It looks like it's just laths layed on the slats and nailed or screwed together. If you were to rout slots you would be exposing the less treated inner part of the timber which would encourage rot to set in.

It is probably routed out and then pressured treated
Expensive process for small quantities
You could enquire at your local merchant about providing the finished profile pressure treated. I know Carvers would provide such a service

It appears to be made from Decking boards, not a great design in my opinion, there being a rail below the gates, and obviously a full bin would need to be lifted over it, not an easy task for the elderly i would think.

If I didn't have access to machinery, I'd follow Woodsmith's approach above. i.e. batten either side and screwed together, sandwiching the slats in between, and then maybe nail a third piece on to cover the exposed edges. Just adopt a common sense approach - this isn't fine furniture making. :D
Cheers, Roger
