A: Yes, the capacity will easily hold a 50 pound bag. The lid does not make an airtight seal but the unit weatherproof to keep out rain and snow. The lid and bin overlap for a full 360 degrees around the bin to ensure all any drainage will stay out of the chamber.
A: Yes it can hold 6 or 8 bags I have had this product for a year and it is water proof.The scoop that comes with it is ideal size.So much easier scooping out of this than the bag.
A: There is an opening to allow the lid to be locked with a padlock. The lock does not come with the bin.
