Useful Bins

For some reason, the 'recycling men' have stopped their door-to-door pickups and we have to drop our recycling waste in the central collection container a few blocks away. Yet, separating waste has become a habit for us.

The accumulation of the recycling waste has become quite an eyesore, although it is tucked in a corner of my kitchen.

A recent find at IKEA brought such a neat solution that I decided to post a picture of it here. I use the lowest bin as my laundry basket and the top two as my recycle bins. The optional wheels also make it easier for me to clean the floor.

Love it!

This is a GREAT idea! I've been wondering how to store bins to store my recyclables separately, so this is one option! :)

Thanks for sharing!

Two things to take note when you put this together. First is that you need to twist the frame so that it balances well when displayed on the floor. Second is to make sure you have the right side up before hitting in the table-top.
