could it be that in certain cases the warehouseid.ToString is returning an empty string so that when you execute the statement the sql is
select strBinLocationName, lngWarehouseBinLocationID from tblWarehouseBinLocations where lngWarehouseID =

The biggest problem I'm seeing becomes apparent when you snip some of the code out.  I'm going to step through the code with a comment next to each thing:

        Dim DS As New DataSet     'Instantiates the DataSet
        DS = CType(Cache("BinLocations"), DataSet)     'Possibly leaves the DataSet as Nothing
        If DS Is Nothing Then  'Only do this if the DataSet is Nothing
            '<snip>
            dataAdapter.Fill(DS, "tblWarehouseBinLocations") 'DS is Nothing, throw exception


DataAdapter.Fill will not instantiate a new object for DS.  The way you solve this would be to make the following change:

      '<snip>
      If DS Is Nothing Then
            Dim oCon As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(Context.Application("ConnectionString"))
            DS = New DataSet
            'the rest of your code
