and stains. If you desire this, add sanding and medium walnut oil to finish the barrel.
We also suggest that if the barrel will be sitting on dirt to add our wine barrel stave feet under them to help keep dry rot away. If you are planning on placing it on cement, add the stave feet to keep the barrel from leaving rings on your patio.
Another option is to add a mini dolly under the barrel if you plan on moving it from time to time. You will need to screw the mini dolly to the bottom of the barrel. Two screws will be provided for this. Wine barrels are about 100 pounds empty.

CUSTOMIZE: Call or email us if you want to personalize the barrel. Personalization is extra.
Please note that although the same care and quality is put into all of our products, there will be natural variation due to the wood selection (either French or American white oak), wood figure, winery or cooperage markings, wine stains from the inside of the barrel, and other factors. No two pieces will be identical and each has its own story to tell!
