Recycling bins and containers

Organic waste, plastic, paper and cardboard, glass… Each in its own bucket. And where do I put them? We give you ideas to choose the best containers for your kitchen. Recycle!


Several buckets on a rail that allow you to easily remove them. It is a perfect system to place in the low furniture of 60 cm depth. Each of the cubes is removable so that you can take them directly to the street container and pour in, for example, the glass or paper. It is a system from Brabantia.

Attached to the door

The buckets follow the movement of the furniture door and “come out” so that you can dump the waste comfortably.

Keep in mind that glass jars and bottles take up a lot of space. Plastics can be folded and paper and cardboard can be folded. Organic waste also needs a lot of space. System, from Ikea.

If you have a large drawer, you can fit the buckets inside it. You don’t need to fix them, just adapt them to the space. Photo, from Ikea.
