I have a sterilite bin, and I just leave the top off. I use liners, and it's super easy. The hardest thing about using a sterilite bin is the heating- You have to have a space heater because heat emitters build up too much heat and heating pads can get to be too hot for hedgies. I definitely would go for it, they're super easy to keep clean too, and if you ever need to move the cage around you can just pick it up or drag it (which may not seem necessary to most people, but since I'm in college he gets shuffled around between my dorm and my house for vacations and such). Good luck!
