Four ‘hooks’ are already fitted to the rear of these ‘rustic’ screens. This is to allow the fixing of ‘4 eye’s’ (not supplied) to a solid structure and ensuring some stability when the screen is ‘hooked’ to them. This wheelie bin screen should not be sited on an uneven surface for maximum stability.

For added security perhaps consider adding a wheelie bin lock and clamp.
