I never noticed this thread before, how I have no clue, I thought I'd read everything. There is lots of mention of using plastic bins but I did not notice any mention that the bins MUST BE CLEAR.
Many hedgie owners recommend the Sterlite containers but very often fail to add CLEAR to it. I am guilty of that myself in the past until I read a few replies of I have a blue one, or a red one.... Now I try to remember to add that very important word, CLEAR.
This is just a reminder so new hedgie owners don't get the idea that any bin will work.
