Trash & recycling in the kitchen

Hello,
I am planning out my new Adel White kitchen. I want to incorporate storage for kitchen trash & recycling ideally under one of the cabinets (most likely a pull-out cabinet.)
Can anyone offer any tips on practical solutions for trash/recycling storage options?

Thanks!

Re: Trash & recycling in the kitchen

Don't know if this is an option, but Pollyq's kitchen has a recycle chute that disposes recyclables in the garage. If it won't work for you, at least it's an inspiration. Here's the link: Picasa Web Albums - Pollyq - Kitchen Renov...

Re: Trash & recycling in the kitchen

My sister is using a 15" tall pantry pullout for garbage and recycling. The different cans etc. go in small blue bins that fit the pullouts perfectly. The paper and cardboard go on the bottom behind the garbage in tall skinny blue bins. These tall bins are meant for paper-type recylcing on the back of cabinet drawers. They have 2 screw holes for mounting. A cool idea. We got them all at Home Depot.

Re: Trash & recycling in the kitchen

I can’t believe I’ve been on this forum this long and have never seen this chute! I *love* it! I *have* to show DH . He currently has the garage wall open because he is recessing our standard fridge so it will look counter depth and we haven’t put up the back splash yet… Hmmmmm…

I also love Dulci’s extra 3.5 inches of drawer space below the sink! I’ve seen Dulci’s pullouts – but I never realized they were different. Did I miss something somewhere? My below sink trash pullouts are one of my favorite things in my new kitchen – but an extra 3.5 inches would have been Great! :-)

Re: Trash & recycling in the kitchen

We did a 15" pullout with a rev-a-shelf trash and recycling. It's one of the best things in our kitchen - no more pile on the counter for recyclables!

Re: Trash & recycling in the kitchen

I'm using a corner cabinet for trash, recycling and composting. I don't have it installed yet, but here's a picture:



I'll use one can for garbage, one for recycling, and the third for storage of garbage bags, with a small compost bin on top.

Re: Trash & recycling in the kitchen

That corner unit looks great. Corners are just not that great, but that might be great use of a corner. But I'd like to see the cans maxed out in size. There still looks like there is tons of clearance around the sides. Why don't manufacturers learn that we want to make the most out of every possible cubic inch of space?!
