Rubbish Bins, do you need one?
Hell yes! With a great selection of pull out Rubbish bins hidden behind a doors or drawers, where you can efficiently deal with packaging and food scrap waste products, makes life so much easier.
Read on for our top picks for rubbish storage:
There a basically three types of common rubbish storage solutions we recommend, under sink bin or a pull out bin attached to the base shelf in the sink cabinet or a separate cabinet with a series of bin containers arranged to suit.
Behind the door under sink bin:
This type of bin is hinged onto the back of a door usually under the sink.
These are ideal if you don't have room for a separate bin cabinet.
Designed with a lid designed to open & shut as you swing the door , it's an easy cost effective option for under sink rubbish storage.
The bin lifts out, for easy emptying and cleaning.
Downside is there is no way to separate plastics and biodegradable food scraps.
These bins are limited in size and so can only store smaller items.
Bins hinged onto the back of a door are very common in kitchens and if you cannot fit a full pull out bin, I would recommend these handy little bins, for every day kitchen rubbish.
Bin attached to bottom shelf behind a door:
Single or double pull out bins designed to be installed on the bottom shelf of your sink cabinet behind the doors. The ability to sort your rubbish for recycling is a big advantage with these types of double bins, with 2 containers, you can sort & store easily.
Downside is the fact you must have a larger sink cabinet width wise, to accommodate these bins & plumbing, and generally no room for a waste master. Plus there is quite a lot of bending down and so may not suit everyone.
Pull out drawer/bin systems.
These bins are installed in a separate cabinet specifically designed for rubbish collection.
The ability to sort your rubbish for recycling is again the advantage.
The best point about these bins are they are installed at bench height so access, cleaning and use is by far the most human friendly, with no bending down or lift heavy bins from the floor to the benchtop.
1,2,3,4 container options are available in the pullout drawer version and with so many combinations to choose from, you are free to sort and recycle with ease.
Downside is cost and that fact that you need to have the space in your kitchen design, for a specialized cabinet for waste storage.
If you have the room and you budget allows, definitely this is the way to go!
