What I would have suggested there is that you had built the bin where the window is. If for example you could get truck anywhere near that window I'd be able to fill it almost to the rafters without touching a shovel or going in the basement, truthfully. Understandably you might not have been able to do that if you have particular circumstances.
When you're building a bin the window should be as far away from your access point as possible and centered as much as possible.
